Let's See...

1. Sikorsky S-61F
2. Bit of a guess here, but the wing and windscreen look Miles and the engine looks RR, so I'll say Miles M.24 Master Fighter.
3. Hughes XV-9A "Hot Cycle"
4. Hiller Ten99

So close wombat! Good logical thinking on the Miles, it is the prototype 'Miles RR', later nemed Kestrel, from the 1938 Jane's. This trainer prototype led to the Master so thats a powerful bit of deduction there.

All the rest are also spot on, as usual

While it's no surprise that aircraft from a particular company seem to have a certain similarity, I find it odd that aircraft design over the years seems to have taken on a sort of national similarity - in that Russian aircraft seem to have a particular character, British aircraft look 'British', French aircraft are.... well, French, etc. Perhaps I imagine this.

Sometimes even the photographic style tends to give away the nationality. Strange that this should be so.

I'm not at all sure how you can categorise this. Aircraft recognition is a very 'photographic' matter. A description just doesn't seem to work. For the last couple of years I've been attempting to classifiy aircraft by their features to enable me to search pictures, but in the end it still comes back to looking at the images.

I don't think you've imagined that at all, I feel exactly the same way.

emile, those images are definitely fake, or at least show fake planes. They may be real photos of something mocked up on the ground, maybe for a movie prop, but they are not real aircraft. Here is the source for those images. As you can see the fact that they both wear the same camouflage makes the job of the faker that much easier.

This is a genuine F-84 Thunderstreak of the Belgian AF;

Here is a genuine Mirage from the same owners.

compare them with the pics you posted and you can see how they have been cobbled together.

Why do you think they are real?

I was right about them emile, except for the 'movie prop' bit.

After a little digging I have discovered that they were mocked up airfield decoys made from obsolete airframes, so real photos of fake planes it is.

here's the text;

After the operational career of the Belgian machines was over, several aircraft were converted into non-airworthy decoys resembling the F-84F's successor : the Mirage. The conversion consisted in removing the horizontal tail surfaces, modifying the wing surface into a delta shape and adding fake fuselage side inlets and a tapered nose. Undoubtedly, this looked quite convincingly from the air, but viewed from close range at ground level the crude work becomes apparent. It is worthy of note that some decoys even received fake Mirage serials.

So you see they are nothing to get excited about, just airfield junk.

Doctor Waynos and Marster Wombat :
Would you two collect pictures of US AF aircraft carry Standard missile as much as you can to post here for me?

posted on Feb, 9 2006 @ 11:41 AM
Not me emile, I don't really categorise aircraft by their load. However a Google Images seach for AGM-78 produces a few results.

I'm afraid I don't particularly understand what it is you're asking for. If you go to the search page you could type in any aircraft name you want and get pages of photographs, all of very high quality too. They don't just do airliners of course, thats just the name of the site.

Let's run a helicopter

That's enough to cause doctors busy I think

OK emile....

1. AAC Penetrator
2. Avia B.135 / Av 135
3. Kamov Ka-35
4. Sukhoi Su-7 (first usage of Su-7)
5. Sukhoi Su-25 (probably the naval version by the paint job)
6. Antonov An-225
7. Ansaldo AC.2

Second set...

1. This is a Flettner built in the USA in 1930 (unsure if this is the same Flettner as the German Helicopter pioneer, but I think so)
2. Union Rotorplane

Both of these aircraft were built to experiment with the Magnus Effect of a rotating barrel creating lift

Very impressiver Wombat. I confess I only knew three of those. Maybe I'll have to rethink the ones I decided not to post because they were 'too hard' ?

Is there anything wrong with this wingtip?
I thought that wingtip should be up not down.
