The last one looks like a Russian DC3.

That has to be the funniest thing I have ever seen.

If it actually ever flew then it would have to be called the bumblebee ie shouldnt be able to fly but does.

One flight which ended in a semi controlled water landing when the usecured ballast shifted on takeoff.

Yes, the Caproni Ca-60, a sort of 'not quite flying' Spanish Galleon

No 5 isn't the Russian DC-3 either, its a corking good choice for a quiz I reckon.

Veltro, correct. I was looking for Canadair Argonaut but North Star will do as its the same thing

I knew it was one of the two by the odd cowlings for the Merlins.

Did that Caproni include Shuffleboard and skeet shooting off the promenade?

As for #5, looks like someone kitbashed a Boeing 247 and a Douglas DC-2 model kit and added a different nose, odd engines and two blade props.
Looks like European ID on the wing though, of course with your #5's who knows.

i have absolutely NO idea about planes i am sorry.

Yes, fellow Caproni fans, step up to claim your prize!

Oh NO!! I am sorry, no prizes, but you did great. I was disappointed to hear that number five was not the Russian DC3. Ya gotta love Caproni though, as they built their planes BIG.

As we all seem to have moved on I will reveal the identity of the last no 5. Interesting how many of you clung on to the idea that it was a Russian type rather than anythng else'

You also all missed the clue in my last post

5 = Yakovlev Yak-16 'Cork'

As for pernemlins pics, the ones I seem to be in time for are, I think;

3 = IAR 99 Soim

4 = FMA IAe 27 Pulqui 1 (designed by Dewoitine)

I figured I have another go.

Hope they aren't too easy.

1 Lockheed XF-90

2 Bell XP-77

....I'll be back.

posted on Feb, 21 2005 @ 02:14 PM
You didnt read that off the nose did you?
I just saw the xf90 had the name on the nose and edited it.

Well the bottom one has to be another one of the Carponi flying estate block series surely.

Also one seems to be a hybrid peacemaker and nose section of C-130 test aircraft

posted on Feb, 21 2005 @ 02:39 PM
Waynos got the first two.

James Blonde is right, it is a Convair XC-99. A really big cargo version of the already huge B-36 Peacemaker.

The last one is not a Caproni.

posted on Feb, 21 2005 @ 02:48 PM
Well if its not a caproni then the only other manufacturer I can guess at is the Russian Ilya Mouromets although I dont think they made seaplanes. Sikorsky did at one stage but if they made anything thing that big.

#3 Looks like a 2 seat version of the Hughes racer with a P-47 engine. I would guess that it is a post war a/c though despite the archaic looking undercarriage

Boo! I wanted to get the XC-99 but my e-bay deadline was calling
Observers Book of Aircraft 1949 and Aircraft Today 1956, Magic!

About the last one, I really have no idea though it looks like a Cant or SIAI Marchetti type but it seems too big.

posted on Feb, 21 2005 @ 03:24 PM
#5 is not a flying boat.

So. #'s 3 and 5 remain.

Actually I think I have seen the bottom pic before. I cant remember the designation but I think it is a Tupolev.

Number five is a Kalinin K7.

giant six engine plane
