I seem to have stumbled upon a pic of a yak-38 sitting on the deck of the USS Bonhomme Richard. Anyone know what the circumstances around this was? I am unable to upload, but will happily send to someone who can

How to upload pictures.

Make sure you don't have an ad blocker(that's against T&C too) on, and the images are small enough.

It's not a Yak-38. It almost looks like an I-270 but I'm not positive. I put a message out to my buddy that knows the older Russian stuff a lot better than me.

Thanks, it’s a weird location for it, whatever it is. Hopefully someone knows the story behind it. reply to: Zaphod58

Aero L-29 Delfin www.airliners.net...


Cruise Missile Pretenders
June 29, 2010: An American amphibious ship, the USS Bonhomme Richard, has left California carrying two 1960s Czech jet trainers on its flight deck. These L-29s are 3.2 ton aircraft, rebuilt with American engines. The two L-29s will be used to simulate air-launched cruise missiles attacking American ships. While the original L-29s had a top speed of 655 kilometers an hour, the rebuilt ones with more powerful. J-60 engines, can moves as fast as 800 kilometers an hour..

Thanks Moebius. That is interesting, seems like there could have been a domestic solution to that training scenario. I saw that and it jumped out at me, and my mind immediately jumped to the Yak, because they were VTOLs flown of small decks. a reply to: moebius

The picture was taken in June of 2010. They were on the way to Hawaii for RIMPAC around the time it was taken. It was easier to get them there that way.

Makes sense. Im an old Marine, the Navy used to lug me around on a LHA. Never had anything that interesting aboard, unfortunately. Thanks for figuring this out. I wish there was more to it. a reply to: Zaphod58

Also this is a very cool picture. Sorry for the slight derailment but I am curious.

The LCS is taking on fuel from the LHD. Unless it's a supply ship it's almost always larger to smaller in an UNREP.

That particular aircraft was used in the 2014 movie Red Sky. It appears that it may have been filming or getting ready to film when this picture was shot.

It is a cool pic, all the way around. I always liked the look of the America Class, as well as the LCSs

Wow thank you so much for finding that out the film looks so bad that I must watch it.

French Top Gun anyone?



While in an international fair of exhibition of airplanes, a French Mirage 2000 of the last generation vanishes and pilots Antoine "Walk'n" Marchelli and Sebastian "Fahrenheit" Vallois are assigned to locate the plane that is flying in a hiding position below a commercial airplane. The pilots order the Mirage to return to the base, but the Mirage attacks Fahrenheit instead, and Walk'n immediately shots the Mirage saving his partner. However, the evidences are forged by the leader of a force called "Special Missions" and Walk'n is falsely accused of not following the orders and discharged from the air force. Blacklisted in the commercial flight companies, Walk'n and Fahrenheit are pressed to join the Special Missions team, where they disclose betrayals in a net of espionage.
