Air force? As an entirety or as separate components (Naval aviation, bombers, Tactical, fighter)? I would say that the US has to be number 1 especially in Naval and Tactical aviation although the Russians had excellent ground attack aircraft as well as the Brits Typhoon/Tempest. According to numerous World War II historians the German side was far ahead in air warfare technology, they even developed the world's first stealth aircraft, making its first flight in 1944. This stealth jet was known as the Horten Ho 229 bomber and was designed to carry 2,000 pounds of armaments while flying at 49,000 feet at speeds north of 600 mph, it was equipped with twin turbojet engines, two cannons, and R4M rockets.

The aircrews of RAF Bomber Command during World War II operated a fleet of bomber aircraft carried strategic bombing operations from September 1939 to May 1945, on behalf of the Allied powers. The crews were men from the United Kingdom, other Commonwealth countries, and occupied Europe, especially Poland, France, Czechoslovakia and Norway, as well as other foreign volunteers

My purpose in reading this book was for research about WW2, but it is excellent reading for young women and girls. Call it a can do guide for anyone who thinks they can't make a difference, or has doubts about being successful at what they want to experience in life.
