Welcome to - a website devoted to the Liaison Aircraft of WW II, the men who flew them, and groups operating or restoring them.

Links - Useful resources for L-bird research

The liaison aircraft are not as flashy, not as good looking (to some people as a P-51 Mustang), and are not as popular in the history books, or with World War Two aviation enthusiasts. The available literature and online documentation reflect this. Below you will find some of the webmaster's favorite Lbird related websites and resources. If you have more, please send them to me via email. We're always on the lookout for good websites.
