Nice! Finally something I can do (although managed to screw-up the Su-27 )
Nice quiz, but one of the “transport planes” depicted was more like the combat variant.
Anyway, with this crowd I guess it’s not about the score but the time it takes. Too bad they don’t seem to measure that.
(Edit: In terms of raising self esteem, it’s very welcome, seeing as I scored like maybe 2 good hits while reading through this entire thread )
Thanks, really needed that too
EDIT: 10/10 of course
LOL! Yeah, I was looking for AC-130, too.
I felt a bit guilty, as I had a pretty good idea what that French flying boat is, though not specific model. In any case (as per French “tradition”) you’ll find the company name - acronym initials, I believe - on the top of the rudder. Still haven’t peeked, just the same. I was a dreadfully boring youth in school for my classmates, with all my illustrated books on interwar aircraft. Mostly forgotten now, though (maybe fortunately, except for this thread, of course!).
All feeling better? Good! Here we go, then…
@Cygon_Parrot has asked for a Random Aircraft quiz.
Answer below (no peeking!)[Vickers Vanguard](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vickers%20Vanguard)
Oh, goodness. Too easy!
Is the sea plane a CAMS 55/2?
I think it is probably right. I wish @TheAlmightySnark would confirm it for us , he’s got me on the edge of my seat with that one, and I don’t want to look.
Nobody recognizes the Vickers Vanguard that came up for me? At a stretch it can only be confused with the Electra and the Viscount, really, and I knew it before it finished loading the image. I was sitting there saying “Oh, come on! NO! NO!” LOL!
Oh yes, it is a CAMS 51! I have no idea CAMS Existed anyway so props to you!
I’m pretty terrible at keeping my british civil liners apart unfortunately.
Nope, it’s kind of a tricky one, you’re close.
stars at helicopters exhaust
I think I figured it out… but I think the way I figured it out doesn’t count lol
Pretty sure the 407 has four rotor blades. LongRanger was my own initial “reaction”, too, but then I saw the exhausts and fretted. Quite a while ago now, I’ve worked (office/ground work) in two companies that each respectively had a LongRanger and a 407. The former, unfortunately ended up at the bottom of a lake in the mountains near Cuenca, doing some work at a site. Both guys survived, fortunately, LOL!
I figured the image was a “trick” to lure us into saying LongRanger (nice!). Don’t know what it is, specifically!
I think it’s one of those fancy smancy engine upgrades since the 206 is woefully underpowered in many aspects(according to some people at r/helicopters)
EDIT: Hang on a tit, it’s probably the twinranger innit? The engine exhaust is offset to the side implying a second exhaust to be found on the other side!
You got it! Twin Ranger.
Hoorah! I’ll get you a fancy Finnish aircraft tomorrow, went to the aviation museum in Helsinki, I am sure that I can find a tricky one
