emile these are getting pretty esoteric !

Hey, nothing wrong with those wingtips! As they say - "It is the exception that proves the rule"


1. Looks a lot like one of the Caproni Ca 310 series (somewhere between Ca 310 and Ca 316) difficult to tell from this angle.

2. CANT Z 506

3. Looks like a garden variety Bell 206, but considering the background, I'd say Agusta-Bell AB 206

Howlrunner.... Usually to get killed in an aircraft, you have to get airborne - I don't think there was a problem with this one! Actually Magnus Theory does work - you just need far too much power to turn the barrels fast enough to generate sufficient lift - what the gyroscopic effects might be is anyone's guess (but not good I suspect). But I'm with you, my reaction would be - "go find yourself another test pilot"

Waynos · Wombat:
Since I learnt aircraft I guessd the series number of US fighter should be consecutive, but I still lost a lot of them listed below:


Could u tell me what about these series nembers? Are they really existant and built by which company? If they existed, would you post some pictures of them here, or give me links?

So many question out of me!

Who could tell me whether the horizontal tail on Mcdonal F3H-1 Demon is All-moving plane or has a flap on it with picture to prove? Why so few picture of this fighter in internet?

Hi emile...

Republic XF-91 Thunderceptor (mixed power inverse taper flying surfaces)
North American YF-93 (Sabre variant with lateral intakes)
North American F-95 (Original designation for F-86D Sabre)
Lockheed YF-96A (Original designation for YF-84F Thunderstreak)
Lockheed YF-97A (Original designation for F-94C Starfire)
Hughes F-98 Falcon (Became GAR-1)
Boeing F-99 Bomarc (Became IM-99)

Initially the US numbered air to air and surface to air missiles as "fighters" and surface to surface missiles as "bombers".

Yes, the McDonnell Demon did have all moving horizontal tail surfaces.

Most of these should come up on Google Images by putting in the designations or check out .

Why I never saw you post any topics in Aircraft Project of this website?

I guess it's because I've not gone to that part of the website.

1. Grumman F4F Wildcat
2. Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress

I have to disagree with the second one. Flying Fortress's undercarrier has two struts but the photo showed only one

what about third one?

The top one is a Sukhoi Fitter of the VG SU-17/20/22 variety.

The lower one is too hard, I'll have to think. Are the words 'Sepecat Jaguar' a clue?

posted on Feb, 15 2006 @ 08:57 AM
For some reason that third picture wasn't showing when I sent that.

I'll still say B-17. Those retraction struts are in line with the main oleo so are hidden in the photo. Perhaps it's this shot......

Yes, you've nailed it wombat. I was sure we were right, lol.

This begs the question; does emile actually not know the answers when he is asking us? We could tell him anything

posted on Feb, 15 2006 @ 06:29 PM
Well, one thing is for sure - emile is not cropping the pictures.

In our China we say "能者多劳" which "means an able man should do more".
Since you two are too strong under this post, so knowledgable at aircraft, why should I to be exhausting?

Sounds fair emile, it keeps us on our toes.

Yeah, keep em coming emile.

PS I know you are learning better english all the time so did you understand my little joke when answering the Jaguar picture?

Do you have picture of Martin B-26B-10?

Not sure about the designation for the background, but the one in front is a T-33. It was a two seat, modification to the P-80/F-80 Shooting Star. Good fun to watch them fly. In fact, IIRC, that particular aircraft was based here at Hickam at one time.

Who can tell me what is different from variety serial number of B-26B-10 to -50? I search by google but some main web was blocked by our government so couldn't open it.

posted on Feb, 18 2006 @ 06:07 AM
The -10 etc is used for improvements made in the design. I don't know the exact differences, but there were changes made to the flaps, to the overall wingspan, and I believe the weapons loads.

Here you go Emile.....

In order to reduce the alarming rate of Stateside training accidents, a decision was made to increase the wing area in order to lower the wing loading, reducing the takeoff and landing speeds. The new wing was first introduced on the B-26C production block at Omaha, and did not appear on the B-26B line at Baltimore until the introduction of the B-26B-10-MA production block, which first appeared in January of 1943. The wing span increased from 65 to 71 feet and area increased from 602 to 658 square feet. A taller fin and rudder was introduced to maintain stability with the larger wing, increasing overall height from 19 feet 10 inches to 21 feet 6 inches.

However, the advantages of the reduced wing loading were partially offset by an increase in gross weight to 38,200 pounds as the result of the fitting of additional armament. A total of twelve 0.50-inch machine guns were now carried. These comprised a flexible 0.50-inch nose gun with 270 rounds, a single fixed gun on the starboard side of the nose with 200 rounds, two "package" guns on each side of the fuselage below the cockpit with 200-250 rpg, two 0.50-inch guns in the rear dorsal turret, two 0.50-inch guns in the beam, and two 0.50 inch guns in the tail. Nevertheless, at a takeoff weight of 36,000 pounds, the takeoff run was reduced from 3150 to 2850 feet. However, the larger wing area resulted in a decrease in maximum speed from from 289 to 282 mph.

The B-26B-15-MA differed only in having the fixed oxygen system Type A-9 regulator deleted. Improved IFF equipment (SCR-595A) was also fitted.

On the B-26B-20-MA and later blocks, the hand-held twin tail guns were replaced by a power-operated Martin-Bell M6 turret, also with two 0.50-inch guns with 400 rpg. The guns were positioned below the gunner and afforded a wider field of fire. The blunt tail cone of this installation markedly altered the contours of the rear fuselage. The guns were operated by a remotely-controlled linkage, but gunners usually preferred to swing the guns manually. Provisions were made for two more 250-US gallon tanks in the aft bomb bay, bringing total fuel capacity to 1964 US gallons. Another noticeable external change was the use of a shorter-chord rudder.

An external curved armor plate was introduced on the B-26B-30-MA, along with additinal armor in certain critical locations.

The carburetor alcohol de-icing system was deleted on the B-26B-35-MA.

The B-26B-40-MA introduced a torpedo-firing switch on the pilot's control column. Shark-nosed ailerons were fitted in 42-43310 onward.

B-26B-45-MA indroduced a ring-and-bead sight for the package guns IFF SCR-695 was provided and the new SCR-522 VHF command radio set was added. The engine fire extinguisher was reinstated. The aft bomb bay was sealed shut from this variant onward, the extra space being used for additional ammunition. The fixed forward-firing 0.50-inch gun was deleted in the middle of the production run (from 42-95979).

The B-26B-50-MA was equipped with an emergency mechanial bomb bay closing arrangement. IFF gear was revised. Lycoming propeller blades began to be fittef from 42-95942 onward.
