Hmmm...Robust Russian? MiG-15?

perhaps a nice shot of a lock-nut would do?
Happy to look at ya nuts Brian - but you'll have to buy me dinner first.
C'mon mate, lighten up, holes are hard to find....especially ones that are Google image proof.

Here goes....

I would like the specific version of the Chinook. It is not the CH-47 in this case.

Thread intermission
A scene from one of the Men In Black films? Looks like a multi-legged two-headed alien (talking to itself) while protecting its brood.



Other than that, could it be those talking heads connect to pipe-work leading to the Thunderbolt's supercharger?

They do look like alien creatures by themselves unassembled.
Really don't know what aircraft they go with, hence keeping it open house. The Thunderbolt looks plausible, though.

Well, looks big and World War Two-ish.

In the meantime...

The Nation's Capital
Humm lets see. Boeing B29 Washington? no, Saro London? no way, MS Paris? no, no fuselage visible. Sorry but I'm clueless as to which nation your refer to.
