The first one is still mysterious to me but from the picture I can tell you these things about it:
1) Its a pusher obviously! That is -it makes a hell of a lot of noise and moves some thing close to a pregnant yak in dogfight.
Noise is caused by the fact that pusher prop has to chop through air of different velocities at different locations of prop disc, turbulence, exhaust
and the heat produced due to friction and firing those guns also causes havoc to the air flow. Another factor is that the heavy drag due to the bulky
engine casing [Man that is bulky!I'd say more than 1000hp each atleast Are their people inside that casing?]
Control problem are caused due to the lack of propeller wash over the main manifold and the tail section to give it adequate lift at low speeds[like
take off and high banking] and also I could say that the plane could stall more in tight banks and in steep climbs than a regular tractor!
2) From its wing config it looks to be a long range bomber or interceptor or something for long range!Oh and another thing it was a failed
I can tell you this much but not the name
Somebody tell me the name!! PLEASEEEE!
It is a Bell Airacuda YFM
