Thanks Karlark. We didn't build a lot of aircraft, but the Pika is a favourite of mine.

Next...

Cheers. I suspect some will recognise this quite quickly.

G'day Kitbag. Unfortunately I'm not one of the 'some'.

No idea really. First thought was the very finny end of the XF-85. But no. Then I tried to work out the fin shape...



I can't figure out some of the detail at the bottom and at left of the photo. Now I'm thinking that the exhaust is not directly under the fin?

Just had a look at What Cockpit. Anything to do with the YB-49?

Everything to do with the YB 49, this is probably 42-102367 being prepared for an early flight. More here

You have control.

G'day Trevor.

Got a few hours to kill before work. What am I looking at mate? Very small jet intake, airscoop, piston exhaust or none of the above?

Presently 24 deg.C at 0830hrs and looking at a top of 38 deg.C later today.

(Mate, just had a look at AviaQuiz - no challenge?)

G'day Graeme; survived the first day eh, or are you in one of those high buildings in your prediction?

It's a smallish airscoop.

Quite mild here, 10 C, colder tomorrow max 8 C, then milder and wet for the week!

Yes, it looks like AQ's starting afresh, dunno if they scrubbed the last one though, or when the new one's going to start!

No mate. Did you see the film? We need to build an ark - seven of them.

Just thought of a French one that we had on AviaQuiz...but no archives now on the Dauntless site?!

In the right direction?
