So forgive me if this should go in the grey area or werever, but I figured it get the most interest here.

Something alittle fun, a break from all those darn conspiracies. Identify the type of aircraft in the posted picture. The person who gets it right than posts their own. I love these type of things.

So, to get started, here ya go:

BTW, its the small plane, not the big one








Good luck! Shouldn't be too difficult. I'll give a hint if I need to.

Is that not the worlds smallest piloted aircraft .. not sure of the name of it but ive seen it attached to a top of a jeep and it also seen it take off from a jeep.

I think also as part of a record did it not fly through a large transporter plane ?

Not sure about that, but its definitely the worlds smallest twin.

You out there JJ? You have aroused my interest!


MODS - Please leave this thread on here. There is surely room for a single 'fun' thread to keep us amused when things are generally quiet.

I once had an 'aircraft picture quiz' thread on here which ran for a couple of years and over 100 pages, until a mod decided BTS was the best place for it and once there it just died. The plane nuts were all on here you see!

OK? Pretty please?

Haha, sorry it took so long to reply, some of us have to sleep and work lol!

Yup, its my fav. tiny twin, the Cri Cri! (Means Cricket in French, Colomban named it after his daughters nickname). I have seen it on top of a jeep/land rover but I didn't hear of it flying through a transport plane.

According to guiness(world records, not the beer lol) , its not technically the worlds smallest, this is!



So Rebel was the first to get it right. So he can post one now.
I posted an easy one just to get started, but the obscurer the better, even if its post WW1!

Next aircraft please!

BTW, it doesn't have to be fixed wing! If it flys, it qualifies!

Well in that case I will post a good one. I'll offer a few hints to help everyone.
This plane record flight time is 52 hours. developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries. This Unmanned aerial vehicle saw significant use during the Gaza War of 2008-2009.

Nice badmovve, lol.

I know what that Isreali UAV is, but I'll let someone else take a whack at it. I gotta go to work now anyways


Later!

BTW, if you KNOW that you are right, just go ahead and post another plane, that way there hopefully won't be too long of a wait, waiting for someone to confirm that another is correct, etc.

I offer the IAI Heron as my answer.

I am pretty sure I am right (ie completely sure), however letting everyone go ahead anyway may lead to anarchy


So, being anarchic, here's another. I suppose if anyone does call it wrong we can double up on the answers

You got it correct. I thought I would be able to stump a lot of people.

I posted this thread yesterday, obviously most are fakes but worth a look for a trip to fantasy land.

Hmmm...reminds me of the Viperjet, an experimental home kitbuilt. Biggest diff is the viperjet had only one vertical stab as opposed to two.

Well, its actually a Vari-Ez but close enough. That one in particular was used to test out a pulse jet engine.

Outstanding find. Could it be an image of a flying prototype of the Boeing/Loral/Frontier Systems W570? Below is an artist's impression posted in Popular Mechanics.

Boeing/Loral/Frontier Systems W570 - Popular Mechanics February 1996

Additionally, there was a paper by NPS on the Tier II+ that displays an image of the W570, in the upper left panel of slide 31:
