Thanks Ken! I've already positioned 'refreshments' close to my sick-bed.

Bigger and heavier than a Tweet.
Not a mud mover. Pretty much single role.
Surprisingly over 250 made.
Useful active service career.

Skynight indeed - so loved by the Marines they called it the Whale or less politely Drut.
Willie? Shot-over, do explain!

ok, let's try this one, yet again don't think this'll take too long.
But I've proven to be wrong from time to time.

Thank you but will have to hand the stick back to you for this round. Sadly as a newbie I still have a few posts to make before I can include URLs.
I have a couple of nice ones I look forward to posting shortly.

AMT,

You can post a URL if you delete the “https://“ and just write it as non-clickable text.

I'll throw in the soviet TsaGI PS-9 /ANT-9 from late 20's. I can't find that specific picture of yours but there are similarities in the pictures I do find.
