Whats the deal with that, anyway? If seems like the references to the P-39 are almost equally divided in referring to this plane as the Aircobra or Airacobra.

I personally prefer Aircobra, but what is the proper designation?

So, Aircobra is just a common mistake.

Well, I'm glad they didn't call the P-63 the KingAcobra, at least. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ps - Skalgrim, did you know that the word "cobra" came from Spanish or Italian and is short for "cobra capello" = "snake with a hat" or similar (referring to the hood); it probably came from Latin coluber = "snake"... Interesting, eh?
