What Winged Womat said except for the left-most aircraft in your goofle-earth shot. The shadow suggests it has a T-tail so it cannot be a Comet. The problem is airliners aren't my home ground so I don't know of the top of my head what it is - chances are it is missing the engines though.


EDIT: Waynos, the location of your mystery plane was so so so so predictible. Here it is closer up. Mind you, Duxford (arguably the leading aviation museum in UK) seems devoid of the usual line-up in the satalite image - I remember when a B-52 and Concorde were on the tarmac. Has Duxford gone to the dogs????

Quite right !

Ahhhh I see it all now - including the F-15 just out of the original shot.

1. BAC 111
2. Trident

The pictures themselves are not particularly current. I downloaded google earth and looked at the place I used to live - and I was home !!!! (I have a distinctively coloured ex-ambulance F100). It was also taken on a weekend (no cars at the nearby schools). So the shot is at least 12 months old and not more than 5 years old.

Note the orange 'blob'

Yes, the BAC One Eleven is the first airliner not he second one and yes, its engines are in place, its unusual to see such slender cowlings these days.

The one that eluded you was the FMA Pucara outside the hangar.

Planeman- all the other airfields I tried seemed to be in low res areas
so I used this one as I already had it. The photo of Toulouse airport in Paris is exceptionally clear as you can read the registration on the wing of a DC-10! Why can't it all be like that?

I find most of my bases using Scramble's lat-long coords: www.scramble.nl... -it's in their Order Of Battle sections which they have for most air arms -just below the header for each base.

Yes Waynos,

The thought that the aircraft outside the hangar might be a Pucara had crossed my mind, and the apparent height of the wing above the ground should have given it away really.

emile,

Sorry, I didn't notice your email for a while, and for some reason I'm not able to send replies at the moment using that account.

I don't recognise the project you questioned, but I'd look at Lockheed projects concerning this one

No, emile, I don't think it's an Albatros - the fin shape is all wrong.

Can you give me the link where you found pictures 2 and 7 ?

How's your Spanish, Waynos?

Have you ever seen a Viggen that fin tail can be put down in photos? If you have that photo, could u show it to me?



posted on Sep, 28 2006 @ 08:24 AM

Here you are emile,




I think all Viggens are able to hinge their fins, they are just not often photographed that way

That's great! Photos showing Viggen like this must be attractive very much!
Waynos must be kidnaped by terroristor, may be he can leran Arabic from them but Spainish, when he come back, he can read some articals about Iran aircraft....

You cheeky bugger emile


I've not been to this board for a while and I thought this thread was dead, seems not so I'll keep coming back.

My Spanish is non existant by the way


Could the unidentified biplanes both be versions of the Breguet XIV or XIX?
