Not enough!!!


Depends on your point of view.

20 minutes?


Of course the specific case would depend on which base in France and how much formation time, the number I heard was 10 minutes.

Nice one. Just I case it's been overlooked, there is an unanswered question up the page too.

Plus the 707 question, and the clues. Tex Bowie? Tex Crockett?

Sounds about right.

What very distinct characteristic was demonstrated by the prototype of the Bloch 150 fighter in 1936?

Only one I can think of is Tex Johnston, but can't think of an Alamo link to Johnston.

Not sure on this one, are you talking about the French Atlantique?

Nope, Avro Atlantic. None of the three flew (though VC7 came closest), but they have a linking theme.

I don't recall ever seeing a Bloch plane.

Something like

All metal skin, low wing monoplane, enclosed cockpit, retractable landing gear, pressurized cockpit, or maybe a V tail.

It had everything bar the last two and was very modern, in a P-36 type way, but this characteristic was behavioural, not physical. The Designer, Marcel Bloch, later became Marcel Dassault and his subsequent aircraft used that name instead.

The French made good airframes but never had a good engine. Same as the Americans. The Rolls-Royse Merlin engine made the Mustang.

I'm afraid I've no idea on the B-58 question.

I'd like to add one more to our open questions (before I forget it) answers to mine will be given tomorrow if they're not guessed.

Many aircraft become known by nicknames given to them by their crews or adversaries, some of which become widely known. What British aircraft were known by the following nicknames?

Harmonious Dragmaster
Groundgripper
Tonka
Wooden Wonder

Was the Wooden Wonder the Mosquito?

What maneuver does a low flying Fighter have to execute in order to deliver a nuclear warhead?

The B-58 ECM pod had a risk of electrocuting the crew. There may have been electric arcs in the cockpit.
