Hi.

I've got quite a few pictures of military planes and helicopters. But the problem is I don't know the name of the type.

Another problem is that I don't know how to show you the pictures I'm talking about, as they are not added to A.net (yet). If someone can help me with that, I would trully appriciate it.

Here is a description of some of the aircrafts.

1. A fairly old fighter (60s-70s) 2 jet-intakes, 2 seat, short tail. Belonging to the chez (i think) airforce. With black colours and a dolphin painted on the nose. (If that's of any help.)

2. A small military helicopter named something like Gazelle. Anyone have any more information?

I hope someone can help me with any of the above.

PS! I know this is the civil aviation forum, but where else do I put this topic? Hope it won't be deleted.

There is a Czech two-seat jet trainer I believe called the Delfina. I'll have to check some of my old books when I get home to see if I can find more info. Sorry I cannot be of greater help at the moment, but will see what I can dig up.

First of all I have to say thank you to everyone for your help.  

9A-CRO---The plane has a high T-tail, low mounted main wings and is registered G-DLFN. Isn't that british? The "logo" is on the tail. A circle with the checoslovakian (sp?) flag in it.

I doubt it that it is a MIG 23, but I'll try to send you a picture of the plane soon.

btw. We have the same word for dolphin in Norwegian too, so I understood that.  

Thanks again.

Ok,
it is probably an Aero L-29 Delfin owned by a private in UK for airshows.
It could be true because the L-29 is a very old design and like many others -50s and -60s warbirds is becoming popular among privates to show them in public airshows.
The Aerospatiale Gazelle is actually a French project but it was adopted by UK armed forces in huge numbers and built by Westland in Yeovilton. It is one of the 3 types of the Anglo French Helicopter programme, the other 2 being the Aerospatiale Puma and the Westland Lynx.

Ciao
