Innit indeed!
The LB-1, all Huff and no Puff, or so I've read.

Your control Trevor.

Wow, was I way off with the French parasol... first look in this evening .

The new challenge looks familiar. Wasn't it on Aviaquiz awhile back? DH4 if I recall?

Or I think the DH-9.

Evening Karl,

I wondered if anybody would recall seeing it! You're correct, but it wasn't a DH.4 I had a quick look for the Dauntlass Archive, but there's only the current "New" quiz online, my picture came from the web where I found the answer originally.

A bonus point for the name of the device and another for the engine type

Thanks Karl. Always liked the look of the XP-81. I wonder what kind of a dogfighter it would have made? Probably just a dog.

Sorry mate, but ImageShack has gone and died on me - duuno why, but will try again later today.

In the meantime Open house.

Cheers.

Hi Graeme!

13 & 19 looks like a wing brace for something like a Shorts SC.7 Skyvan?

Just a a wild guess.

Well, that's a quick control back to you Karl. The IAI Arava.

(May I ask what Image Host you use? ImageShack died and refuses to let me rejoin)
going flying.
Happy trails mate.
