View Full Version : Aircraft Recognition - Tests.

At the risk of repeating something already posted, for those interested in aircraft recognition and who like doing tests you might like to try here:


You will see links to the test page and you can select from Easy to Very Hard.

Have fun. (I've managed 23 'Very Hard' twice but can't crack 24!).

24/24 on "very hard"!! But I claim an extra point for question 23 - it's not a P39 Aerocobra, it's a P63 Kingcobra...

I'll get me coat....

22 so far!

aaaah, those ugly russian choppers always mix me up.

Good test of recognition ability.

Bit of confusion over the P3 Orion though - in RCAF markings it is an Aurora - the one shown is RCAF and one of the options was Aurora. (along with P3) - confusing

They made Kerms a General on their scoreboard with 23/24. Damned helicopters! :rolleyes:

23 out of the 24 on 'very hard'. And that was because I couldn't recognize a Yak-38 COCKPIT! (Mistook it for a MiG21....)

General Kermie sah! I did the same. Those Ruskie choppers are fugly.:)

General Cooda 23/24

Are we muslims? Only Allah is perfect etc etc. (Doesn't hurt to cover all bases these days) ;)

(Pity I hadn't seen a VC10 cockpit before :p )

Who has control?

22/24 - and I didn't realised the Royal Netherlands Air Force operated Fokker 50s & not F27 Troopships :( :(

My VC10 cockpit was a Ruslan, but I got all the funny US experimental aircraft right!

So what IS a C135 Speckled Trout ??


7th Nov 2002, 19:09
Ooooh! Straight in at No.1! They call me anorak at work but now I believe them. Great fun :D .
C135 Speckled Trout is a development of the C134 Red Herring

D**n, I would have recognised a VC10 cockpit!!! :D

8th Nov 2002, 02:36
24/24 third attempt:)

8th Nov 2002, 22:09
Going backwards now - just scored 21!:(

Old Russian stuff and flying display teams are my biggest problem.

Nice to see that on the cockpit pix of the CASA they actually have it written on the control column yoke!

24 out of 24. I was expecting more of a challenge!

9th Nov 2002, 16:00

10th Nov 2002, 09:02
Yes, it's really good.

Only the empennage of a Mikoyan experimental aircraft caught me out on medium. :(

I'll try the hard and very hard later on.

24/24 on "Hard" and "Very Hard".

Mind you, the "Very Hard" test did include the Hawker Hurricane:confused:

13th Nov 2002, 10:58
22/24 very hard
18/24 medium??
Bloody helicopters..........

13th Nov 2002, 13:47
Cracking site, but my definition of 'very hard' would be a damn sight less lenient than the one which allowed me to get the full 24... ;)

15th Nov 2002, 02:14
22/24 - Hard

I had to guess twice and those was of course ... wrong

three little questions though...

Was Airwolf ever airworthy?
What exactly is the Aurora?
And who built the C-7 Caribou?

15th Nov 2002, 02:52
Dunno about airwolf.
Aurora is the Canadian version of the P3 Orion
DeHavilland Canada (DHC4 gravel truck)

15th Nov 2002, 03:58
Never come across this version before,
any ideas of its usage?:confused:

24/24 on medium but that web site is the S L O W E S T. Some of the recent a/c pictures are good, but many of the oldies are givaways becaue you've been seeing them in books for ages and ages.

I think the Airwolf (if it is the one I think it is) was airworthy, at least enough for an Experimental class operation.

Speckled Trout is a NATO name for a WP piece of equipment. If I remember correctly the names starting with S were search radars. "S" for "search", get it?
