Identify This - Freestyle Edition Part 2!

Wed Apr 22, 2009 2:13 pm

This follows on from this thread... https://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/tech_ops/read.main/210755/

Guidelines:

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!

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!

(Sorry I'm a bit slow uploading pictures, I hadn't done it before.)
So, to get the ball rolling, here's my contribution... I think this would be a moderately hard one to guess - but I love seeing it at airshows!  Wink

It's better to ask a stupid question during training, rather than make a REALLY stupid mistake later on!

It pays to read the discription. Looking at it again I'm going with the Fouga Magister for the first one. I have to agree with you. It is always great to see them at air shows.

Here's a good one.

You know I stumbled across this in a book I opened the other day... VEF I-16 from Latvia.

I do have a question about the rules here - is it considered ok to try and use google to determine the aircraft by searching for the primary features, or is that considered cheating? I don't want to take an unfair advantage.

Guess so.. -The whole point is to broaden ones knowledge of aircraft and what makes them work.
Here is a link to a site that 2H4 steered me to a while ago.

-Which brings me to your pic. The aircraft screams of a mix of different aircraft and from experience I feel that the Australians were experts in doing this.


Your picture shows the CAC CA-15 Kangaroo.
