Maybe because the engine is essentially hanging off the wing like an airliner? Where is the "firewall" on say a 747, is it on top of the engine to shield from the wing?

Some say the Tigercat is ugly.
To me, though, it would have to be one of the horniest looking twins ever designed.
They never really served much in their intended role (limited service in Korea excepted).
I wonder how they really would have performed, given the chance.


p.s. Pharoah, yes, correct. They were designed during WWII but Hiroshima etc put an end to things before they entered service.
p.p.s. You can go for a fly in one over in the States, if you want.

And the pics are too big! Should be 850x850 - to avoid stretching the page out laterally.

2 dunno but a nice looking -7, 4 is apparently one time agpilot and now RA CFI from not too far from Watts. Must say, I wasn't listening to the radio but I was a leeetle surprised to see the aircraft doing what looked very much like a display pretty much where others were on downwind.

I understand the biplane is a scale WWI Nieuport, designed by Graham Lee and with a VW of some description hidden under the cowl. I was quite impressed with the performance and the clattery VW certainly sounded more like the original, than the 2 stroke Rotax that some of these things sport.

There was a Sopwith (Camel?) there too, along with the makings of what I am told will be a Fokker Eindeker, so what with the TAVAS triplane and others, the WWI replica scene seems quite active.

Thanks, my own anorak is a little faded, hence the (?), I was working off the assurances of a young man standing nearby. Rather looking forward to seeing a fleet of these beasties airborne.

Ah, de Havilland....

Caboolture this last Sunday, the aircraft assembled for flypasts celebrating the Redcliffe Aero Club's 45th Anniversary. Come to think of it, this photo could have been taken 45 years ago as well!

The irony is that the old never-go would have been new, and now all the really old ones are in far better nick!

Your formation looked good from the air as I was inbound from the SW.

Jaba,


"The irony is that the old never-go would have been new, and now all the really old ones are in far better nick!"


I found that to be almost as cryptic as a typical 'yr right' contribution until I noticed the Navajo on the far left of the photo...


No retribution required. I've already slapped myself with a wet lettuce...

Dora thanks for the Caboolture photo, great to see so many 'proper' aircraft in one place in such good shape.

Sorry no de Havilland aircraft involved in the clip below but, the safety message gets well and truly delivered.

DAS AUTO

Good init...

Gerry - when I was thinking about the caption I was originally going to write something like "apart from the hulk in the background..." - then I realized that Navajos appeared in my log book, 45 years ago! Gulp. How time flies...

Jaba, was that you in the Bonanza?
