The stories of the Yank involvement in aviation are well known, as are those of the Euros.
The other day I saw a delightful cartoon on Netflix about the life of one of the driving minds behind the development of the Japanese Zero fighter plane built by Mitsubishi. Personally, I am fascinated by the Japanese of that period. As a country, they’d decided to go straight from the 18th century - directly into the 20th with no pit stops. They did that in a time when the world largely regarded them as comical little yellow monkeys with buck teeth and big glasses. The story isn’t about the plane, but rather the people and the times. Usually these things are done by live actors, but this one was done in spectacular “Japanimation”.
I dunno how accurate it is historically... but I will gratefully add it to my scant archives. If you have an interest in such things... you are in for a treat.
