Well done Reg with the new thread. :ok::ok:

Didn't we always stick to the image size rules?

Here's to the next million. ;)

We understand you Pop.:ok:

RegDep 2nd Aug 2011 18:41

I believe we did.

Cheers Mate! Here's to the new thread http://i1103.photobucket.com/albums/...p/f_bubbly.gif

Lightning Mate 2nd Aug 2011 18:53

RegDep 2nd Aug 2011 20:25

Thanks Mate and skytrain :)

Hitting the sack now. Take care!

HappyPass 2nd Aug 2011 21:24

I'll drink one too...
See ya tomorrow.
SC is archived, long live SC! :ok:

Lightning Mate 2nd Aug 2011 21:34


the AquaGlide?

Of course.

Ken has the thread. :ok:

SincoTC 2nd Aug 2011 21:42

Coo :ooh: page one, what a lot of space :cool:!!!

I'm sure we all understand and appreciate the Mod's decision and thank them for allowing Silhouette Challenge to grow to the size it did, but equally, I think that it was a very popular attraction for the Forum judging by the number of views it achieved!

That said, it would be nice if the old thread could be "Stickyfied" for a while, so that lurkerrs can still browse it, also, so that it can be referred to when checking against Mel's list to verify information. This is not so easy with the old "What Cockpit" threads (I-III) now they're deep in the Archives, seems like only recently that they disappeared from the tabbed listings!

Here's to the next million!!!

Well done for kicking it off Reg :ok:; now give us one of your famous predictions for the arrival of Page 100 :E!!

Good Night, Afternoon and Morning to all Silhouetters and Lurkers worldwide. Long live Silhouette Challenge II :D:D

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 06:45

Good morning Mate,

As my question/comment to you

That's from your days in The Saudi Kingdom, Mate.
became the Famous Last Words of the one and only original Silhouette Challenge, can you enlighten us here where the picture was taken.

And good morning skytrain!

skytrain10 3rd Aug 2011 06:54

Morning all. Sorry being on UTC +2 I had hit the hay last night so duidn't see LM's response.

Anyway here is my next offering...will be monitoring on and off today so I won't promise any instant replies.

And morning to you Reg:ok:

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 07:17

Morning Reg. :)


can you enlighten us here where the picture was taken.

It's an Omani Air Force Jaguar photographed at Muscat, Oman.

All were flown by RAF or ex-RAF pilots. There were no low flying rules, so hooliganism was always the order of the day.

Google U-tube videos for Omani low flying Jaguars. :ok:

skytrain10 3rd Aug 2011 07:19

Morning David...I said it was Oman!

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 07:26

Agree completely - mods (Robin et al) take note!

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 09:18

Hi RR,

I did a permalink of the last page of the original SC and saved it as a bookmark, and edited my opening post to add the permalink there.

I also followed up the WC and could follow it to MK III, but not I and II. I wonder if permalinks stay "forever" after archiving. Maybe mods know… Should I ask in Computers, Internet and Troubleshooting thread?

Update of Silhouette Challenge List 31 July 2011
 
The list of Silhouette Challenges made has been updated, up to and including 31 July 2011.

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 09:59

Thanks...Mel....:ok:

Ahhh, so this is where you guys are?!

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:01

Hi Reg...Is that a WWII aircraft mate?

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:06


Is that a WWII aircraft mate?
Well, yes and no. Never made it, but not because of timing…..

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:08


but not because of timing…..
....because it was never built?

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:10

Well, the nose reminds me of a Fiat CR-32...Is it Italian?

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:12

It was built and it was Italian.

Sorry, I take something back: It made it to the war.

Sorry 2: I am a bit confused now. Let's say this: The picture is of the prototype that flew in 1940.

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:18

The Nardi F.N.315...?

Second look. No.

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:22

Not Nardi F.N.315, but another trainer.

I now think that there was one prototype only, which later was converted to something more aggressive.

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:24


converted to something more aggressive.

bergamo-caproni ca.355....?

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:25

[QUOTE]bergamo-caproni ca.355....?[/QUOTE]

Shhhh! Not that….

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:27

Okay...........

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:31

Okay….

Shhhh, wanna buy a dirty picture, Sir?

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:37

Yes please! Also, do you have any of rare Italian WWII aircraft?...

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:41

Yes, yes, very rare. And veeerrry genuine. Belonged once to a Maharaja, Sir. Very expensive, Sir. But you are my friend, so I give you 60% discount.

http://i1103.photobucket.com/albums/...arePicture.png

Noyade 3rd Aug 2011 10:45

That IS exactly how I thought it would look!

Never seen that before mate. Looks a little like a Pilatus P-2.

The hunt continues...

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 10:52

Not a Pilatus. Italian.
