Answer below (no peeking!)[Breda Ba.88](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breda%20Ba.88)


Yah the flying boat got me, but it was an interesting read.


I’ll look it up now.

The other one, think it is a Breda, not sure about the exact model.:disappointed_relieved:


I thought I knew some aircraft but this game is teaching me I don’t know that much lol


Same here, LOL!

Edit: I was right about the company of that Italian aircraft. And there’s a relatively recent reason why I “sort of” got it, too. Not such a long story, but superfluous. Does that entitle me to the next quiz?

Here goes anyway…

Answer below (no peeking!)[Waco Mailplanes](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco%20Mailplanes)


No tries? OK, then. I’ll give it a go. :slight_smile: Boeing Model 40, I was thinking? Not convinced…


That’s pretty close - wow. It is a mail plane…


Indeed, it is quite typical looking of those mail planes as used by messrs Lindberg and unwitting entrepreneur Jeppesen himself. Might even be it; I’m not too well versed in that particular history, in any depth.

It might occur to me yet, so I’m not peeking…:slight_smile:

Answer below (no peeking!)[Xian JH-7](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xian%20JH-7)


Chinese Tornaduar?


Thought it was a Chinese Phantnado II.


I was thinking it was a JL-9 but I just put eyes on one and it definitely isn’t.

Also Jag-nado would be a good name lol


Yeah, I was thinking Shengyang something myself. No doubt Chinese, though. Can’t even think of the NATO designation name. I’d better get good at these, as there’s always the chance I could end up in that area of the world, lol!

@fearlessfrog looks like a dead image link, but it’s a formatting thing I think. Found the correct image on the wikipedia page:


Yep, sometimes doesn’t work. If it does that just delete the post and reroll.

Besides, all it does is remind me there are a lot of planes out there I have no idea about recognizing… :wink:


I’m about 1 for 40…



Something to raise your self esteems again. LOL!
