#181

Resembles SEPECAT Jaguar but intakes look different


#182

Yep, not the Super Galeb.


#183

IAR-93 Vultur Of the Romanian Air Force.


#184

This should be pretty easy…


#185

de Havilland Mosquito?


#186

Yes indeed. I was lucky enough to see this one in New Zealand while I was there in 2012.


#187


#188

Ah yes, they’ve made an helicopter out of that one!


#189

Eh… I don’t think that’s right in this instance… Only one made, pre war.

I’m guessing your thinking of the Sikorski H-5?


#190

Yep that’s the one! I mean the cockpit shares the same design.


#191

Ok lets get this rolling again…

Answer to the last one; Abrams P-1 Explorer

New one, this should be easier.


#192

Piaggio p180. I saw them all the time in Grosseto!
Did you know they made a Drone version of that?!


#193

Sooo…


#194

Aha, that’s a fun one! The name eludes me but I know its from that crazy Italian designer!


#195

That’s a Caproni but I don’t know the official name, crap


#196

I took a Challenger into Grosetto a few years ago. One of my first PIC trip to Europe from the States. It was the first time I laid eyes on a Typhoon other than in photographs.


#197

On further review I guess its a Stipa-Caproni… if ya wanna be a stipa’ler about it :wink:

Ok now for one of my favorite planes,


#198

That’s an ERCO Ercoupe. It’s a very unique design.


#199

You got it! They are strange but very cool little planes. Your up!


#200

Ok, this was a photo given to me by my Grandfather when I joined the RAF (he was in the RAF during the 1930’s and through WW2…

This isn’t my Grandfather btw, he worked as a mechanic specializing in Diesel engines.
