The Baltimore Wh***
That's the thing. It was a very high performance airplane that very inexperienced young men were learning to fly very quickly so they could go fight in a very deadly war. So there were lots of training accidents-- but not all that much more than with other types-- and those who survived their training benefitted from the airplane's very high performance as seen in lower combat casualty rates.....They went on to have the lowest combat loss rate...
