High emile, I'm sure those two were answered, but its a long thread and I'm not going to look so I will just tell you that the helo is a Westland
Belvedere (originally called Bristol 192) and the bomber is a Piaggio 108.
As for getting the answers, well speaking for myself, I do generally know them but occasionally if I think I know it but am not sure I might use
google to confirm it, but as there is no clue in the URL of the photo as to its ID you do have to already know what you think it is in the first place
or you will never find the answer so its not really cheating.
For example, say AJSR posts a photo of a D.520 fighter. I know it is French, from WW2, and I have a suspicion that it is a MS 406. Of course I
wouldn't think that but bear with me.
I google for MS 406 and see a picture of a clearly different plane.
I have not cheated as i still don't know what it is and I have nothing else to go on so I have to admit defeat.
If I get lucky and I chance across the correct plane I will admit it, see above when I did just this. Otherwise I just knew the answer.
