RE: Identify This! 4.0

Tue Sep 16, 2008 3:57 am

And the correct answer is:

Lockheed S-3B Viking

http://2h4.smugmug.com/photos/373578735_MivXf-XL.jpg



Deviously Cropped Shot



Yes, some paint markings were photoshopped out. The reason? Real men identify aircraft, not paint schemes!

The rule my NIFA team always used was this; you may remove any paint details to better teach others how to identify the aircraft, but no details can be produced or added to the photo.

We learned a lot and did very well as a result.

I'm in the process of trying out for the Flight Team here at ERAU Daytona Beach.

Best of luck, and definitely keep us posted!

Quoting Alaska737 (Reply 49):
Your not going to see pictures this hard on any test you take, Nationals last year was pretty simple, hard shots but not like this.

The key to doing well is to create tests using crops like these, and then test one another on them. A lot. I assigned test-making duties to my guys 3 times per week. One on Saturday, one on Sunday, and one for mid-week practice.

Full tests, including multiple choices and blanks at the end.

Because after all...the best way to learn something is to be tasked with teaching it.

One year, at a regional competition, we finished the aircraft rec test and the judges agreed to go through the slides once again after the tests were handed in. One by one, everyone would call out the answer.

Until the last one....a strange yellow airplane with wing struts on top of the wing. That slide popped up, and everyone just looked at one another.

Well, through no skill of my own, I happened to have saved a shot of that very airplane the night before in preparation for a test I was making. So I called out "Fleet Fort". I was rewarded with utter silence, blank stares, and a top-three score.

The lesson? Create tons of tests from scratch, make them brutally difficult, and provide only 2 seconds per slide and only 10 seconds for choosing the answer. Then, nationals will be a walk in the park.

ERAU-Daytona 1989-1994.  wave 

Competed mostly in ground events although aircraft recognition was my specialty. Placed 8th and 9th in the 1993 and 1994 National Safecons. Had a lot of fun competing and meeting teams from other schools. Many good memories.


I missed 2H4's previous competitions but I am trying to make a go of this one. Finding out that there are some current and former "Rec Gods" on A.net has got my competitive juices flowing.  box

Quoting SlamClick (Reply 23):
The picture I saw (page 3?) seems to me more likely to be a rotating turbine blade, rather than a stator. Note the style of 'firtree slot' which usually indicates it is for mounting in a rotating disk.

It's a turbine blade, not a stator. And I would certainly like to know what it came from.

Where is this engine blade everyone is talking about???? I'm curious to see if it looks the same in a borescope as it does online!!!

Go the prize photos here.

Then scroll along through the thumbnails to the right until you see three photos in a row of what looks like a silver bar on a green field (the thumbnails are only showing part of the blade). The first three photos were taken by 2H4, the last two by me.

Well, I would not intentionally crop anything other than the lettering out, so that leaves two possibilities:

1) It was unintentional

2) The details you're describing were already difficult to discern

If the panel you're referring to is the one behind the "C" and "E" in "Center", the latter appears to be the case. Have a look.

I cannot imagine one would have needed such a difficult to discern panel to identify the aircraft with the (typical for the type) main landing gear, large blue border marked panel below the cheatline and part of the nose gear door glaring at you like the sun on a cloudless day.

I know that feeling. And with the C162 I saw it but didn't see it. I was looking for a more apparent change in the fuselage line than is actually there.

Same here. I swear I've seen it before.

Problem is, I have no idea where or when - and thus, I have no idea where to start looking.

Well, it was a pretty tricky crop. It hid the overall shape of the aircraft, and also suggested that you're looking at a jet, rather than something with a pusher propeller.

This WAS a toughie! It's strange, but I thought pusher right away...not sure why, just intuition I guess. (And traipsing through aviation museums and reading airplane mags all my life!) It DID take forever to find it however...

Now this next one...hmmm...I have a couple of good ideas already!

That was indeed my first impression but i dropped it quickly because there was no discoloration on the metal directly behind the exhaust and the fact that, if a jet, the jet efflux would probably have interfered with the horizontal stabilizer.

I had never heard of this one before, initially i thought it was one of those weird French or British contraptions from the 1950s. A very devious but also educative crop  checkmark

That is the tricky part, it is not a nozzle but an air scoop for the piston engine, it has an intake at the front and funny enough looks like a jet engine intake, semicircular in shape/cross section, the aircraft has a similar air scoop on the RH side of the fuselage. See link below:

That's a joint venture between Boeing and Pratt Whitney to make a Hybrid Car. They where going to speed not fuel savings and noise. The program was a failure, but was bought up by the city of LA to blow smog out of the LA basin.

No waaaaay, I even looked at all the pilatus aircraft, but I guess I failed to spot it ARGH!   
Oh well, on to the next one!


Oh btw, will it count as a point if I say "propellor engine on 3 wheels"?
Don't tell me that thing has a designation on its own

You're not responsible for anything. Look at it as an opportunity to earn a point that others cannot.  Wink

There's a shot of it in the database, though that one is complete and not missing any parts.
