what should you do?

It's a Navaho X-10, experimental cruise platform for the planned SM-64 Navaho cruise missiles back in the 50's. That one pictured in 17 first flew 10/14/1953 at Edwards, had at least 3 flights. Held the record at Mach 2.05 for a short time. Now stored at USAFM. Remote controlled, very fast at the time. Couldn't land properly, alot were lost when they veered off the runway.

Nr. 4 - Convair B-46
Nr. 5 - Short Shetland (not Sunderland)

It has also third page...

Nr. 17 - North American X-10
Nr. 18 - Lippisch P-1
Nr. 19 - Myasischev M-4 modified to carry soviet space shuttle (1
Nr. 20 - Tupolev Tu-123 reconnaissance UAV
Nr. 21 - Pika Jindivik (Flown to eveluate aerodynamics and operating systems. Flown in service from 1950 to 1954. It was the smallest jet aircraft in the world at that time. Developed and made by GAF Australia.)

(1 - for this role was later built Antonov An-225 Mrija. By the way, soviet shuttles are not called Buran. It is only the first production machine. Second was Pitchka, third Bajkal and the names of fourth and fifth were never assigned.

This is the VM-T Atlant from what I can see.

The smaller is a Tupolev M-141 'Striji' recce drone, taken at Khodynka Field (the larger was known as a 'Jastreb'). I went to this museum last year - the museum was all but closed and everything is in a bit of a sorry state. The old airfield / museum area is being built upon, and the rumour was the aircraft were to be scrapped! Very sad.

I think I have seen the advert you're talking about - it features a Eurofighter / Typhoon - which does reasonably resemble the MiG in that picture (canards, low central intake)

you are probably right, does it then say "you dont have to be a pilot, to fly in the r.a.f"?? or summin rubbish like that?

edit: the plane i am tlaking about is the euro fighter, and someone else i know thinks it oculd be that

Spy,

Sadly enough it is the best RAF ad in many years.

the top one of the last two was the loser in the competition for the A-10 warthog. I don't know who makes it, but I do remember that it was one of the competitors for the ground attack aircraft contract being offered at the time. Or an early proto for what became the A-10


You are right! It's a Northrop YA-9 which was the loser of the AX competition. The AX was won by the YA-10, which is now the A-10 Warthog!

Ghost,

I have to say that I always preferred the look of the A-9.

Just a matter of preference I guess

Cheers

No ram-jet intakes in the wing roots. I thought the same thing. Also, didn't the Navaho not have any other power source, other than the booster rocket that it sat on (like the space shuttle?) I was not aware of a navaho being used three times. For the most part, when the cruise missile portion separated from the booster portion....ka-boom. Then, when the cruise missile portion went into a steep dive to start the ram-jets....it just kept on diving, right into the Atlantic. I know of three vehicles that separated successfully, started the ram-jets, and flew to South America and returned to land on the skid strip at Canaveral AFS. 1 actually landed (which caused great jubilation and martini drinking) and the other two FBed. (fireballed).

I had heard that a couple did quite a bit better than mach 2.

Still do not think that is a Navaho either. Navaho had skids and not wheels. Perhaps pic #17 is a Regulus for the Navy?

It's on Edwards AFB official website.

Switch,

It is not photoshopped and it is not a transonic B2. It is an atmospheric anomaly.
