thank you thank you thank you
thats it. Yehaa
Now your gonna make me crank up my cad for the rest of the nite.
I definatly dont have the skill >YET< to build but nothing like starting early. LOL
Thanks This is going to make my weekend studying up on this bird.
Wow, what a bunch of interesting airplanes!! Interesting, too, to see the same one several times (such as 65 and 69 - Douglas Skyshark, I think), and in some cases see the identifications IN the images.
Paul, #3 is NOT a Stratocruiser, it is a Stratoliner (Boeing model 307), and it is a derivative of the B-17 (Boeing model 299), not a predecessor. The Stratocruiser (model 377) is a B-29 (or B-50?) descendant.
Sorry to quibble, but the 307 is on my MUST do list, and I am so glad to hear that Boeing is going to restore (again) the airplane in the picture (after it's little swim in Elliot Bay earlier this year).
more recognitions ?
That 'Amiot' in picture 4 looks suspiciously like something made by Handley Page to me !
The roundels on the 'plane do not look french . . . though I could be wrong.
Picture 6- It was Airspeed that designed and built the A.S.39 Fleet Shadower in 1939.
Picture 8 - That is an Amiot - an Amiot 143, with the wheel covers missing.
030 - Blackburn Firebrand.
048 - PZL Mielec M-15 Belphegor, a Russian jet-powered crop-duster !
087 - Hawker P 1040.
113 - Latécoère 521, a 12-engined flying boat to rival the Do.X !
120 - The aircraft numbered 0705 is a Let L-200 Morava.
187 - VFW-Fokker 614.
191 - Boulton Paul P.111
192 - Boulton Paul P.120 (a development of the above).
193 - Fairy F.D.1
195 - Hawker P1081.
197 - Supermarine Type 535.
198 - Vickers Viking, re-engined with R.R. Nene turbojets. The World's first Jet Transport, flown for the first time on 25/7/48.
212 - Rutan project.
226 - Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer.
228 - Short Stirling.
247 - Supermarine Attackers.
248 - Supermarine Spiteful.
262 - Polish PZL Mielec TS-11 Iskra.
273 - Avro Lancaster used for testing a jet engine - for the Vulcan I think.
278 - BAC One-Eleven being used to test new radar.
279 - Boeing 757 Research ? ( + 280 )
322 - AIDC AT-3, this is a Taiwanese trainer.
That is enough, for now !
Yes, #279 and 280 are the first 757, with bits and pieces added to it. It was used this way to integrate the F-22 avionics. It's still looking somewhat odd but not this odd.
Some other IDs:
218 (and 217) - Saunders-Roe Princess
231 - A Lockheed P-38 on skis!
165 - also a P-38, but what he's doing that low with one engine feathered and gear up is beyond me!
158-161 Northrop XP-56 (as ID'd in 159 and 160)
149 Northrop N1M
323 Douglas XB-19
THis is too much fun - I gotta get back to work.
