2, wrong, a bit devious this one.

3, no - see above

So, Thats the Myasischev Bounder identified, the other three still to go.

2. A Spitfire captured by the Germans and fitted with a Daimler Benz engine. (said to be better than either a Merlin powered Spit or a 109)

3. Douglas F5D-1 Skylancer

4. Canadair CP-107 Argus

score 1 for howlrunner with the Bronco, Jezza scores with the Bristol 170.

also, not a bad description of number 3 by howlrunner, but its the name we want. (hint)

number 4 is quite obscure, but its no Fairey.

I see, leaving the harder ones for me again?

No. 3 - North American YF-93A

No. 4 - Potez 75

Clue - If it is a really ugly looking aircraft, start searching amongst the French ones - I reckon 8 out of every 10 ugly aircraft has to be French (and the rest are Brit)

Ooh, how dare spread that slander, not the bit about French planes, thats true.


Need I say correct, twice?

That third aircraft looks like a North American T - 2 Buckeye. THat I might not be right about though.

Slander, Sir....

Now I acknowledge that beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, but....

Let's see if we can identify these "beauties"

1.


2.


3.


4.


5.


Only joking Waynos, every country has their share of aircraft about which the reaction would have to be "what were they thinking ????"

1, Handley Page HP 46 - British and ugly

Damn, just seen your edit. I was all set to answer those in a sarcastic fashion too


As for the rest, you've defeated me with a few of those, however here are some guesses;

1, never seen before but it looks like it could be from Bloch, or Amiot?

2, never seen this either, a wild stab in the darkl for its origin could be, er, Breguet??

3, Ah, this I know, the SE 2410 Grognard - delightful name.

6, The SE-116 Voltigeur, actually, like the Barracuda, I like this.


There's no accounting for taste.

Taste...Hmmmm... definitely the escargot section of the menu....

1. is the Liore et Olivier LeO.208

2. is the Breguet 413

and I must say it was much easier to find a French selection that a British one

OK, here's one that might need a little research....

Firstly I need Name and Mark...pretty straightforward....

But, there are three other things about this aircraft that make it 'different', or non-standard, what are they...




Enjoy

Okay, so it's a De Havilland Vampire, that just about exhausts my knowledge, other than seeing one flying around the GP a few years ago (more like 13). Unless it was the special Sea Vampire that they tried out on the special landing deck built for gear-up landings (someone had been smoking something they shouldn't!).

Or are you referring to the very strange looking nose on the Lanc in the background?

Unless of course it's that bloody Saab that always got me into trouble, only with a jet instead of a prop!

Yes, it is a Vampire, but not the F.20 (oh hell I forgot to lower the gear, oh, bugger it I'll land on the carrier anyway, prototype).

That bloody SAAB (J-21A) did eventually get a jet (J-21R).

That Lanc is interesting, isn't it. The two aircraft are not related other than possibly where the picture was taken... kinda smells of all kinds of strange development things doesn't it ?

If you hadn't removed the Vampire's serial number I'd have told you inh a flash


The only thing that strikes me from the picture at first is that it appears to vave an F.1 canopy and and FB.5 tail and air intakes than belong on a Hawker Sea Hawk.

Er, is it the prototype for the Nene engined Mistral for France? Modified from De Havillands own Nene engined Vampire F.2.
