The card only decks for aircraft were discontinued many years ago. However, you can sometimes find them at online stores from time to time on closeout.

WW2 is a lot harder for you than WW1.

The old Wings of War system had "boxes' and "boosters." Boxes usually had 4 maneuver decks and 5 or 6 planes to use them, with lots of different paint schemes for the plane. (3 boxes for WW1) Boosters for WW1 would have 2 maneuver decks and 2-3 planes to use them-- more than that with the "Recon Patrol" booster that had one deck for "generic 2 seaters" and about 6 planes that could use it. I think there were about 6 boosters for WW1.

For WW2, there were only 2 boxes--The starter set had 4 decks and about 7 planes to use them. Me109 and Spits each had their own decks- with just one card difference and several planes shared the other 2 decks. The "fire from the sky" box had more fighters and a deck shared by dive bombers.

The first "boosters" for WW2 each had 3 decks of one plane time-- Me109s or Spits. They also did a booster for "The last biplanes" and another with lots of versions of just one plane-- the Soviet, pre-war, I-16. And that was the end of it for WW2 cards only options.

Wings of War: The Dawn of World War II has quite a few cards in it if you can find it. This what got me into the series.

I know I have at least one copy of Fire from the Sky in shrink and may have an extra copy of Dawn of War as well.
Drop me an IM if interested.
