Not the Mistral Waynos, but your observations are spot on...

The aircraft in question is TG276, an F.I (observe the canopy) fitted with a Nene in 1946. In 1949 it went to Boulton Paul who were contracted to test the bifurcated inlet duct and intakes for the Hawker N.7/46 (ultimately Sea Hawk). Finally the aircraft was fitted with F.3 tail units in 1950. Additionally, in 1946 the aircraft had been tested with "elephant ears" supplementary intakes.

Well done Waynos.

By the way, where are you in (presumably) Australia, Jezza ?

Here's a couple of newer ones.

Hmmm, never seen either of those before. Is it significant that the top one reminds me a great deal of the Fletcher FU-24? The bottom one looks like a re-engined version of something else, the name of which escapes me.

And yes both correct.

Waynos this thread alone is awesome, the knowledge of each person
put into this forum is excellent and in turn the collective knowledge is
brilliant.

Hey Guy, some of those pics were absolute buggars
but, IMHO word games are even harder!

I used to be an 'All Arms Recognition Instructor' and we concentrated mainly on AFVs, rotary and fixed wing ac.
I also used things like 'Word Search' and cryptic clues to maintain interest and improve name retention.

Here are a couple of easy ones to start you off but remember, I am only after the NATO reporting name of the aircraft (fixed or rotary wing) or their civilian (marketing) name. Big clue/hint. They are not all necessarily military ac.

1. Now you see it, now you don't; - Now correctly identified by the Wombat
2. Happy, but mythical superman;
3. Often heard outside a brothel;
4. A man of enterprise;
5. An illuminated jumper;
6. '50s superman? Perhaps, but worlds apart;
7. An artist's plaster cast aside?;
8. Sleek racer in the green;
9. Shakespearian quote;
10.'Creighton! Fetch my tank!'

They are so easy - if you think laterally!

Yes Jezza, Wodonga at the moment, but have lived in Melbourne, Sydney, Darwin, Alice Springs, Launceston, Perth and Adelaide at some time.

Fritz, I'm not sure where we're going here, but I'll have a go...

1. Phantom

5. Hoplite
6. Blackhawk

9. B-2 Spirit (Not 2B)

And a man of enterprise could perhaps be either a Fitter or a Farmer, I guess.

My friend you have just one right.

Try to think laterally.

Good god they've scrambled my brain!

I don't know if I'm thinking the right way here, but is no.1 the Tu 22 Blinder?

Ah Waynos. Nice try, but that's wrong!

The Winged Wombat got that one right.

Anybody else got any clues?

Go on!

Give 'em a go!

You know you want to!

They're not that hard - are they?

Last one is a dead giveaway!

Here's the answers as I guess they were a little too hard for you.

1. Now you see it, now you don't = F4 Phantom
2. Happy, but mythical superman = Jolly Green Giant
3. Often heard outside a brothel = Hormone
4. A man of 'enterprise' = Vulcan
5. An illuminated jumper = Harrier
6. '50s superman? Perhaps, but worlds apart = Atlas
7. An artist's plaster cast aside? = Fresco
8. Sleek racer in the green = Jaguar
9. Shakespearian quote = Warrior ICFV (Henry V)
10.'Creighton! Fetch my tank! = M1A1 Abrams

5, 9 and 10 make no sense to me, I'm afraid. Could you explain them? For inbstance how do you get Harrier from Illuminated? the Jumper bit is obvious.

Ironically, I figured the 'enterprise' clue was something to do with Star Trek but never made the leap to Vulcan.

Here's some back at ya, they might be obvious.

1, Geoffreys snake bite

2, cheat in the sky, don't play Pool with him.

3, aquatic repose

4 The storm lord?

5 Maybe a team of brave churchman?
