Well I guess it's my turn.
This is a real airplane, and I intentionally left the tail number, because it doesn't show up anywhere.

YES! that specific plane was bought by the Israeli Airforce as a light observation plane, after a terrorist flew into Israel in an hang-glider.

Pretty cool, but how often would they be winded out? I don't imagine that could take much.

Now I've gotta dig up something to post...

Wow, and to think there are still weird and rare planes out there, and they still get guessed by the super-team here! ::bow:: (Scrapheap challenge LOL, that was a funny show, too bad I lost The Discovery Channel years ago).

Fabo: Not bad, never seen that one before, although mine would have a blended lifting body with twin engines behind or next to the cockpit and possibly a YF-23-style split tail.

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.



Sorry to hijack the thread.

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.
