    This is how Trivia works:

    You ask a Question that has a definite, factual, known Answer

    We tell you what we think the answer is

    What you're asking is:
    "What's your opinion and why"

    Here's a WWII Trivia Question:

    What covered the outer surface of the B-17G "5 Grand"?

    Well, technically, yes. Aluminum is also a technically correct answer.

    But that is not the answer. This is a non-standard thing, and quite remarkable. If you saw it the answer would make itself obvious. Nothing at all like needed equipment. The plane could fly very well without it.

    The signatures of the workers at Boeing ? I'd imagine it was the 5000th B-17 built so they all signed it, like they all signed the last B-24. Am I right ?

    What German Aircraft in WWII had the unofficial nickname "Natter"? (Adder in English)

    What were the Natter pilots supposed to do after engaging their target? How was the Natter supposed to land?

    Thanks Chuck! I assume the prize money will be sent to my Ebay account, yes ?

    I know the Natter answer, but I'll let someone else have a go.

    That would be Dr Bachem's Ba349 - vertical takeoff rocket interceptor.
    After firing the single rocket salvo the pilot separated the cockpit from the rocket motor and parachuted to the ground (in theory). The motor had its own chute and could be reused.
