Not from Bristol!

This one is not from Bristol, although you could argue there is some slight connection with the Badger. Sorry about the quality.

India Four Two challenge.

India Four Two you state "This one is not from Bristol, although you could argue there is some slight connection with the Badger."

Not quite sure what you mean, this one looks several years after the Badger. Could it be that you are referring to the location of its origin perhaps of another South West country manufacture?

Interesting thought Mel. That wasn't what I had in mind - it was a connection between the choice of type names rather than the manufacturer's names, but you are on the right track.

Also, a commonality with the Badger, is that this type's full name is also alliterative.

Still no takers? From India Four Two's answer to my question I take it that this aircraft was from possibly either Westland or Gloster Aircraft Company. Obviously armed and 1930ish?

Mel, definitely from Somerset, but the type name is from much further west.
Obviously armed and 1930ish?
Designed in the 20s, operational in the 30s and still used as late as 42 (I think). Armament: bombs, fixed 0.303 and a Lewis gun on a Scarff ring.

Ah, someone with the courage of his convictions!

This particular Wapiti was with the Indian Airforce.



It comes from this very interesting website

Kitbag's challenge?

It is 24 hours since control was passed to kitbag and no challenge yet forthcoming. To keep things moving I submit the following, if I have jumped the gun and you were about to post kitbag, forgive me and I will withdraw this one.

evansb has it.

It is the Yak 1. The Yak-1 was the first of a line of small, nimble fighters, (front-line nick-named The Little Ones), very easy to build and maintain, and with fine performance and handling at low altitude. They were lightly armed and had weaker performance at higher altitude (apparently they were not built for high altitude).
The Yak-series was the most important Soviet fighter of early stages of the Great Patriotic War (WWII at the East Front), before La-5 came into service.


You have control
