Kind of neat, except for where they call the C-130 stenciled on it a bomber.

That's what I thought too. I was going to send the seller a message and let them know that, but I would have had to sign up for the site...so...nah!!

Talk about 2.6 $ per liter of 97 octane leadless - the current price over here

Do we have the highest bid

"a classic bomber painted on the front of it"

Now there's someone that really knows their aircraft. Wonder if Pay Pal would honor a buyer dispute over a inaccurate description?

Gas Prices

Just have to chime in for a second....everyone is talking about gas prices here and there.....go to your local Block Buster or the like and see if they have the movie.." The Formula ". Folks that movie is an eye opener, especially the ending! I'm done, back to our regularly scheduled programming !!!

We could all get out our crappy old luggage, spray paint a stencile of a real classic bomber on it and then sell it on Ebay with the proceeds going to Dag!

Like the Phantom...

Like the nice big Phantom on your "office" wall.

Very rare to capture it in a dual flame-out configuration.

(You know, no tell-tale tailpipe smoke and all.)

A man after my own heart. Father in law worked on them overseas...

If it is a picture of one of the re-engined Phantoms, it would not be unusual for no smoke (no, the US did not do a re-engine job, and yes, I do know what I am talking about after a 30 year career in the USAF)...Pete M

Its funny, you are 110% right!

The art work was taken from an actual photo, and the story I saw about this artwork on the web showed no smoke at all. The actual plane was about 1000 yards from the carrier and taken from a escort ship, not sure if that is all true, but that is at least what the story said.

Thanks, Dag

Navy F-4J and F-4S Phantoms flew with smokeless J-79 engines. I flew the F-4J, and it was very nice not to be immediately spotted during air combat maneuvers due to a long smoke trail pointing right at my aircraft.

Cheers, Karl

Eurcoupe, had a boss I worked for had a scale eurcoupe that he used as a trainer (taught about 14 people, including me to fly with it), since they were certified by the FAA to be 'unspinnable' it flew well no matter how ham fisted (or thumbed) the pilot was.

Hi Jeff, fooman,
Thanks guys!
A friend of mine , his name is Rod Machado, nationally known CFI is a firm believer in Ercoupes and feels people should learn to fly in one, then move into a
"rudder pedal" airplane.
Ercoupes are just "PLANE FUN" to fly!
If you guys are ever in my neck of the woods, you're welcome to a ride!
Did you know that the military first used Ercoupes to test JATO bottles?

I'll see if I can find the picture of it.
Yep, I found it!
Here it is!

Notice the built in "downthrust" in the videos.
It also has right thrust built in also to counteract the left turning tendency on takeoff
caused by engine torque.
The fins and rudders set outside the prop blast.
All part of this airplanes unique design!


Better yet! CHECK these Ercoupe JATO videos out!!!
There's no sound, but the videos are cool!

Jato - Ercoupe Part 1 (11 min 15 sec)
part 1

Jato - Ercoupe Part 2 (5 min 5 sec)
part 2


Sorry Dag, but I think you'll get a kick out of this too!

Ed
