Shouldn't it have been "If it's blue it's British, if it's shiny it's American, if it's terrifiyingly unstable... it's ours."  ::rofl::

That only works if they have them.  By that point in the war we weren't painting planes (US) to save time/money and the German's didn't have any in the skies.

since it seems i cant compete here with planes, im going to compete with towers.  This should be a fairly easy one to start with.  They will get harder soon...

Alrighty then.... Avro Lincoln, the Aussie Air force used them right upto the early 60's, mainly the longer nosed versions shown below.  We had one crash just south of where i live in 1955 ,I visited the crash site a few years ago...it's kind of a memorial now
