Quoting Starglider (Reply 249):
There are many of them around, it has a twin-boom nose section:

Well, -I've seen those flapping around underneath my boat at times.
-First time was kind of scary though, we were anchored at a coral-head with sandy bottom underneath us. Suddenly the bottom turned black -the "span" of that thing must have been 6 to 8 feet......

Luckily they are gentle, harmless creatures.

Now, back to the twin-boom tail!

I remembered the "Wing" part of the name, but not the rest...and googling "wing aircraft" doesn't bring back many good results...

In cases like this, be sure to check the photo index. Just click on "W", and scroll down until you see Wing (the manufacturer).

Quoting KPWMSpotter (Reply 248):
On the test I corrected yesterday, I saw the "BAe None None" and wondered to myself why someone was guessing that for a MiG.

Was this one of your guys who guessed BAe none none, or someone from another team?

RE: Identify This! 4.0

Fri Oct 17, 2008 8:41 am

Trying to find the location of this mysterious and famed Doomsday Vault, I had decided that this would have been the preferred means of transportation:
http://i34.tinypic.com/ztfc44.jpg

-but somebody else had chartered it for the time we had available, so we started like this:


-then continued like this:


-and finally travelling by air:


During our travel we downloaded some pics from our advance party:
http://i36.tinypic.com/2j2ix41.jpg
Was the secret location discovered?

-the transmission abruptly stopped after receiving this:


-now we were on our own....

We received constant distractions (from 2H4's agents?) in our quest to find our goal:
http://i36.tinypic.com/2lt2hyc.jpg
and like this:
http://i36.tinypic.com/25zkyhc.jpg

We sent up one of these with a camera:


-but this was the last picture we downloaded:


Understanding that The 2H4 probably had outmaneuvered us, the trek to find The Doomsday Vault was more elusive and mysterious than our capabilities could handle, we sadly had to retreat:


So the challenge continues......

Quoting 2H4 (Reply 61):
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.



Quoting Starglider (Reply 62):
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.

As it appears the point of the contest is to identify aircraft by obscure details then the obscure details should remain unaltered.

and they are quite different from the spoilers on the Magister:

Actually, I believe they are identical. I learned that the spoilers on the Magister are adjustable and can be raised and lowered to the amount you want them, and they look different depending on how far out you put them. There are no set positions.

Once I saw the pictures here, (showing the speed brakes in different positions)...

...I knew I was on to something, but it was the dangly thing that kept stumping me. I figured if it has those spoilers, maybe it was one of the Magister derivatives, and the Zephyr was the only one that had a dangling appendage. The two flap sections per wing helped clinch it too.

French Twist indeed!  Smile

I checked out that "fuselage 19" pic you mentioned:

That's the actual shot used, and only the second actual quiz shot I've seen!

Ok, I wrongly guessed "Fouga Magister". But what's the "dangling appendage"?

Cheers!

Very interesting...thanks for that link. So, if I read that correctly, it boils down to it being a "bridle" for carrier launches, and when the bridle breaks, the catapult kicks in. I never knew about that aspect of (older) carrier launches...you learn something new everyday!  Smile

No no... not drunk. Just cursed with an unhealthy curiosity about airplanes.  smile 



UnfortunateIy, I did not have much time to research the latest picture but I have a good excuse. I was on my first visit to SXM.  cloudnine  It was great to finally go there after years of reading about and seeing photos of the place on A.Net.

The Magister was one of the aircraft I thought of at first due to the wing tanks but dismissed it since I originally thought the appendage was some kind of tail stand and the Magister had the small tailwheel in the back. I then realized (correctly) that it was possibly related to the hold back system on older carrier aircraft and started looking at different navy aircraft but ran out of time. Oh well, at least I was on the right track.



BTW, I now remember where I saw it.  idea  At the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace in Le Bourget.

This latest one...I know I saw it while I was searching for what turned out to be the Viper. Now I can't find it again!

Pardon me...I must go now and sweep up all the hair I've been pulling out.  spin

A good excuse indeed! I finally made it there myself a couple years ago. Loved it, highly recommended!  Smile

Pertaining to the XPA-33 Comanche, could someone please post a link to some further info on this bird? Even though I now know what I am looking for, I still can't find anything other than a couple obscure references. I would love to read more about it! Thanks.
