Doesn't this apply to you ?

End of discussion. Now on with the quiz please.

Nor does?

Photos or it didn't happen

And by photos, given the nature of the site I would suppose means evidence/documentation/definitions/verification rather than opinion/conjecture/delusion?

Not in this instance...
Although all wings are flexible to an extent... aerolastic?...well that's a different subject altogether!

I just remembered reading something about the B-47s wings flexing more than expected on landing or takeoff (can't remember which) so threw a wild guess out there lol.

They all had downward firing ejection seats.

That is it..... well spotted.

Not very good for low level or landing/ take off incidents. About as much use as ash-trays and air-conditioning on motorbikes and ejection seats on helicopters......

But wait!!....

For improved pilot survivability the Ka-50 is fitted with a NPP Zvezda (transl. Star) K-37-800 ejection seat, which is a rare feature for a helicopter. Before the rocket in the ejection seat deploys, the rotor blades are blown away by explosive charges in the rotor disc and the canopy is jettisoned

There is an external difference when parked. Heh.


I know that some of the 135s had winglets, but I don't know if the Q had them.

And IMHO, the prettiest bird to ever fly was the F-86.
The airport/drop zone I grew up at had a hanger owned by Bob Davis, he kept his sukhoi acrobatic plane there. Beauty with a radial, and insanely maneuverable. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

I was thinking the longest runway in Europe-allegedly.Hence the reason it was chosen as an emergency Space Shuttle landing site.It's runway is 10,000 feet long and was even longer than Heathrow until they extended their parallel runways.
