Point of order Mr Chairman.

Good point - someone is likely to get banned if the mods wake up. (having served two bans for infringing the rule I speak from experience).

If you're referring to me, all I did was to give some clues that others might follow!

I didn't actually say "It's an He-100"!

It s not you who is in danger its meleagerto - he's supposed to wait 24 hours before confirming you were right.

It seems the wrong way round to many of us as once someone has identified the challenge time isn't important - they're first in the line anyway. What it should be (IMHO) is a 24 hour gap before declaring open house or posting a new challenge. The original problem was someone who just posted every hour and no-one else got a look in

Looking closely and blowing the picture up there's a bloody great quadrant on the LHS - with a handle. That's clearly the main use of the pilots left hand at some point whilst he flies the plane with his right. Something important is being rotated methinks.

Much of yesterday was spent looking at swing wings and rotating wings a la Osprey and rotating engines or nozzles - its not a UK or USA, doesn't look Russian, I don' think the French rotated anything but the Germans did

Thus I meandered to the VJ101 - I can remember some early footage way back.

Rather sleek looking machine. First flight in early 1988 - says Wikipedia.

Not a Mooney.
Bigger.

Wiki says "about" 13 built.

Pusher prop.

Cirrus VK30 I think

"As a kit aircraft, the VK-30 is a relatively obscure design with few completed aircraft flying. Its most important legacy is that the work done on developing and marketing the aircraft convinced the designers, the Klapmeier brothers, that the best way to proceed in the future was with a more conventional layout and with a certified production aircraft. Thus the lessons of the VK-30 were directly responsible for the design of the Cirrus SR20 and SR22, "
