From the series' wiki page at BGG:
The Fighting Wings series of games was designed by J.D. Webster and covers air combat in World War II. The series goes into great detail in attempting to model all aspects of the air war as realistically as possible which results in a fair amount of complexity.
Each of the games focuses on a particular place and time period and includes a large number of scenarios, Aircraft Data Cards (ADCs), and historical background.
The designer was also responsible for the Air Power series of air combat games involving jet aircraft.
