I thought I was being funny. Does the vertical stab fold?

It's how you change the antenna on the top of the tail as well as the rudder when the whole thing has to come off.

We had to change the antenna on all four of the ECs we had, so when they were laid over we walked out on the tail.

What is this? This is the only one left.
ETA The one in the foreground. Another ETA - It might have something to do with Sweden. The third ETA - It might have something to do with Germany.

What is different about the external tank on this P-47, and why did the US do it?

The aircraft in the foreground of the pic is quite an unusual combo. It's a Junkers Ju86 built by Sweden. The unusual part is that this model (SAAB B-3) was powered by a pair of British Bristol Mercury engines, more usually seen on the Bristol Blenheim and Gloster Gladiator.

Correct on the id. I think the one I took a picture of was built in Germany, but Sweden did license produce some of them.

Ok,this is about as trivial as trivia gets.

Which VERY important part of every flight inventory did American Airlines leave out in a desperate bid to save weight? They reckoned that this would save them as much as $4000 ever year.

You da man JIMC!!!! One olive was left out of each salad on every flight,which apparantly was easier to do than banning over weight people from flying with them.

It's an urban legend. I've heard it was Southwest, Eastern and American Airlines that did it. The funny thing is that it was a United stewardess that told me about it back in the late 80's.
