A Super Hornet, now, are you going to put me out of my misery or what?

1, Boeing F/A-18 Hornet


Yep.



2, B-1B Lancer

Nup. Notice the contrails are very far apart which indicates engines spaced apart.



3, T-28 Trojan (a bit unsure here)

Yep.


4, Very early P-51 Mustang, possibly P-51A

Yep.

Third P-51 Mustang?

And fourth a P-40?

More more more!. Do you think we now have enough new members around to restart the aircraft picture quiz?

Wow...This thread got a great response...who would of though that some blurry picture taken at an airshow could actually generate some discussion.

The tail-end of your second aircraft is bugging me.... The B-1's stabs are placed a little higher on the vertical stab than the picture.... It doesn't fit the S-3's profile.... and it just screams "airliner" at me with that high-gloss finish that military aircraft avoid like the plague (though it could be a show-bird of some sort).

The tail has a reasonably close match to the RB-66.... but I don't think any of those are still being flown - anywhere.

It's a closer match to the B-47, with a longer and sleeker tail section - though I don't know of any of those being flown in restored/historical status.

Otherwise - that tail configuration doesn't seem to appear on many subsonic aircraft. It is present on the F-104 and many other supersonic designs.

On that note - I was just doing some research into supersonic wing/control surface design and ran across a gem of an article - will follow up on it in another thread that it pertains to.

Glossy finish,eh ?

Could this be part of a Blue Angels picture....... A-4 Skyhawks, perhaps... which would infer smoke rather than contrail(s).

I should have guessed..... the one that was giving me a problem was a Russian aircraft, as I was assuming all of them to be of US origin (as all the others were). The wash visible also reminded me of something that would come off of a prop, and not a jet....

Oh well, good show!

I'm going to say it's a goose with rhumatoid arthritis!

Or perhaps an emu using a hand glider!!!
