2. Predator

4. F-15 with one of the thrust vectoring nozzles photoshoped in I guess... or is it the su-27 ll-ps nozzle... cause I've seen it on the acecombat f-15 active... but never in the pictures of it online.

Sorry, no banana on either front. Your answer to 2 is not a million miles off but look at a pictureof a predator again to spot the obvious difference.

Alenia Sky-X, yes of course.
4. Not a Mig :shk:
5. Correct, the Mig-17 SN experimental model.

Ooh, well if no 4 is not Tristrans Su-27 (which I thought it was) or my MiG 29 (second best guess) I'm snookered. That doesn't happen very often

Can't have been that tough, you got them all right. Maybe this one is tougher by Waynos' standards:

:shk:

Yup, almost impossible to identify that RAF Jaguar in winter camouflage
But honestly, I like that sort of challenge, we're running out of obscure planes to show I fear. But a tiny segment of an obscure plane would be just too cruel!

I knew you'd get that.

1. Another easy one:

The last one was hardest, F-111, Gloster Javelin and Vulcan B.2, it took me a while to even register that number 3 was a plane at all!

Bloody hell mate, how on earth did you get the third one????? It was a joke, so I've been totally outclassed. Come back with your own just to see how pathetic my skills are in comparison.

Have a bash at these;

Those first three were excellent, Planeman, because I would have gone with the obvious and said Hornet, Gripen and Eagle.

Ooh, I hate you Waynos. I know that last picture. I can see it in my head, but that's not helping me because all I can think about is how I know that picture!

edit: What's the RAF exec transport, the something something 25? Am I thinking of the right thing? I don't believe I've ever seen a photo of it, but number is some kind of Lear-type and Waynos other three are all military so...

1. Fairy Delta 2
2. ? Wyvern with single prop?
3. BAE 125
4. Westland Whirlwind

PS. In checking whether there was a wyvern with a single prop, I came across this interesting pic: www.fleetairarmoa.org...

I think you'll find number 2 is the Piper Enforcer (Mustang with a turboprop)

You've got them all between you with Wombat getting the Enforcer.

Was anybody fooled into thinking the last one was a single engined plane, even for a second?

Is that a Gloster Meteor listed as belonging to the RN? When did they navalise them? I thought the whole point of the Vampire and Sea Venom was to give the RN a carrier-capable jet because the Meteor wasn't.

They did use them, but you are right that they weren't on carriers:

From www.gatwick-aviation-museum.co.uk...

"In Royal Naval service the Meteor T.7's were not embarked upon carriers. In the late 1940's and early 1950's the Fleet Air Arm was receiving an increasing number of jet aircraft. An aircraft was needed to provide conversion for the pilots of propeller driven aircraft to the new jets. The meteor T.7 fulfilled this and secondary roles until phased out of service in the early 1970's."

"728 squadron (1955-67), 759 squadron (1962-64) and station flights LM (1956-65), FRU (1967-71)"
