Title: Name That ????
Post by: undatc on February 03, 2007, 04:19:33 AM
Welcome ladies and gentlemen of all ages and sizes to the worlds favorite game show, NAME THAT _________!

Ok so that was my attempt at a cheesy game show opening, anywho, I figure lets start a game here are the rules:

1) post a picture of anything and we have to guess what it is.
2) if its an airplane, no N numbers and no make/model markings
3) same thing goes for cars, make use of 'paint' and put a black smudge on them
4) for places they have to be at least nationally known, like the walk of fame in that china square place in hollywood or wherever it is
5) We reserve the right to make it a lot harder if we think its to easy.

Cassutt? Looks like an earlier model. Tom Cassutt flew for TWA and attended the first EAA fly-in in 1953. He had the airplane designed by the following year. He designed and built the racer without any mechanical experience, and it was something that EAA could point to in the early days in efforts to get homebuilts accepted to the CAA (precursor to the FAA). One hot little machine and still being built today.

How about this one...? The N number is visible but is too small to read (at least to my duck eyes...)
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Turbomallard on February 03, 2007, 05:27:55 AM
Though I have no idea what it actually is, id say you're right with the Cassutt type.  And I have no idea what yours is.  Got one for car lovers out there...


It's a tough one. It was never put into production, was the subject of at least one lawsuit, and has a connection to designer John Monnett, though he didn't design it. I've been told that an astronaut had connections with it, but I haven't been able to verify that (Shhhhhh! I know you can guess what it is, SoccerMom!!!).

Just a shame his twin-jet ultra-light design wasn't built but at least he got Rutan to make that there instead from what I could read on this article http://members.fortunecity.com/alicat1/type91ml.htm
That pointy nose reminds me of the second of the lifting-bodys that helped develop the NASA Shuttle Orbiter and enabled it to land after re-entry without having to have extra engines/fuel on board.

Definitly not a Midget Mustang, they're a low wing, not a shoulder wing.  They also have a tapered wing.  (I was lookiing the web site just the other day, thought about ordering the plans.  Also have a neighbor with a Mustang II). 

I'd have to agree it definitly looks like an early Cassutt to me.  Still one of the most popular Formula 1 race planes.  It's another one I've always thought looked like a whole lotta fun.  200+mph on a stock 100hp O-200.   ::thinking::

So Frank, what model IS that?  I'm in the "Rutan bastardized" category too -- so what exactly is it?

And, I think I am wrong on the one in the rafters...  Hmmmm...  will wait on my next guess...  Obviously TurboMallard gives me WAY more credit than is due......  quack, quack..........

And, a computer question for all you talented people -- is there a way to somehow blur or delete an aircraft name?  I have a photo to post but the name of it is plastered all over it!  Thanks, in advance......... ::wave::

Frank, that's one of the guys I work with and he was being a FUNNY GUY and had zipped his pant legs together to make a skirt, the pant zippers go all the way up and around, because the suits are so bulky, anyway, he was modeling that one day on standby in the 100+-degree heat (39+-degree to you) and had everyone roaring...  and yeah, they say much crazier thnings than THAT about their "Mom"!!!!!!  HA HA!!!!!    ::rofl::

You win!

The problem was that they modified the design substantially from Rutan's original configuration, the thing was dangerous in its new form, a ton of money way lost, and they took Rutan to court. Rutan was found not guilty, as he was a ble to demonstrate that it was their "tinkering" with the design that made it dangerous/unflyable.

Hey, S-Mom, if you open your picture with Microsoft Paint, you can then use the paint brush to black out the tail number and any other identifying markings on your picture.  Then "Save As" so you don't save over your original and post using the "additional options" on the reply page.

Ha ha, these gorgeous cars look JUST like the piece-of-garbage junkers I owned for decades, while trying to learn to fly (yessss....  I'm STILL trying!!)  They were an impressive collection of duct tape, baling twine, bungee cords, chunks of 2 X 4s (my gas pedal  :D), and even a kitchen spatula pressed into service on a clutch.  And No, I am not kidding.   :P

HEE HEE!!!!!!!!!!    :D

Hey Gulfstream, THANK YOU for the advice, I appreciate it!!!!!!  I will give that a shot and see if I can post the photo.   :)  You guys are all so quick that you will know it anyway!!!!

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Frank N. O. on February 07, 2007, 06:14:18 AM
Those cars are the latest and first of the legendary cars named after the P-51. The first is a new showcar designed by Mr. Giorgietto Giugiaro, designer of such cars as the DeLorean DMC-12, Maserati Bora, VW Scirocco, Lotus Esprit etc.
The second is the very first Mustang, mid-placed 4-cylinder engine if I remember correctly. The second concept was a low-roof car that looked a lot more like the first 64-model, or 64 1/2 as I think it's called.

Sorry I'm not that active but I've had some tough days and today isn't looking to be better, but I'm still here, just can't get some replies together that well since I want to do some good well thought-out ones but the stress is making me forget the posts I wanted to reply to.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Frank N. O. on February 07, 2007, 07:30:24 AM
Well compared to the Mustang-I car then I think the Mustang-II looks a fair bit similar except the different front and lack of bumpers front/rear. I do think that many new cars are going overboard with looking crazy after the 90s with soapbar-shapes (smothed down, no character), now the cars again seem to copy lines, like the air-outlet fron the bulging fron wheel-arch like on the Mazda RX-8 which now is seen on euro-Fords, Mitsubishi's etc. I liked the New Edge design, also the New Edge Cougar, sold as Ford in Europe and Australia, which it actually was, based on the Mondeo mk2 suspension. The car is nice, but I think it was a bad choice of name for it since it historically has nothing to do with the original Mercury Cougars but the car itself was nice, I even saw one yesterday here. There are also a surprising number of new Mustangs here, also allegedly a Shelby GT500, they seem to be outnumbering the 60s classics in the country, and almost no Fox-Body or SN95s are here. There are also several RX-8s, but almost no RX-7s which is a shame since it's a nice car if you know how to handle/take care of it. Ups sorry, went on a cartalk again there.

I got a few pictures of some planes you might not know, I'll post them until a little later if there hasn't been another quiz then.

Yes, quite an amazing plane indeed although that about the de-icing was news to me, thanks for the information, is it your photo/have you seen it in real life?

And here's another mystery machine, this time an old classic! If it's too hard to guess then I'll settle for just the factory-name if you don't know the model-name.

Hi Frank, yes, that is a photo I took of the Proteus.  We were working at the same airport.  It was an honor to meet their crews;  they are some of the most accomplished pilots around, as I am sure you know.  I can say that is by far the most unusual aircraft I have ever seen close up!  It is amazing.   |:)\

Ohoh! Actually I do not remember. my guess was a geopgraphical one. Since it seems that the plane could be european, switzerland was still missing.....
And it seems to me, but I cannot say it for sure, that he has a kind of swiss flag half hidden from the wing..........(an option that would not automatically say it's brand is swiss too, but....). Mates, I'm not good at all in recognition! ::silly:: ::silly::

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Frank N. O. on February 13, 2007, 08:43:40 AM
Nope, not German (although the company names (only two of them) sound like it, but the company-name is usually just written as their initials). I must say I thought you guys/gals would've easily guessed it by now. What if I give a hint that I've seen one (perhaps the very one in the photo since not many were made) in real life?

Edit: Oops, I hadn't noticed there was a whole extra page of posts until after I posted my reply to Gulf's post. Actually come to think of it maybe I did, then I might as well just spill the beans and find a different one, an easier one.

It's a danish "KZ IV" Kramme og Zeuthen model 4. And it's not the swiss flag, it's a medic symbol. It was costum-built to be used by Zone-Rescue (later combined with Falck rescue which exist to this day and also work with the county with fire-engines and ambulances) to pick up sick people from the many small islands we have.

DonYan: Thanks for the info, sad to see the plane crash but it's still proven itself in many ways as far as I've read. I didn't know there were other pedal-powered planes though besides that one that crossed the english channel, thank you for that information as well  |:)\

The danish-made KZ IV was actually the replacement for the Dragon Rapide for Zonen-Rescue (which merged with Falck some years ago and now it's just called Falck). A Dragon used in Denmark by Zonen is also on display at the plane museum I was in, as was another dragon, the SAAB Draken (meaning "The Dragon" in swedish).

I don't know much about australian planes sadly, except the GAF Nomad one of which I've actually seen in person in Denmark.

Here's the answer to Name That Island  ::rofl::
Ø besides being one of the unique three scandinavian letters actually is also the whole danish word for "island" (Island btw means Iceland in danish). The second of the unique letters Å is also a full word besides a letter, it means "creek". I grew up in the cove south of Copenhagen and then lived in Odense to the west for 10 years where I also got my first and so far only from, flying over Odense then heading north and a little west looking at the pretty coast there.

I was going to post a more commonly known plane but I can't find the picture so I'll post this long-overdue reply to DonYan and get back to you with the plane later :)

Ah... now here's a good one! Any takers? Hints: Picture is circa 1961 and the plane, of which one was ever built (so far as I can tell) crashed, killing its builder/pilot.

TM
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Turbomallard on February 20, 2007, 03:01:04 AM
The delta airplane in the pic I posted is a Delt-Air 250. Only one was built. It was designed by a guy with no formal aviation background. He was also the builder. He did a fair amount of research for the day (1961, when risk was higher and more accepted in society as a whole) and believed it good to go. He only earned his private pilot's license a month before the fatal test flight and of course had no experience in anything close to this airplane. He also made the first flight in a 20 KT direct crosswind. Bottom line: a pilot with maybe 50 hours TT tried to test fly an untried airplane with an unconventional delta wing and pusher prop configuration. To make a long story short, he got it off the ground, then lost control and crashed.

I read about more senior EAAers decrying the lack of members building original designs today, and I understand their point... if you look through issues of Sport Aviation from the 50s-mid-70s you note that about half the homebuilts seem to be original one-ff designs. The fact is, however, that we're MUCH safer today, even if the vast majority of us are flying designs made from kits... designs from professional designers with components fabricated by craftsmen.

The original article on the Delt-Air is an interesting read, if for no other reason that it's a frank discussion of the subject, something EAA would never print today in the carefully PR crafted publications of the 21st century where accidents are glossed over lest anyone get any bad ideas (take the two-paragraph hidden article in Sport Aviation about the three fatalities at last year's Airventure as an example). I have the original article and can send it in PDF; if anyone wants it drop me a note off the board.

Interesting; a pity he didn´t live a longer aviation carreer... |:)\ You are right about (and not only in Aviation) a Society that believes covering the Sun with one finger (ussually the midle one) ::sulk:: is "Safer". Reminds me of the Ostrich that buries her head to avoid Danger... ::whistle::

We also have people like the Ruttans making research on strange configs and having success. Also I love the Ultralights, most of them with the "Experimental" stiker. Like the parachutes of Skydive: "Experimental" and "may cause death" stikers AND cigarretes with "may cause death" stikers TOO..."Being BORN may cause Death some time in the Future" should be atached to every newborn, then!

Don, reminds me of a joke.

The President responds "All of them, certainly none are going the other way."    ::thinking::

Sorry for the tardy responce time,  my plane was too a one off, it was called the Fawcett 120, is was designed as an all Aussie trainer, recon etcetcetc ::sleep:: plane, had a successfull career as a trainer and i believe that is all.  Originally had a 130Hp Gypsy Major 4 cly engine and in the late 80's early 90's they installed a 180 hp Lycoming 0-360 engine and revised nose cowl (if i cam find a pic of the revised look i'll post it) and then it looked like a 172 that had been punched in the nose  ;D

Cheers GB

Heee Heee, I know what it is too.... Mater of Fact I even painted one  for Flightsim this afternoon. In Baradium's Interviewers colors as well  ::rofl::

It's a Curtiss C-46 Commando... Also known as Dumbo.

Here's two shots of the one I did for Flightsim.

BTW, that aircraft is also supposedly the world's largest taildragger

I think the B-17 is a tad bigger but I think the C-46 carried a bigger load

Very good! So the Lady is remembered...Actually could lift more payload than DC-3, but never attained same notoriety. Now I would like to know what´s written on the nose, please ::whistle:: Copied from http://www.ruudleeuw.com/c-46_in_alaska.htm

DonYan ::banghead::

Almost all of Evert's C-46's have WWII Style nose art. The one in your picture is Maid of Money, they also have Maid in Japan (where they bought the airplane) The one I did the skin for in Flightsim is Salmon-Ella (named because it used to haul fish) and another one called Dumbo (with a certain elephant painted on the nose) Do a search on Airliners.net for Everts and most of their birds will show up.

Hi Brian,

Well spotted, Yeap the De havilland Drover......this particular one was named John Flynn (founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service) and flew for TAA and the RDFS this one my mates dad flew for quite a few years.!!  Drovers were built at de Havilland's Bankstown New South Wales
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: BrianGMFS on February 21, 2007, 01:26:43 AM
I must say, BrianGMFS that you impress me: it is an Aussie de Havilland Drover indeed! And the Curtiss C-46 is Maid of Money, it figures...my taste in ladies is at fault there.

Maybe (it´s a remote possibility, I know ::banghead::) this next one will be more dificult to name... ???



Nope...... It's a Piaggio P.136-L  ::rofl:: My favorite planes either have round engines, float or drag thier tails.... The Piaggio does two of em' (Taildragger and Floats)

Now I must really get to bed since I have to get up at 3:30 so I can be at wotk at 5 am. And I get to play with a DC-3 in the morning ::bow:: ::bow:: I'm bringing my camera to work ;D

"Dumbo"  was the C-46 that I climbed into.   The DC-6 was one of the un-named ones.   In fact, I think I saw that bird in Galena today.

Here's another bird I see on a regular basis.   Phil (tundra flier) can't comment as this aircraft is also based in Fairbanks.

I almost used that picture but decided to use one that wasn't from airliners.net.


There is actually more than one Carvair in Goldfinger, you can see the tails of a few others.


The information about the last Carvair being an Ansett machine may not be correct from what I gather.

Airliners.net has pictures that are supposedly of the final carvair, a BAF (British Air Ferries) unit, being scrapped.   However, the 3rd Ansett unit is still supposed to be in South America. 

I've seen pictures of a Carvair in South America being readied for flight, I don't know if it is that machine or not.    I've seen 3 different Carvairs in person.    A company in Georgia where I'm from had two of them (only one was actually kept airworthy), but the flying one crashed on takeoff around 1991 or so.   They fixed up the other one and operated it for about 10 years and just recently sold it.  I heard on the airport that it went to South America, but also later rumors that it's still in the US somewhere.    The one currently in South America could have been it, but it'd have been repainted to match the pictures I've seen now.

C-GAAH is the now US registered Carvair here in Alaska.

OK DonYan,

Here it is......

The Mighty Sipa 200 Minijet ;D French Designed and made, they only made 7 of lil' fellas,  here's a quote i found

"The SIPA 200 Minijet was a single engine jet, twin boom, two seat that was designed following a request for proposal from the SALS (a French government body in charge or reorganizing General Aviation after WWII). Its primary functions were liaison, training and aerobatics.

Powered by one Turbomeca Palas of 350 pounds of thrust, the S200 made its first flight on January 14th, 1952. With a maximum takeoff weight of 1850 pounds, its thrust to weight ratio was not very good, and its performances paled in comparison with the Morane and Fouga. Only seven prototypes of the S200 were built. Two of them remain in flightworthy condition today: one in the US, the other in France. 

The SIPA 200 was designed by Yves Gardan"

Wot fun!!!  I wouldn't mind having a go at an R/C model of this one :P

Now i'm off to find out about your new post........................

First one is definitly a Norseman, there's one still operating commercially on floats here in Alaska.  The second I'm guessing is a PA-12 or 14 Cub Cruiser.

Phil
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Gulfstream Driver on February 27, 2007, 06:41:21 PM
Excellent.  The first one is a Norseman.  The second is a Piper, but it's not a 4-place.  None of the Piper guesses are correct so far.
Title: Re: Name That ????

Second one is not a PA-18.  Think more rare.

It's a PA-11.  Basically a J-3 with an enclosed cowl instead of the eyebrows.

Ahh, didn't realize there was a difference in the jury struts.  I'll have to keep my eyes open for that.  Of course it's been so long since I've seen a stock cub of any kind.   >:(  Most here have been retrofitted with PA-18 wings and tails, extended landing gear, huge tires, bigger engines and the list goes on and on...

Phil
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Gulfstream Driver on February 27, 2007, 09:35:39 PM
Neither one of those planes are airworthy.  I think the PA-11 was taxied into a pole or something.  There's a big hole in the leading edge of the left wing, and the fabric is all crap.  If you look at the Noresman's tail, you'll see that the rudder is missing.  Both airplanes would need a complete restoration job to get flying again.  The owner has had many offers for both airplanes, but won't sell.  We figure he's waiting for us to hit one with the plow.

Too bad about the Norseman... they were built just up the road from me in Montreal. A real classic bush plane. sized right in between the beaver and the otter but predating them both. I made one for Flight Sim a few years ago. Is there any way to get inside her??? I'd love to see some shots of how the interior is laid out... I couldn't find too many references on the web.... I might have to re-build it on the computer.

Did all my flight training in a Warrior III here at UND.  Good plane, actually while I was flying it with no wind, and temp's below 32 degrees it was great.  However, warm it up, and throw a nasty CFI in the seat next to you, and that plane has an agenda for ya, usually not a good one either.

CFI = Instructor.  The Warrior is a beautiful airplane that is very forgiving.  I once stalled one out at about 10'.  Thought I'd see the struts poking through the wings after the big "WHAM!", but all was good.   ;)  Good thing I was alone.  Ever since I graduated, I've mostly been flying Cessnas.  I always savor the chance to get in a low wing when I can.

Yea, love the plane, if landed it very hard many times, as ATCr's dont get along with the air.  Almost prop struck one.  Anywho, I've always wanted to fly high wing but never had a chance to.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Gulfstream Driver on March 02, 2007, 10:30:58 PM
Looks like a high-wing Bee Gee.

The high wings aren't that special.  They're harder to land and don't offer any overhead visibility.  Personally, I'd rather have the low wing because I can put the plane in a position to see something on the ground a lot easier than I can to see something in the air above me.  Just a personal opinion.  There is a reason the 172 is the most popular trainer ever.

Yes, it was a nice plane.  Miss Ashley II came apart in the air during the `99 air races at Reno.  :'(  Pilot was the only fatality.  It was a new construction, the fuselage was built from P-51H plans, the wings and horizontal were from a Lear Jet and the Engine was a Rolls Royce Griffon, larger and more powerfull than the Merlin engine and using conter rotating props.

LOL, you know the saying: unlucky at games, lucky in love. But it is tricky to find planes that are unknown since this group is so diverse, different parts of the world, different types of aviation etc. I could send a few pictures over via email you could post that I'm pretty sure no-one knows :D

Or how about: Name That Airport using only a picture of the control-tower?

Velo: So it wasn't a Daimler I take it. Hmmm, Jaguar never did make airplanes to my knowlege and until WWII they were actually the Swallow Sidecar company (SS, which is why they changed it to Jaguar which I believe was a model-name they used once). Aston Martin is too young. Auto Union never made planes I think. I doubt it was Porsche either since that didn't exist that early as a company. I don't really think it could be from north-america since I don't think they made such planes back then but of course I'm no expert on that field so I could be wrong. How about Skoda?

Edit: I just thought of something, maybe I was tricked by the hint. I thought the company didn't make aircraft but maybe it was airplane. Is it an old Igor Sikorsky design?

Hi Velojym,

It's the lovely Zeppelin Staaken E4 (i think it's the E4) but definately a Staaken  ;D ;)

Now as for the aeroplane from FlyBoyGil that looks like a Gypsy Moth ran up the back of a Gee Bee R2 .....Stipa-Caproni !!!  Sorry, but there is a 3/4 replica flying out of toowoomba (just west of Brisbane) the lady who owns it also owns my favorite Aussie war bird a CAC Boomerang.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: spacer on March 05, 2007, 05:57:34 AM
They're pretty darned cool. They don't really fly out of ground effect. You just skim along a few feet above the ground or water.
Back in the '90s I dreamed of having one with retractable landing gear, which I could fly over a highway or the water (or... over relatively even ground too). There's a limited 'zoom' capability, where you can momentarily trade speed for altitude to clear obstacles... or that granny blocking the road...
It hasn't really gone far yet, but there is a smallish, not so active community for them. Lots of broken links and the like.
From what I understand they're very efficient, and you can move a lot of weight across the pond, using less fuel than true aircraft (for the payload)
and lots faster than ships.
I'd love to see more of the technology.

Do you get to Mexico, MO often? If the Monnett book sells at all, the publisher is interested in having similar books done on other designers. I contacted Zenith about doing a book on Chris Heintz, and they were receptive to the idea.  :) If that happens, I'll be headed down there from time to time to do interviews and go through their attic.

Wow, what a great increase in popularity and fun for this thread, and very much on topic too (not that it's crucial in this forum). It's really great to see that a lifting-body works on light GA's as well, I'd been thinking of such a design too but wasn't sure if would need fly-by-wire controls for stability since I'd prefer a design that aerodynamically stable, as opposed to the F16 for instance that according to what I've heard can't fly without constant automatic control-surface adjustments.
From the looks of that FacetMobile then it's possible to build an aircraft with a lifting-body that needs practically no conventional wings, or at most maybe some stub-wings which will probably create a lot of attention from onlookers on the ground when you fly over them :D I also heard a lifting-body fuselage shape is a lot safer in a crash as opposed to the classic tube-shape.

I see Brian just posted yet another plane. I've got no idea what it is but it does look nice and elegant.

Have all the previous planes been ID'ed yet though?

Thanks for the link to the page with the WIG's including the Colani-version, very interesting indeed and I don't think I've seen that version before now, really elegant shape, as usual for him with his organic based style :)

Ok, since its been a few days, I'll give you a hint.  This city was founded around 1931 due to a massive project to help out workers in the great depression.  The project began in 1931 and was finshed in 1936.

These probably won't be too tough, but we do have a little piece of history here at Baudette.  These are two derelicts that live just off the ramp.  Good luck.



Hiya Gulfstream,

The orange biplane was a production model, though pretty rare now. It landed at our fly-in breakfast yesterday and I made sure
to get some photos of it.
If/when anyone guesses, or everyone gives up, I can perhaps provide full resolution shots.

The pilot told me it was an old 'tween wars design called a Gulfhawk. A later version sported retractable gear, and it was supposed to be a
dive bomber.

Ok, I jumped the gun. I figured someone would be familiar enough with the design to 'fill in the blanks', but this appears to be a highly modified
Stearman... according to the registry.

OOOOOOOO nearly there  ::bow:: !!! Fully correct on why it was built "Was supposedly a fighter prototype that didn't use any materials that might become hard to get like aluminum...

When the flight team competition was hosted by I believe Lewis University, Rudy Frasca of the Frasca company hosted a small party at the Frasca airport there in IL.

We were able to wander around looking at his rather large personal collection.   There is a Swiss (I think?) fighter there that is one of just a couple in the world.  He has European tourists travel to America just to gaze on it.

He also has one of the T-6 Texans that was converted into a Japanese Zero for "Tora! Tora! Tora!" in addition to an unconverted texan, the last model number of Spitfire (has a much larger engine than the ones that saw combat), as well as a plethora of other aircraft including a few German designs (he was also in the process of building I believe a BF109 from scratch).


This of course was in addition to a large numbert of simulator and airline museum pieces.  There was also a Wasp Major radial engine (4 row!), a biplane powered by a ford inline engine (complete with radiator that had a hole in the center for the crankshaft to come through for the prop) and others.    Most of the aircraft are kept airworthy and are flown periodically.

He did have a good sized collection of rare GA aircraft as well.  There were a few not quite as rare birds, but they were all interesting.

Wish I had some good pictures from that.

That might have been the same competition when a guy with a P-51 brought his bird by for a small private airshow, he also took one of the students along with him for a ride.

That hanger, is actually number 2 of two hangers built in Tillimook.  The first one burnt down some years ago due to a hay fire.  They were used to house up at 8 blimps if i remember right, to "guard" the pacific northwest.  At one point in time, they used hanger 2 to store something like 300 planes.  There is a neat picture in the museum, with all of them arranged in the hanger.

Funny you should mention this DonYan, I was just thinking of how airships flies (pilot-controls), especially since I first flew in the pc-game Crimson Skies and thought about if such a thing would be possible, especially after I found out that Zeppeliner's etc. were actually partly hollow and not one big ballon as I'd thought until recently.

Sorry that I can't participate in the contest but I simply don't know any of these planes and I don't know many sites to search either. There are many sites with lists of cars, specifications and history but planes are a bit rarer, sadly. Airliners.net is the only one I know but they don't have such vintage planes like these.

Nope, someone mentioned it earlier.  It's a Christmas Bullet, and it was a killer.  The "designer", Dr. (yeah, right) Christmas decided that unsparred wings would make the aircraft more manuverable.  Instead, on it's initial flight, the wings came off, killing the pilot.  Here's a little write-up on the guy.

Wow, I got one! That Boeing looks big compared to 'stangs and spits, or maybe it's just the small looking pilot.

Gibbo:  |:)\ ::bow:: That looks like something Gerry Anderson would make! (tv-series: Supercar, Thunderbirds etc.)

After having the game Crimson Skies in mind and wanting to test some MSFS planes then I looked thrue and found this very interesting plane, although I'm pretty sure it's really easy to guess for you experts  |:)\

That's a P-59 with a fake wooden propeller attached to fake out espionage attempts.

Gibbo: Bingo! |:)\ I only found it earlier tonight when I found a FS2004-model of it at Simviation and then found that picture online, really wild looking plane!

Edit: Oh I never doubted it was real, I just found it interesting how much it looked like Gerry's work, although maybe it's the other way around, he was inspired from planes like this?  ::thinking::
Many planes in Crimson Skies were almost directly copies of real-life developed/planned concepts from around WWII, even some of the wilder ones, like the Warhammer with three engines, one in the middle and one on each wingtip and then the cockpit directly in front of the small tail, that was a german design by Blohm and Voss I think (also made for FS2004 btw). The Bloodhawk was also a german design (canard wing, underside tail, pusher-prop).

Got it! Airspeed AS.39 Fleet Shadower. I had been sure it was a french design but it turned out to be english (I should really brush up on my knowledge of nationality marks).

Ok, just to continue the show, here's a goodie (to guess that is, it wasn't a very good flier according to what I read, and never got certification) and that is indeed one plane (the filename was just as a joke since that's what it looks like).

It very nearly was. I believe it was the first helicopter to land on Pike's peak, and I know there's a flightsim model of it somewhere. I enjoyed flying it on my old computer, though I haven't looked for it recently.

That's the problem with alot of our firebombers. Alot of them are from WW2! There's a squadron of Avengers out East, the PBY Canso, the A-26, and of course the Mars are from that era. Not Unlike the movie Always, but I think age is going to take its toll on the aircraft and they should be replaced.

Ok, it's got 2 merlins and 2 jet engines.  I'll bet it's an AVRO design, but absolutely NO clue as to it's actual designation.

EDIT:  Looking at the stacks and the props they might be Griffons.  The Jets look like the same used in the Metor, but I'm no expert.  Tail looks to be lifted from a Lancaster or Manchester.  It's British, but not one this "Bloody Yank" has seen before!

"IMPERIAL TROOPERS"  Sorry but offense taken >:( >:(
---I will agree that George Bush may be absolutely wrong and the government policies may be totally in error and that  making changes in that policy may be slow because in a free and democratic society we have to vote to change government and it's policies.     We will vote and we will change these unpopular policies, it will take time and the really bad thing about that is innocent people get killed while we are struggling to eliminate bad leaders and bad policies--that's how a free society works.
BUT, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL I ALLOW ANYONE TO DISRESPECT THESE COURAGOUS YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAWFULLY GIVEN ORDERS OF THEIR SUPERIORS.   TO REFER TO THEM AS "IMPERIAL TROOPERS" AND THE REFERENCE TO THE KEVLAR HEADWEAR COMPARING IT TO THE NAZIS IS HIGHLY OFFENSIVE!
PLEASE DO NOT EVER CONFUSE THESE MEN AND WOMEN WITH GOVERNMENT POLICIES!
I SAW TOO MANY FRIENDS DIE WHILE MY GOVERNMENT STRUGGLED WITH WRONG POLICIES IN VIETNAM TO LET SOMEONE MAKE DENIGRATING REMARKS ABOUT THEM.
I hope you understand that my feelings on this matter are very strong because I was one of those poor bastards out in the field getting shot at while Johnson, McNamara, and other government jerks were making mistakes and the process to remove them was as slow then as it is now.

OK, from one bastard to another, I accept your apology---
It's just too bad that the world sees American people and American policies as one and the same when the average citizen sees hundreds of billions of our tax money being given away to other countries as aid money only to have them label us (the citizens) as "imperialists".   I for one would love to see the US withdraw from the position of trying to be the worlds police force
and stop most (but not all) foreign aid.  Unfortunately, with great power, comes great responsibility and our elected leaders have overstepped common sense and the mandate given them by the voters to help those in need.  There are many stories of  success due to the largess of Americans, most notably the Germans and Japanese who became economic powerhouses partly because of the Marshall plan and other good programs funded by American tax dollars.   I guess most of us are tired of having some jerk tell us we are all "imperialists" while he/she is reaping the benefits of money we are giving them for Christ's sake---kind of like giving a dollar to a bum and having him tell you to kiss his ass.
Any, you old bastard, that's enough--nothing funny here---how bout we go back to humor OR we could meet at dawn with chainsaws and entertain ourselves whilst whacking away at each other's aging carcass :D
btw--did I read you were born in 1944 and someone shot you in 1963 when you 19 years old?

THAT I find offensive as my name is Bob.  Don't worry I'll find you and hunt you down ::rambo::

just kidding  ;)

OK, all joking aside I was about to come unglued on this thread.  I'm a FIRM supporter of US troops.  My dad served in the US Navy in Vietnam (that would be in-country, not on a ship) and my grandad managed to get his Purple Heart on Okinawa (not to mention his time on Siapan and Tinian).  Uncle Jim told me about the screams he could hear coming from the USS Arizona......  I missed serving 'cause the don't want pilots that can't hear. 

I then looked at Don Yan's post a little closer, as well as Air Tac's.

Then I shut my mouth. 

My politics are simple:  Christan, Conservative, Heterosexual (any questions?).   But I also realize that opinions different from my own are acceptable.

I DO support the Iraq war for a simple reason:  it needs to be done.  That is ALL I will say on that subject.  Don't try to bait me.  If you want to prove your point, email me directly and I'll give you the download for my favorite FPS and we can settle it online ;)

For the rest, this is a humor thread.  Lets continue that.  This may have been done before, but what the hey:


"Alaska Airlines NXXXXXX Please circle for traffic seperation"

"Seattle Tower it costs $7000 to circle this airplane"

"Roger Alaska Airlines, give me $14,000 worth!"

No way, i don't hate you, the people of Australia and New Zealand are similar in many ways but also very different at the same time.  The 2 countries themsleves are vastly different, your ambassador/apprentice will tell you the same, (outback..'the Bush' ) Australia is just like you saw in Croc Dundee, New Zealand, being further south, is colder ...mmm and Greener....the most places in Australia.  All that said we have alot of "Kiwi's" ;) (New Zealanders) immigrate to Australia....soooo, yes, you are propbably right....we may be alike after all  :D :D

Hey, I posted that in the chat a few days ago, and I thought it was a DC-3 too until I read the name and it didn't mention that anywhere.

Bara: That's one scary pilot! Aren't you supposed to have a sort-of reasonable knowledge of planes to tell the speed and size of them when flying near an airport etc or does that only apply to controllers? Drivers in DK are taught to know that some cars can't accelerate as fast as others, both the car they drive and the other cars on the road, however no-one drives by that anymore but airplanes vary a lot more in size and performance so I thought it'd be required simply because it was so important.

Gibbo: Cool plane! I'm stumped too, I can't even begin to guess what part of the world it's from!

I just found a cool picture so if I may I'll post a parallel Name That Plane picture if I may.(http://www.totalnfs.net/smilies/ozbeer.gif)

Gibbo: Yes, I was looking around to find your intro-thread and didn't find it and then I found your intro-post in the 4 Questions thread and saw your picture from Google and I thought I'd take a closer look to see how Australia looks and then I found that interesting machine and after having posted something like this here now I decided to just play around instead and see if you'd recognize it, and you did, the place that is, not the plane. I've looked some more and it wasn't the one I thought it might since the VariViggen's main wings are much different as is the rest of it compared to the EZ-series so maybe it's a variation? Btw, where can you see a wind-sock? I can't.

Hi Ya Frank,

I have circled the OLD windsock, it is now just past the end of the arrow I drew (albeit badly).  Yeap I knew that view straight away, being as how I see it every Sunday  :D (except this one :( ) on my way back in to rejoin for runway 07....

That plane is actually a Velocity SE FG, don't know quite why it is parked there, I thought that was not a designated park zone, there again I may be wrong, but we will never know now because that whole area is currently being ripped up for .... ::thinking::....new parking areas,  so that would mean that it is indeed parked in the correct area....i think  ::loony:: ;D

PS I'll snap a few shots of the Velocity if I see it again...it's not out and about all that much.

Bearhawk Patrol (The 2 place version) to be exact.  It's the one I've got the plans for.  One of the other builders got a bunch of pictures at Sun 'n' Fun and was nice enough to send them to me.  Always good to have some inspiring photos to help with a large project.

What engine are you planning on using Phil?  How about avionics?

Are the performance numbers similiar to a Super Cub?

I'm planning to use the Superior XP-360 with low compression 170hp cylinders so I can burn unleaded.  But it's going to be a few years before I'm ready for an engine, so will see what's available then.  I see Rotec is making a 150hp 9 cylinder radial now, if that turns out to be a good engine it'd look and sound sweet on a Bearhawk.  8)

As for avionics, the panel is pretty small, so probably just a pretty basic VFR set-up with a VFR GPS Nav/Comm.

Take-off and Landing performance isn't quite as good as a Stupid Cub, but it cruises at 140mph compared to the cubs 90-100mph.  And it has 55 gal usable, so at economy cruise the range is 900 miles.  Gross weight and usefull loads are similar to a Cub too.

Here's the specs:  http://bearhawkpatrol.tripod.com/id1.html

Is that a reman'd Lycoming?

RE: mogas:  will you set it up so it's E85 or E100 compliant?  With some states wanting to mandate bio blends, might be something to start considering (most aviation parts are not compatitble).

Do you know what engine the prototype has?  That's a wide hp range to use and I wonder what power numbers give those specs.   An IO-360 putting out 200hp would be cool though, wouldn't it?  ;)

The XP engines are basically Lycombings, but not certified.  Click here for more info http://www.xp-360.com/

No, will just be set up for regular 87UL.  Any alcohol is very bad in aircraft. 

The performance numbers are for the prototype using a 170hp O-360 custom built by the designer, and fitted with a fixed pitch cruise prop.  I may even drop down to a 150hp O-320, they tend be a lot cheaper than an O-360.

I found an article after my post about it, although they claimed a performance (climb) prop.

The problem with the Ethynol being bad might come to light if cars end up requiring it (that's why I asked).

Just think though, with 200hp you might have the cub performance *and* higher speed together. ;)

The performance numbers with the 170 hp sound really good actually...

And one of the news letters said they'd found a different prop that offered better performance than what's published on the web site, but didn't give exact numbers.

Ethanol's not great for cars either, but since they don't typically go from sea level to 10,000+ ft in a matter of min.   Some of the problems arn't a concern.  And all modern electronically controlled engines have knock sensors that retard the timing if they sense detonation.  So the other than a little extra wear and tear on the valve train, it can't do any real damage to cars.  Just reduce the power a bit.

You can put the 200hp engine on the one you build.  ;)  I still love the idea of a radial on the it myself.

Cool picture!!  I think I've been on that airplane, too....   ;)

And that crash the FAA guy mentioned to us was with a skydiving plane, not with any smokejumpers...  even though they both have to do with parachuting, they are two very different worlds, and very far apart in a lot of ways! 

Out of our 86 or so smokejumpers, only a handful are into skydiving for fun..  the ones who are, are REALLY good at it, and recognized nationwide for their skills, but for the great majority of the group, it is just the means to get to the forest fire.   ;)

The one in the background is definitely a Cessna.  It's hard to tell, but I don't see any wing struts, so...straight legged Cardinal?

Manufacturer is correct, but it is not Cardinal...

Was going to guess you were sitting in a Beech 18, but the pics I've found of their interiors don't match.


The Cessna looks like a 172.  Definitely a "Second Generation" Cessna as it has the swept tail and is not a straight back.

Fabo, is the Bonus plane a Cessna 210 Centurion? ...::thinking:: Is the plane you are in an early Beechcraft Twin Bonanza  ::thinking::

Doesn't seem to have a long enough "turtle back" for a 210 centurion.  We had one at Alaska Flying Network, but I never flew it.  It honestly looks like a 172 or 182, hard to tell from this angle.  Might also be a 175 which was a 172 with a GO300 Continental.  Almost bought one that had been re-engined with a 220hp Franklin.  Then I heard of the Franklin's rep.

Damn I KNEW I was forgetting a twin plane!  Twin Bonanza....was on the tip of my forebrain and couldn't remember the name!
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Fabo on May 12, 2007, 03:20:53 PM
Yes it is 172... I found no suiting detailed picture, so for now I let it as 172.

and here you have bonus picture to guess from

I can give an extra hint, someone just released a FS2004 version of it on flightsim.com (I was browsing thrue the archives last night and found it, and a few others I didn't expect).
Speaking of which, Fabo could you repeat the link from the chat for FS scenery you mentioned?

G-man: Hahaha, that's a wild one, just not sure if it actually flies or not.

I heard a big aircraft very close-by just a minute ago but didn't have time to get past the moving-boxes blocking the windows to see what it was but it was big and noisy and then my mom said it was a strange plane she'd never seen before (not a helicopter) and it was very low down. From the sound it must've been a twin since even the Maule that flew over never made anywhere near that kind of big sound. Sigh, I miss so much  :'(

As for this, what I have seen is only repaint for Mike Jazz aircraft. There is an improved version of his aircraft, including much more real panel and dynamics, I will post link once identified.

The page I mentioned was www.fsclub.sk.

Yes, it is Morava indeed... but A not D :)

And second you got as well, Moravan Otrokovice Z-37-2 Cmeliak twin-seater. The exact one flying in SkyEurope colors now.

And as I said, here is a link. Download and fly :) http://www.flightsim.cz/fsitem.php?act=exe&id=530&lan=&menu= (http://www.flightsim.cz/fsitem.php?act=exe&id=530&lan=&menu=)

basic flying notes:

Vr 80-100km/h
after T/O hold airplane low level for gaining around 180km/h
Climb on prop 2600RPM - throttle 700 (can be up to 740 with full plane)
Cruise regime throttle 650, prop 2400 speed 200-230 by payload
Vapp 140-150km/h

drop gear at about 190km/h, small flaps 170km/h and slow down to 160 prior to turing finals. On finals full flaps and reduce to Vapp.

Engines are too small to be a B-50, But they don't look quite right for a B-29.... My guess would be a TU-2 Bull (Russian copy of the B-29) I can't see any markings but it does look like it has red numbers on the fueslage. Could be a 29..... ::thinking::

My first thought as well, but I don't believe any of the Lancair's ever had trailing link main gear.  And the wing/fuselage fairing at the trailing edge isn't right either.

Based on the size and straight wings I'm guessing the one in the lower left corner is a P-80, or T-33.

You're not wrong Gil  ;D It's practically the same plane but with a newer engine. I found the Scimitar first too, but even the first had a G- serial number so I checked again and found the AW16...

F-15 E , 366 SQ 391 FS based at Mountain Home airbase, ordered 1987 used in operation "Enduring freedom" etc. etc.

Can't find anything significant for this particular airplane though....

Just don't tell me it landed on your front door (ie you saw it up close) or that they even let you climb in it! I'm been researching for an hour now  ::wave::
Title: Re: Name That ????

Correct it is an F15E.  And I guess its not so much unique about this particular airplane, as the model of the airplane in general.  This was the first fighter model to be designed to drop the nuke.   ;)

The picture was in Miramar during an airshow.  A friend of mine shot it.

Actually, Both the F-100 and F-105 were used in the Tactical Nuclear bomber role in the 60's. The F-105 had an internal bomb bay for the larger H-Bombs while the F-100 carried smaller fission weapons. Not to mention the Genie Nuclear tipped air to air rockets carried by the F-89 Scorpion and F-106 in air defense squadrons.

For Vietnam, the USAF put a fuel tank in the bomb bay on the F-105 to extend the range.

True, however what I was getting at, is that this model was specifically designed to carry them.  The others were modified to carry them.

Roost: It doesn't look like any Sunderland I can find pictures of.

Mike: LOL, good question, but then again, there are many planes where you can't see the nose, but that's usually due to a very high instrument-panel, like I remember from the Cardinal flight, which is also one reason I like the Commander since it's panel seems more in proportion and with better views while still having good space for all gauges and switches.

Mike, you should take some fixed-wing lessons.  Many light GA airplanes have little or no forward visibility on landing...  including the venerable C150, C152, and C172.  In tailwheel airplanes where the PIC sits in the rear seat (like the J-3 Cub and Aeronca's Champ and Citabria) the pilot can see absolutely NOTHING forward on a three point landing due to the high nose position and the fact that there may be a passenger occupying the front seat.

The key is the PIC relies on peripheral vision during a full-stall landing.  That might be a challenge with a big flying boat, but it wouldn't be insurmountable.

Just pick a big body of water and use a glassy water landing.   It's less important in a flying boat than a wheeled aircraft IMO since you can pick a much much longer and wider "runway."

That's negative, I found that picture while looking for Fabo's nose (http://www.airliners.sk/forum/files/obrazok_2_361.jpg).
Maybe that one helps, but, to be honest, if I didn't know what it is, I'd have NO idea where to start looking.

Gilly, I believe that one is a Piaggio fighter but I do not know the model number.  How far off the mark am I?
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Rooster Cruiser on December 10, 2007, 02:36:45 PM
It is not Sikorski (if anyon was referring to my heli) but it is fairly similar. Seeing the outside of helicopter first time i was also thinking since when did Sikorskis fly for eastern armys :)

Fabo, Igor Sikorski was a very famous Russian airplane designer who built some huge aircraft for both the Tsarist (I think) and Soviet governments before he fled the country in the 1930's to escape arrest and death in Stalin's gulags.  Mr Sikorski then settled in the USA where his new company perfected the Helicopter and turned it from a dream into a practical machine.

Gilly, BTW...  I believe the Helo in the rear view mirror is a Twin Cobra helicopter and not an Apache.

I dont think it is Zlin. Both 143 and 242 that are in production now are just further development of previous 142 and 43. Hardly there would be prototype fo that sort.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Franz on December 12, 2007, 12:43:44 PM
No, it's not a Zlin, it's a Russian one . . .
Designation starts with "S-".
Maybe that one helps . . .
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Fabo on December 12, 2007, 01:40:48 PM
"S-"? Cant recall such company.

But it has to be fairly new anyway, considered the inside luxury.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Franz on December 13, 2007, 07:34:22 AM
The company is pretty well known, I'd say. Actually, I have no idea why they used S- as desigantion.
Fabo is right, this plane is a pretty recent development, it started in the 1990s.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Frank N. O. on December 13, 2007, 08:47:24 AM
Dude you picked a dusie there! I've looked thrue several archives of russian aircraft manufacturer and factories and can't find it. There's no company I can find that use S- as their designation. Almost every model from every company use part of the company name as the designation. I can only find about 7 or so russian aircraft companies that have familiar sounding names, and no one has a S- designation. Beriev have made some amphibian aircraft and Sukhoi military trainers also used as aerobatics aircraft but I'm stumped.

Ok, then I'll tell you.
I have to admit that it was pretty hard and I bet I'd given up way earlier if I had to find out.
It's a Sukhoj S-84.
I found it here (http://www.suchoj.com/ab1953/index.htm). Unfortunately this page is in German and I cannot link to the article directly, but I have holidays coming up, if anyone is interested, I might just translate it and post it here or something.

Or you can be taken and doused with beer at the same time your in the club. You also drink the beer as well. So if I ever come to Scotland, you owe me a beer dousing and strip clubbing.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

sorry airtac judging by the thick wing and the tail plane its made by Hawker and its probably a fury or a typhoon so its not a supermarine product

Not a Fury, or a Typhoon.

HMM Whatever-the-hell it is has a 24 cylinder engine and looks ugly enough to have built by Supermarine ::thinking::

UGLY?! Supermarine made the Spitfire!! That's not ugly. Them's fightin words!! Beer Bazookas at 20 feet!! The loser has to go home with a fat chick!!
This plane ain't ugly. It looks mean!! >:D >:D >:D

My most humble apologies to Supermarine, the British Empire, Her Royal Majesty, Her Royal Majesty's Royal antecedents, the House of Commons, every pilot who's ever flown a Spitfire, Winston Churchill, my bartender, my wife, my students, my dogs, the guy that delivers the newspaper, the pool guy, and anyone who cares. :'( :'( :'( :'(
Aside from the Yukon Jack, my memory is getting faulty--they say eating seafood is good for the memory but I keep forgetting to buy the damn stuff  ::loony::

I looked right at that picture and saw the resemblence to the Hurricane (a great but ugly airplane) and typed in Supermarine instead of Hawker---DUH!! ::banghead::
And by the way---ugly and mean go well together so let's not get all snivelly about looks---in spite of that, the Mustang and Spitfire are both beautiful as well as mean  |:)\ |:)\

OH and also by the way, Mr diplomat ;D---there ain't no fat chicks---just women who's beauty is proportioned differently ::)

Smitty I must admit, that is the most unusual Luscombe I have ever seen!  Military versions were all painted Olive Drab camouflage, so what the heck is this?  Thanks for the video clip, BTW.  I agree with the WAI interviewees... Aviation has lost ground to high tech in retaining the attention of young minds.  I look around the airports I go to and the only people I see under the age of 25 are lineboys or customer service.  Be durned if I know who will replace me once I retire other than a chip made in Silicon Valley.  God help the people that entrust their lives to that!   ::eek::

Hey, those pictures of my airplane aren't the best angles for an ID so I'll give you a hint or two----it was manufactured in the 1930s with a 90 HP 5 cylinder Kinner radial but this one was converted to a  120 HP 4 cylinder Phillips engine (Manufactured by Glenn L Martin Motors Co) by Dick Probert.

Dick died last month at age 101--he hadn't flown the airplane in 16 years.  We pulled it out of the barn last Monday, drained and refueled it and it started on the first blade when I propped it........

I know you'll be able to Google something out of all that info ::wave::

right i got the jet even now for the bi-plane and have a few guesses for it so here it goes is it a:
Waco GXE 10?
Davis D-1-K?
Curtiss Wright Travel Air 12-W?
Arrow Sport Pursuit ?
American Eagle A-1?
im guessing here since i cant see the shape of the tail fin in the posted pics. and all of these have radials fitted.

Frank, what in heck is that?  It appears to be two bastard children of a Bonanza/Fouga Magister cross, mating while in flight!  How incestuous!!!   ::eek::  I've never seen this one before, that is for sure.

I found it at a cool site listing experimental planes and I'm actually not sure if I should be happy or sad that no-one found it, even though Roost actually, almost, said it :D

1951 Fouga CM-88 Gemeaux

As as I could make out of the cyrillic looking text then it's powered by two Turbomeca Marbore II engines and could do 285 kph.
Not sure if it has dual-controls but it would seem logical I think.

I had just recently heard that family friend Dick Probert had passed away this May and since finding that out had decided to google him and read some more fun stuff about that amazing man.  I saw pics of the Fleet posted back in June on this site and had to share that I was lucky enough to have had Dick take me for a ride in that awesome plane and it was an experience I will never forget.  I worked for his wife Nancy, playing with the horses - my grandfather and father and family friends helped build his hanger - and I have to share that grass runway was definitely an interesting way to take off and land!  It is great to read about Dick and hear people's stories and admiration.   ;)

I guess you landed slowing down with the wheels in the water, and reached shore wet sand to taxi it up. Then the dry sand got the bird...tides did the rest.

Like we say: any landing you can walk away from uninjured, is a good landing!
-Donyan-
I answered pronto, but no book, no Alan on the web, no answer so far...I asked if it was a B-25, but later I noticed the base of a wing float near the wing tip. PBY Catalinas had the wing mounted on a pilon, and I am not shure if the ruder tip has another twin under the sand: it's prety well beated up and bended.

Maybe someone knows pilot Alan Richard on this forum: incredible comments...but no bird name!!! ¿What's it?

Welcome back TM, nice to hear from you, and nice entry! Is that really a complete plane? I don't see the cockpit anywhere. Some bits and pieces seem a bit more modern than the design-type would seem to indicate but maybe that's because they had to be replaced due to wear and tear?

Yes, it is a complete plane... not a good picture, sorry. Note the smaller version/model next to it... it has a model pilot in it which shows where the seat is. This airplane was indeed home made in the 1920s by a high school student and it barely flew... or actually I should say hardly flew... (how's that for some hints?). This is a replica constructed from descriptions from the original builder, who went on design some other airplanes that flew much better than this one.

The designer didn't become as famous as them, though if a couple of things had worked out differently, he may well have ended up in your list.  :)

Next hint: He designed two different airplanes with the same name (named after a cartoon character dog) about 20 year apart... that drove people nuts and to this day people will ask "Which one?" when discussing them.

Well, I'm just a confused duck, and some people say I'm just confused.  ::silly::

That aside....

The cartoon dog reference was to Wittman's later race aircraft, Bonzo. They were separated by over a decade, and were completely different, but he gave them both the same name, after a cartoon dog. The chief thing was a reference to his first race aircraft, Chief Oshkosh, which won many a race in the 1930s before being reconfigured as yet another racer, Buster. This airplane now sits in the National Air and Space Museum.

While doing research at the EAA archives this last summer, I found a letter that cracked me up. Buster was donated to the Smithsonian (now the NASM) in the 1950s. There was a brewery in Oshkosh at the time that made "Chief Oshkosh Beer." The company sent Wittman a nice letter when the airplane was selected for the museum, and said complementary things about how much it meant to have the airplane next to the Spirit of St. Louis, that it called attention to how good of a pilot Steve was, etc. etc. Then a couple of paragraphs down the letter more or less said "By the way... wouldn't it be more accurate to change the name of the airplane back to Chief Oshkosh, and wouldn't this reflect better on the city?" Gee, not to mention call attention to their product!

I passed this along to an acquaintance at the NASM, and he more or less said, tongue in cheek (I hope) that if it happened today the museum would change the name back after they got the airplane (regardless of the wishes of the donor) and then hit up the company for a sponsorship!  ::rofl::

Turbo, you have to understand government contracts.
The goal is to acquire the money from the government, not produce something useful.

Many of these one of a kind airplanes were how we learned what worked and what did not.
They did not have the understanding or computer modeling.
Just look how long it took to understand that fling faster than the speed of sound required different aircraft design.  NOT just more power.

Look at the wing designs in WWII.  The only way that those airplanes flew was stacking up enough radial engines to provide more power.

Oddball, NICE choice.

OK then so does those two comments mean i have you all stumped? so guesses yet?
 
But look at the British designs especially the Supermaine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and the North American Mustang (build to a British design specification for use in the Battle of Britain). classic lines long wings for lift and designed to fight at altitude, OK except for the first Mustangs with the puny Alison engine (sorry to say that hope it wont get me banned).

Note the Side by Side seating for the pilot and copilot <GRIN> Twin Canopy.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/9e/Douglas_XB-42A.jpg/800px-Douglas_XB-42A.jpg)

This was designed and built during World War II by Douglas without government financing.
Goal was to deliver a bomber 2,000 miles with a whopping 2,000 pound payload.

The counter rotating propellers could drive this beast 400 MPH.

Only two were produced and the original model was turned over to the National Air and Space Museum.

The first protype stayed pristine with nothing hanging from the wings.

This picture is the XB-42A (second prototype) where jet engines were mounted on the wings to test them.

Oddball, Good choice of history.

Indeed, it is the second prototype Bennett PL11 Airtruck, an intersting assemblage of ex - RNZAF T6 parts and a fertile imagination. Built just down the road from me at Te Kuiti, New Zealand. Quite a clever machine in many ways, but man, is it ugly! the designer later went to Australia and produced the Transavia PL12 Airtruk (note different spelling) which had the same basic layout. So... anyone note anything about the registration?

My plane was made by a German company making railway cars since 1883 and has been producing aircraft during first and second World War.

High Franz, Hello Everybody,

now, having that hint it's easy for me, as I had some interests in railway-technology in earlier times... long ago... 'bout twenty years...

Taddaaaah: for sure it's a Gotha GO 150!

Nice aircraft, FAI world record in July 1939 (hey, that's right 70 years ago...) for altitude: 8048m (about 26400 ft) one seated.

Greetings

Apparently, there are still some aircrafts that only one model of the type was build, operated by food company, and than after two manufacturer takeovers - retrofitted for military... which lost interest in it. And aircraft didn't managed to survive the war. Just like the [this part was censored by the Gentleman's challenge committee] FlyboyGil posted.

C'mon Oddball it's not that hard, there are still some markings on the wings left  ;)

Oddball is taking his time I see.

Oh well, it's Wiener-Neustädter-Flugzeugwerke (WNF) 11, registration PH + IB. Only one was build, it started in 1933 as Hopfner HV 11, and was used by Dr. Oetker food company under the registration A-141, later in 1935 when Thomas Hopfner company was taken over by Hirtenberg it stared to be modified for the use of military, the project ended in 1938 - the year Austria joined German Reich, also the year Hirtenberg/Hopfner company was taken over by WNF. Single prototype with stronger BMW engines was delivered to Luftwaffe for testing. It didn't survived the war.

Yes, yes, and yes. Even Cessna agreed. In the book I saw yesterday, it said the higher-ups did not only want to not produce it, but they wanted it destroyed right away. They stripped the engines and anything else that was useful and let a dozer at the scrapyard flatten it.

I'm surprised no one has jumped on this yet. I think I've actually flown in one of these if it's a Schweizer 2-33.

Okay, I finally clicked on the picture to look at the larger shot. The round tail told me it's not a 2-33, so I looked farther. I think it's a 2-22.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: croatian judge on October 31, 2009, 02:53:13 AM
Yup, It's a 2-22, and really the only difference that I can tell between it and a 2-33 is the tail. This one is a former Air Cadet glider (hence the paint). It was actually destroyed in a hurricane in nova scotia of all places :(. Currently being restored but has a great registration=>C-FACE

I have actually heard of these before this post. Way before 9/11, they still cost over $100k dollars, and went about as slow as a Cherokee. It's basically a fixed-wing helicopter.

The first one would be a Funk, I have no idea about the second one

He got mine correct. If there are any other model designations, I don't know of them.

Sorry Fearless Leader I wont reveal my sources  ::whistle:: But you left some clues that helped me track it down. like the Stars and Bars on the rear and the USAF on the tail.

What do you mean that I'm an aero nut? Just cause I have the remains of a Cessna Bobcat sittin my parents backyard, and engine for it on the driveway, airplane tires and parts in the basement, doesn't mean I'm an aircraft nut. It means....... well OK I am an aircraft nut. AIRPLANES ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't let Mom see that pic... she's probably flown that exact plane....

The plane in question is a converted Beech 18 (Why would they mess with near perfection?) Volpar did a few mods like tri gear (I don't mind that mod) single tail from a C-90 (Why?) fuselage stretch and turboprops (Just buy a Beech C-99)

That looks to be a stretch Volpar on straight floats and the C-90 tail. And they said the C-99 was what happened when you threw all the various King Air/Queen air/ Beech 18 parts into a box and shook it...

Well done indeed, it is indeed a Genesis 2 from what I found on Airliners.net. That's also how I'd like my dream plane designed, cockpit in the front, and slightly forward sweeping mid-mounted wings behind the cockpit canopy to give maximum visibility. Of course my dreamplane would be a 2-seater (side by side) and be powered and slightly longer.

A shame about the jet (thanks for the pm), at least the pilot survived :)

Nice paint job pity he got the "Badger Stripes" wrong and did not put any on the fusalage.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Ragwing on March 18, 2010, 12:12:43 PM
Badger Stripes?  Oddball, is that the current name?
These are backwards and do not appear to be proportional to the aircraft.

Invasion stripes were alternating white and black bands painted on the fuselages and wings of World War II Allied aircraft, for the purpose of increased recognition by friendly forces.  The first use was for the Normandy Landings. The ground crews had only a few hours notice and were frantically painting their aircraft.

The bands, consisting of three white and two black bands, wrapped around the rear of an aircraft fuselage just in front of the empennage and from front to back around both the upper and lower surfaces of the wings.

On single-engined aircraft each stripe was to be 18 inches (460 mm) wide, placed 6 inches (150 mm) inboard of the roundels on the wings and 18 inches (460 mm) forward of the leading edge of the tailplane on the fuselage. National markings and serial number were not to be obliterated.

On twin-engined aircraft the stripes were 24 inches (610 mm) wide, placed 24 inches (610 mm) outboard of the engine nacelles on the wings, and 18 inches (460 mm) forward of the leading edge of the tailplane around the fuselage.

Blame Gibbo for the name "Badger Stripes" Ragwing. We got talking about something a while back and the name for the invasion stripes came up.  And a intresting fact is that they first appeared on aircraft taking part in the Dieppe raids supporting the Canadian Division but on the nose instead of the rear fuselage Flypast did a recent aritcle about "Invasion Stripes".   Also R.A.F Mustang II's (P-51B's with Malcom Hoods) got "Bounced" by Me(Bf) 109's a few days later over Caen painted in R.A.F markings and "Invasion Stripes" with the wing tips painted black to make them seem blunt like a Mustang instead of rounded. back on topic no joy YET on the pic but will keep on looking.

Just for the record,this plane is from Tayeset (squadron) 101 of the IAF,also known as "Hakrav Harishona",means "the first fighting".
The Avia s-199 hebrew name is "Sakin",means "knife". They were the first planes of Tayeset 101, and their first action was in 29th May 1948 when for Avia s-199 attacked an egyptian column in Ashdod.
The plane in the picture is located in the IAF museum in Hatzerim,and there was attempts to bring it into a flying state in "Cyclone" factory,but there was no spare parts available.

I saw it on FB the other day (Alex posted it), it is cool.....now I know what the questions about "wrapping" were about.....

Do the courses and technically you have to do 8 hours of hands on training, and then a pack test. That is it.

Of course you do need a sponsor to get the card...kinda like pilot carding, you cannot just apply for one. Luckily the forest here is going to "hire me" as an "AD firefighter" and issue me a red card....

That, of course, is absolutely correct.
Although it looks kinda like a Me 109 it was built more or less from scratch to break the speed record at that time for popagenda reasons. When it did, it was reported to the FIA as "Me 109 R", because the Me 109 had to be the world's fastest aircraft . . .
And then there was a Me 209 V5, which had nothing to do with the Me 209 V1 - V4, but was intended as a replacement for the Me 109. It shared the name to give the impression that it was just an improved version, not a completely new design, in order to get it's construction approved.

And I guess that's enough of a history lesson for today . . .

It's either a DC-1 or a DC-2. the only way to tell is by looking at a inside shot of the cockpit since the DC3 had a different lay out from the earlier versions.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Fabo on June 23, 2011, 08:36:27 PM
The angle is quite fishy... hiding them under the wings...

hint: one subtle but noticeable difference with VIIa is for example gear strut. here you can see it starting pretty thick right by the wheel, on F-VIIa it was thin at the wheel, then it got thick midway, and thin again by the wing.

Also reading back, "it is not quite dutch..." is not the best choice of wording.

Looks somewhat Ryan ST-ish, am I in the right direction?
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Jupiter on July 26, 2011, 01:10:54 PM
nope, this one doesn't have the wing bracing of the Ryan. The era is correct though...
hints: there's only 1 ever built of this aircraft, has been outfitted with 2 different engines, the strongest of which was weaker than the ryan's weakest engine
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Fabo on July 26, 2011, 03:51:59 PM
I figured it was a prototype or somthing, hence no bracers.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Oddball on July 30, 2011, 04:53:24 PM
by the look of it it's from around 1920 to late 1930's and there all ready was a clue earlier when talking about the Ryan made PT's.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Jupiter on August 11, 2011, 09:07:36 AM
IT was one hell of a hard thing I guess, since the guy who designed this one only designed one other aircraft.
So, all the hints together, with some extra ones...
- aircraft from the '30s
- only 1 built, been fitted with 2 different engines
- tandem 2-seat trainer, built for a dutch student organisation
Well, if it hasn't been found by tomorrow, I guess I should post the answer
And no, it isn't a PWS 40
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Jupiter on August 12, 2011, 01:40:39 PM
OK, as promised, here's the answer:
The aircraft is the Lambach HL I PH-DSA "Prinses Juliana", designed by Hugo Lambach for the Delft Student Aeroclub in 1935.

Try this one then, should be easy...

Registration is appropriate too  ::whistle::

Apparently there are quite a few of the type... http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?aircraftsearch=Murphy%20Renegade%20Spirit&distinct_entry=true

OK, let's try this one, taken at my local field 3 weeks ago... just before its first flight after having spent 18 years in parts in wooden boxes.

Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: FlyboyGil on August 21, 2011, 05:43:46 PM
This is the type here
EFW C-3605

The C-3605 was a turboprop conversion of the C-3603 fighter-bomber of which 144 had been built between 1942 and 1944. The conversion prototype flew for the first time on August 19, 1968 and in total 23 C-3605 conversions were completed by late 1972.

The conversion needed a 7 ft (2.13 m) extention to the nose to balance the aircraft as the 555 lb (252 kg) mass of the 1,100 shp Lycoming turboprop was about half the weight of the original 1,020 hp Hispano-Suiza 12-cylinder V-engine.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Kilrah on August 21, 2011, 06:25:31 PM
Perfect!

And yes it does fly pretty well. The low pass over the runway at 275kt definitely put things straight... I need to edit that video.
That nose really is a bit too long...

AFAIK there are only 2 of the type in flying condition. A third one, still the piston-engined C-3603 is close to it but was left untouched for a few years now, so would need some work.

It's a Fairchild 91.

"The gun had a false sight at eye level so that the Ca 20's pilot could aim through the propeller arc at the enemy aircraft while the gun fired from above."

The Royal Aircraft Factory S.E 5a had the top mounted Lewis gun on a slide so it could be brought down in front of the pilot to be fired and re-loaded.  So this gun could be fired by Bowden cable since it looks like its in a fixed position.

Ok, here's one fresh from the sea! Sorry if the picture isn't too good but I'm not that skilled with camera settings. This should seriously give you experts a challenge >:D
I'll only stretch myself to saying it's considerably older than me (I'm 34 now).

No takers? Really? Ok, I'll narrow the info down. It's from WW2 and it was the first plane in production with at least one feature that was new at the time.
The engines have an aluminium block and heads with 4 valves per cylinder and fuel injection directly into the combustion chamber (normal gasoline fuel injection systems are in the manifold with only some the newest cars using a direct-injection system).

Hehe, where would the fun be in that? Besides, the premier danish aircraft archeologist recognized this from an amateur diver's picture of the oleo strut. Keyword: twin-wheels!

Here's a picture of one of the propellers with one of the V12's in the background and one of the remote-controller canons. Another canon was already cleaned and looks like new and still works with only original parts! German engineering at it's best and WD40 by the bucketloads + time works miracles.
I also included a picture of the yet uncleaned ejectorseat with it's plastic-coated wires (and pieces of a trawl-net).

 ::rofl:: oh I just knew someone would ask about that, and of course it would be you  ;D
They're used to show uniforms since the Aalborg Defence- and Garrison Museum has everything related to the military going back several centuries although focusing on the 19th and early/mid 20th century. The Navy museum btw is just a stone throw away, and on the other side of the river is the Aalborg Airforce Base (with an F-104 gateguard I sadly couldn't photograph this time around) and the Aalborg Military base.

Here's the link to the museum in english: http://www.forsvarsmuseum.dk/eng/information.html (http://www.forsvarsmuseum.dk/eng/information.html)

Btw, the airplanes behind the displays in the pictures are: F-84G KR-A, F-86D AL-E and CF-104 R-851 (with the engine displayed next to it). There's also a T-33 hanging overhead together with a glider of some kind, and a RF-35 Draken outside next to tons of tanks and other heavy vehicles.

It a Heinkel He-219 Uhu (owl) night fighter one of the first to have ejector seats.
Title: Re: Name That ????
Post by: Frank N. O. on September 27, 2012, 12:49:51 AM
I knew I shouldn't have posted the ejector seat, that was a dead giveaway wasn't it? ::rofl:: He also said it was the first with a pressurised cockpit.
 
Yes it's an owl, but not just any owl, it's an owl that doesn't exist! When they found it they contacted the germans and they insist it doesn't exist because they've got a register of every plane wether it was taken by the americans afterr WWII, shot down or crashed, and nothing is listed as having been near here. The wreckage had no bullet holes so it wasn't shot down, and the props are bent like it made a belly landing, but the engine block is cracked. They examined the tyres and found out they'd only ever landed twice but it's the plane or just the tyres that were new is anybody's guess. Another interesting detail is that there was no ammo onboard, and it wasn't painted in the normal two-tone camo paint as the one in USA, it was in desert-camo which makes it even more strange it's way up here. Sadly the tail is gone and so far they haven't been able to find any other ID markings although he hopes there's something when they clean up the cockpit.

Think the Supermarine Spitfire and the Vickers Wellington beat it by some margin there Frank. There should be makers marks on it some where like on the engine block or on the inside of the Fuselage some where. It will either be a plate bit like a VIN plate or a stamp.

And now <insert evil grin here> it's my turn. Got a few I've recently found so will post them later on.

I'm impressed, it's a KA-32AB11C, very similar to the KA-27 though. One of 3 we operate in Canada.
