Ok lets get those brain cells firing fans of aviation!
How to play; Post up the name of the aircraft in the last unanswered post (such as McDonnell Douglas F-18) just posting Hornet isn’t good enough. If you got it right (up to who posted it if its right) then you post the next picture up for ID.
I’ll start it off, should be a little challenging:
Lets try and keep this clean too, I mean lets face it reverse image search is cheating… right? Lets flex those avgeek muscles. Don’t hesitate to join in though, especially if your new!
A search on Google revealed the answer. Have Blue was my first thought but it looked much like the F117 with a different tail configuration. A Google search revealed the answer but I saw the photograph first, which I guess is cheating. It is not an aircraft I had ever heard of before.
I may even know that one. It was a German S-VTOL experimental craft right before the Harrier jump jet.
Of course I can’t remember the name now…
EDIT:it was eating me alive… I had to google the image. I was right. I had it. I knew it from an old Take-Off issue, a life and a half ago. Was an article about S-VTOL research in europe and beyond.
Still, pretty happy with myself.
