The tail reminds me of various Bell aircraft. Is it a Bell of some description?



Hi Graeme

Not a Bell, but you've nailed the nationality in one shot.

All the best

P-80?

Yes that's the one,

The Canberra, depending on sources it was either planned to operate them in Chilean markings or the actually did operate in Chilean markings. There are supposedly photos of Canberras in Chili during the Falklands War.

Over to you

Hmmm...then maybe you mean the plan to supply the Chilean AF with two Canberras and secretly operate them with RAF crews?

That's an interesting story, not one I'd heard but not the one I was thinking of.

Australian theme on this one! What British military liaison and observation aircraft was used by the Royal Australian Airforce, namely the 16th and 17th flight units, to support the Australian Army during the Pacific theatre from 1944?

A Mossie was the first twin engined aircract to be landed on a deck at sea. An amazing feat considering the landing speed needed to be slower than the Mossie's stall speed! Brown was an incredible flier.....

Yup! It's a Guinness world record that still stands today 2,407 takeoffs and 2,271 landings plus several other notable naval firsts. Those being the first twin engined aircraft, the first landing with a tricycle undercarriage, landing a jet propelled aircraft and a rotary wing (helicopter). Over to you Gary.

Almost Gary, the number of take offs is different from the number of landings and right on the money for the different types.

Sticking With Mr Brown how many carrier landings and takeoffs did Eric "Winkle" Brown make in his career? And for a bonus point how many different types of aircraft did he fly? Not a hard question by any means but he holds the world record for deck landings and this man makes James Bond look a little tame! Clear Skies Mr Brown!

F-86E Sabre which he said of it "it had perfect harmony of control" no higher praise could surely be given an aircraft by a pilot whose career was legendary.



Well done Chris, over to you! The all-moving tailplane of the E variant greatly improved the Sabre's flight-characteristics.
