Dead simple really.

US Civil War. General Creighton Abrams = M1A1.

Shakespearian quote. 'Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!' - Henry V the last true and great English 'Warrior' king.

An illuminated jumper - not so easy unless you remember an exercise 'dog fight' a US Marine Colonel had with a couple of 'red force' fighters, he could not shake off. He suddenly had an idea! What would happen if he suddenly reversed the forward thrust vector of his Harrier? 'Viffing' was invented. The colonel 'jumped' behind the aggressors and 'illuminated' their ac with his radar and got two target locks which resulted in 2 'kills'

Your riddles are way too hard. are they ac or vehicles?

Compared to the explanations you've just given me mine are akin to me just writing out the names

They are all fixed wing aircraft of various nationalities and each clue directly translates (at least phonetically) to the aircrafts name. They're really easy, but aren't they all when you already know the answers

You tols us the answer to one so here is the answer to one of mine;

maybe a team of brave churchmen? = Vickers Valiant. Gerrit?

Oh dear, this isn't going to catch on is it. I think we'd better go back to the pictures, but in the next set there will be an added difficulty. All will be revealed;

However, for the record, here is the way my mind was working;

1, Geoffreys snake bite = De Havilland Venom

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

3, aquatic repose = Fishbed

4 The storm lord? = Thunderchief

5 Maybe a team of brave churchman? = Vickers Valiant.

Right, does anyone agree that this may be a way to revitalise the quiz? (Obscure types should always be shown in full or or at least be centred on their single miost identifiable feature)

the first one >> The J-10

the last one >> The Rafale (or Eurofighter ?)

2. Fairey Gannet

3. Antonov An-225

4. British Aerospace EAP

Can't really say I'm totally in favour of this type of format as 'obscure' becomes something in the eye of the beholder - what's easy for some is just impossible for others.

But one thing does spring to mind.... once the answers are in, the poster has to put up pictures of the complete aircraft.

Yes, they are the J-10, An-225 and Fairey Gannet. The last one was the RB 199 powered Typhoon prototype.

If we aren't using partial pics its fair enough, just have to keep looing for more new piccies

Yes, I went on the engines on the last one, even though the missile placement looked wrong to me.

I thought so, it was obvious that you had actually looked at the picture but stealth spy had a wild guess, hell, it was even an afterthought!

No offence Stealth Spy but you did think it was Rafale mainly

1. PZL M-15 Belphagor
2. Breguet 941
3. Moynet M-360 Jupiter
4. OK, you got me with this one !
5. Mitusbishi MU-2

By the way, have you ever heard the saying ....

There are four things in aviation that are absolutely useless..
1. Sky above you
2. Runway behind you
3. Fuel left in the bowser
4. Helicopters!

Fairey Barracuda
OKB-1 Type 140BR Russian version of the Junkers 297
Vickers Type 633 Viscount

It looks no one has been visiting this thread for a long time!

Hmmm, tough selection emile

I recognise a Turbo Dakota (there have been a few so I can't tell exactly which one) and a French Junkers Ju-52 ( or maybe Spanish CASA 352 version going by the He 111 in the background) minus its rudder.

edit, I thought the Junkers was a separate picture from the helicopter, oops
