When you say that an aircraft was used as a hack, what does that mean? For instance, when mentioned about field-modified p-47 Doublebolts.

Google falls down on this one-- every variant of 'hack' and 'airplane' I put in just gives links about hacking on-board wifi.

Ah, my bad ... it means "just being used for visiting, errands, and sometimes joyrides", not really for operational missions, not at all for combat missions.

Thanks. I figured it was something like that but couldn't confirm my guess.

I think it's related to "hackney" -- which has a somewhat flexible definition ... how one gets from a horse coach to a "hackneyed expression" is a bit hard to understand.
