Identify This: Freestyle Edition!

Tue Nov 27, 2007 10:48 pm

With 2H4 letting the smoke clear, and taking time to collect his photos for the next round of "ID This", I'm willing to bet that a number of us here are not getting our recommended daily value of obscure aircraft, devious cropped shots, and stressful identification. That being said, I present to you...

Identify This: Freestyle Edition!


In this game, the rules are simple. This is the same old identification game that you've come to know and love, but with one twist: You get to try to trick the rest of the A.Net community with your own crazy shots or strange aircraft!


Here's a few quick guidelines I'd like to lay down though, so this thread doesn't get too unwieldy...

  • Guesses will be posted in this thread. No need to go through PMs or Email, since this is open for everyone!
  • If you have identified a photo, try to post another one to replace it, just to keep the game moving.
  • Once a photo has been identified, don't identify it again. (feel good that you know it...but keeping duplicate posts down can eliminate clutter!)
  • If you have multiple photos you would like to contribute, don't post them all at once...let everyone have some time to mull the first one over before you stump them again!
  • If you have added a photo, it's always good to post a correct answer once it has been identified (or if everyone's stumped, don't be cruel about it, let us know what it is )

Finally,

  • Everyone is welcome to contribute! Post pictures, give guesses about others! The whole point here is for everyone to have fun, and maybe learn a thing or two along the way!


So, I suppose I'll start it off. A relatively easy shot compared to those of 2H4, but it's a start.




Good luck, and have fun!

Looks like a Boeing 707 300-series.....  smile 

And now for the next one:
-there was supposed to be an image here, but since the recent changes here on A.net, I have not been able to add images...

Well...close, but not quite. There's not much there to show it, but that isn't just a plain old 707...

And, since the A.Net photo uploads don't seem to be working well at the moment, for anyone that needs somewhere to put photos, I'd suggest either Photobucket or Imageshack. They're free, and work fine for this purpose if you need somewhere to stick a picture.


And, here's another quick one for everyone to take a look at. (I'll need to start digging for some hard ones tomorrow...)

hmm...my first thought was "the helicopter from James Bond Goldeneye!" but that's the Eurocopter Tiger, and the two don't seem to match up. I had similar luck thinking it was the Mi-28, or some variation thereof... I'm stumped on this one.

As for the one before that...its definitly a VariEze, or rather, a variant of one. Past that, you've got me here too.

Yes!

The cockpit is a Sikorsky MH-60S Knighthawk. It has the backup gauges in a T, while the UH-60M has them stacked vertically.

Belly shot:
At first I was going to say FMA IA-35 Huanquero, but pictures show that it had a trailing link landing gear that looked much different. Then I was going to say Martin Maryland, but the tail is wrong - the Maryland's had no dihedral. Also, I think there are no Marylands left. Finally, I realized that I was thinking too exotic - its a Douglas A-26 Invader!
