Alrighty, I'm still looking up Franz's plane, but in the meantime, see if you can name this one. I know it will fool you!!

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

Franz, I think it looks somewhat like F-29(?) Retaliator, main character of popular PC game...

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.

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 ::)

Well, I gotta admit that the Merlin engine IS what made the Mustang one of the greatest fighters of it's time and Frank Whittle led the Allies in jet engine design |:)\

I really feel that the Spitfire wing is beautiful and the same can be said about my all time favorite fighter of that era--the P-47 Thunderbolt ::bow:: |:)\
