1. Beagle M.218X
2. Flettner Fl 184
3. Scaled Composites 202 Boomerang
4. Convair 990 Coronado
5. Williams V-Jet II (also Scaled Composite designed and built)
6. Heinkel He 119
7. Folland Gnat F.1

and emile - I think waynos might have got some of the others from that same website as well....

ar----! How stupid I am!
:bnghd: :bnghd:
I just need to click the picture then know this! :bnghd:
Theseday I just study Hawker series, maybe too study to be fool.
Well, let me make some trouble back to Waynos.
Waynos:
I got a book published by Chinese. In which mentioned a British ex-plane called peoject AW-56 belong to Armstrong-Whitworth, is a flying-wing bomber, I wonder are there any other bombers are similar to Avro Vulcan?

If you go back through this thread to the beginning I used to post pictures from that site all the time but people got wise and backtracked for the answers


I just thought I'd give it another go for old times sake plus the fact they were nice new pictures


Emile; do you mean flying wing types exclusively or all Vulcan rivals?

There is a picture of the first AW 56 proposal on this link www.strange-mecha.com...

The design later evolved a radar nose and blister canopy like the Vulcan and Valiant before it was rejected..

Talking of flying wings, Handley Page also proposed this airliner below which was comparable in many ways with the Boeing and Airbus BWB designs from recent years;

Hoho:
Waynos, your post is always surprising to me, it looks very very bigger than B-2 sprite bomber. Maybe American are more actualistic than British, but British are more imageful than America, so I suggest British are responsible for design whereas Ameria are responsible for produce, then there were more greater products would be created.

Wombat:
So many pictrues reminds me of you has given me a wonderful cutaway. One of my friend askme for a clear cutaway of He-111. Could you give some help?

North American P-82 Twin Mustang

Lippisch P.13

Leduc O-22

A UCAV from Boeing ?

Pass, but it doesn't look authentic to me, maybe a general theoretical design?

Ooh, ramjets.

So, they work by forward motion forcing air in, right? Which gives the possibility of endless acceleration, if you have the fuel supply, yes or no?

My understanding is that they are like superchargers, their practical applications are few because in order to make power, you have to take a little away (unlike a turbo) and that they are just too thirsty.

But they did give someone the idea for scramjets...

Fine that means I can post more easily identified pictures

Emile, - Check your email.


Howlrunner, I think the main problem with ramjets (and scramjets) is that they don't work at slow speed. No speed, no compression, no engine cycle. Don't kid yourself - turbo-charging is not free power - it is taking power from the exhaust.

I have got an email you sent to me with quite clear cutaway, I can flount it to my friends again, last one is that P.108
Thanks again.

One of your post is taken from here: www.aerospaceweb.org... isn't it ?

Then I saw a attacker design which is next generation after Su-25 Frogfoot but has never flown even never been built.
The last one is an plane of supersonic bomber Sukhoi T-4?

You two are really good at post some picture to make quizz. This time could you post some picture but the viewsight should be behand of the aircraft or just show a tail like this


or just show undercarrier? Don't forget post some hard_difficult ones
By the way Do you think that 1000aircraftphotos.com... has already included 99% or 100% aircraft of all the world? How many aircrafts did this web lost? Does any other websites rival this web?

Oh, no emile, even 1000aircraftphotos has a long long way to go yet - I think they maybe have about 6000 different aircraft represented - at a guess, I'd say maybe 60,000 might be getting close to good coverage of all marks and models.

www.aerofiles.com is good for US built aircraft.

www.avia.russian.ee is good for helicopters (All the world's rotorcraft)

AXLs Plane Gallery has over 12,000 pictures but represents less that 800 different aircraft types. Pretty good automatic recognition quiz though.

F-18? F-20?

So many question break out:
Marster, could you two tell me whether the Novi Avion has been completed by design?Or even the design has never been completed?
Please noute your book don't use web, because I ha ve read [url=www.answers.com...]this web[/url], but so  many conflict in it.

Not F-18 or F-20 emile, It is the North American X-10 unmanned aircraft which was tested as part of the SM-64 Navajo strategic missile program. By the tail numbers, it was the first of thirteen examples built.

As far as I know the Novi Avion was not built - I think they got into a bit of a civil war before anything got done about building it.

Polikarpov I16 Chato? That is, if I16 and Chato are the correct designations. The one that went to Spain to fight the Condor Legion for the Republicans.

WW, there's nothing free about a turbo, plant your foot, wait for exhaust gas pressure to build up, the turbine spins under pressure, forced induction begins...wheeeee!

But there's no cost until you spin the turbine, and then you are not taking power from the engine.

Superchargers take their power from the crank, so you add load to the engine before you even go anywhere. And unlike a turbo, you have to manually disengage the thing. And, boy, can they be thirsty...However, pushrods prefer a blower over a turbo, over-head cams like turbos more than blowers...and combat aircraft tend to prefer blowers because you don't want that second or so of lag before you get kicked in the pants.

And then Whittle and Ohayn come along and some Yank invents reheat and pilots are back to lag, but only the time it takes to "push the button, max".

On the subject of ramjets...didn't the vehicle you pictured have RATO to get it to speed?

I'm not sure which picture you're referring to, but if it's the Leduc O.22, then it actually had an Atar turbojet at the centre of the ramjet, which allowed the aircraft to take off under it's own power. As with so many other projects around the world, the funding tap got turned off before they actually got to light up the ramjet, although it did fly on the power of the turbojet a number of times.

I would suppose that the upper limit of ramjet performance would be governed by the ability to contain the pressure in the tube (structural strength) and the volatility of the fuel (you still need to burn it rather than detonate it)

That plane is Ki-27 just painted star as Soviet AF.

Then here is a difficult one for Wombat and Waynos:


Who has more infor. about that Yugo. mini- Rafale?

I don't appear to have any information on the Yugoslav 'Novi Avion'

The Photo --- Heinkel He 176

The earlier ones look to be...

Breda Ba 201 & Latecoere 302
