Hi Ya Fabo,

I'll play your game :)  ::thinking:: Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15,  i think  ::thinking:: the type was S-102 or maybe an S-103 and  NATO knew it as a "Fagot" (GULP!!) ::drinking::  ::sulk:: There again it could be a 17 sims are so hard to tell from...in my opinion  ;)

That said,  I do have to agree the the esteemed DonYan ::wave:: and Baradium ask for real photos. ::whistle::

Cheers mate :D


Now for something different.

I will want you to say manufacturer, plane type (number) and plane type (1-several characters). NATO/OTAN code name would be nice!

See you!  ::wave:: |:)\

Relatively certain that is a Republic F-84F Thunderstreak.  A swept wing version of the F-84 Thunderjet.
The average pilot, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

"Thuds" are the Republic F-105 Thunderchief.  Got a couple good books about their use in Vietnam..."Thud Ridge" and "Pax Six"

Wow, this is both entertaining and educational at the same time! Edutainment, aviation-style  |:)\ 8)

The Bellanca actually looks like a more classic Bellanca now that I think about, but this latest one is really out there! Good find!

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!
