G'day Brian.

Looks very much like the Northrop X-21?

Correct The Northrop X-21 project was based on a Douglas B-66 airframe.
You have control.

Thanks Brian.

Think of a critter that according to Hollywood "can strip the flesh from a cow to the bone, in 30 minutes" and you will solve this, and my Cockpit Challenge.

Police/Firemen = Electrical fault.
Me = Today's troubled youth.

(What's with the gopher routine mate? One second you're there, and then you're gone. )

Wassmer WA-81
Done!

All yours.

(Also have it as the Issoire IA Pirahna - when Wassmer went under.)

Night.

Sorry mate, but it's almost the top of the night here, so I'll have to leave you with Open House.

Morning Bri - nice to see someone around.

No connection whatsoever - this one's German/Swiss, and now marketed in the USA.

petrel

Ridge,
Just to let you know I am intimately familiar with the plane in your picture. I just finished working on a project were I designed a new plane based on the hull of the one in your picture. In fact we used that plane and pulled a mold directly from the hull. I designed a new fuselage, boom and tail to fit another wing the company already had. The plane in your picture is in fact a Petrel. It is stationed at a small airfield in Rayong Thailand. I think your picture is a few years old. Or it could be very recent after we finished with it. I have alot of pics for it but cannot figure out how to put one in this message. sorry.
