Brian
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: andrewh on July 15, 2008, 10:41:02 am
Its an Avro 504, probably K but the split cowl means that it might have got a rotary in there!, in which case I couldn't guess the type letter, and it might be a field fit

Don't know where, but there seems to be a speedboat below - which I also don't recognise

Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: Martin [Admin] on July 15, 2008, 11:18:50 am
Correct! - Avro 504K Science Museum, London  

Avro 504K biplane D7560 with 130hp Clerget engine no. 52090;

The Avro 504 first appeared in 1913 and was in service with the Royal Flying Corps during WWI.

As early as November 1914, three 504s carried out a 'mass' bombing raid on German airship construction
sheds at Friedrichshafen. In 1915 the Avro was adapted for training duties and remained in this role until
the late 1920s.

This particular one which can be found on display in Making the Mordern World in the Science Museum
was made in 1917 inventory number 1920-52. [source sciencemuseum]

Rick
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: andrewh on July 15, 2008, 11:43:26 am
Engine is a Napier Lion, which puts the boat in the 20s or 30s

Depending on fuel about 450 HP (80 octane stuff) to 1000 HP (potent brew) Schneider Trophy S6

For some reason "Miss England" leaps to mind

Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: sparky on July 15, 2008, 12:57:36 pm
Can't remember the name/type, but isn't it a Kriegsmarine autogyro, towed behind WW2 U-Boats for target spotting?
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: andrewh on July 15, 2008, 01:15:47 pm
The gryocopter is a Flettner - can't remember its detail. 
Used as over-the-horizon spotting for u-Boats - Sorry Gottfried, we had to dive, but thanks for the warning!

The plane filling up is interesting - it has a Siskin look, but is a 2 seater. 
Its an Armstrong Whitworth plane, with one off their engines, and its carrying out tests on HP leading edge slats (the big hinge fairings under the top wing LE) 
It looks also as if the fin has been made much higher - again because of the low speed regime its flying in

'part from that you have me stumped 
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: RickF on July 15, 2008, 01:35:00 pm
Yes - it's an Armstrong Whitworth. Want a clue? Maps connect both its purpose and name.

Rick
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: toesupwa on July 15, 2008, 02:37:55 pm
Correct! - Avro 504K Science Museum, London  

As early as November 1914, three 504s carried out a 'mass' bombing raid on German airship construction
sheds at Friedrichshafen.

Sorry Martin, the Sopwith Tabloid made an earlier bombing raid in WW1  :P

"On 22 September 1914, Tabloids mounted the first raid by British aircraft on German soil. In their most famous mission, two RNAS Tabloids flying from Antwerp on 8 October 1914, raided the German Zeppelin sheds at Cologne and Düsseldorf. The Cologne target was not located, the railway station being bombed instead, but the shed at Düsseldorf was struck by two 20 lb bombs dropped from 600 ft and the Zeppelin Z.IX was destroyed."
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: swordfish fairey on July 15, 2008, 02:55:14 pm
That is a Fieseler Storch, but the Gyrocopter is a Focke-Achgelis FA330 Bachstelz (Wagtail) Rotor-Kite.Focke-Wulf built about 300 of them in about 1940. Took about 18 minutes to get into the air, but a heck of a lot longer to get back down to the U-Boat, hence not a success.  Just a guess,is it an Armstrong-Whitworth Atlas ?   O0......Smudge.
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: RickF on July 15, 2008, 05:01:12 pm
Yes, Smudge, it's an AW Atlas.

Introduced in 1927, it was the first purpose-built army cooperation aircraft. The hook for ground-to-air message retrieval is just visible below the fuselage roundel.

bluebird

its an F-15 Eagle super imposed over maybe a tomahawk or trident missile test, My guess is F15+Tomahawk.

look  at the tail, you will notice a toothed leading edge, close to the fusellage, where it looks like someone has snapped a small section of the inboard horizontal tail moving.

identifying features:
prominant air intakes eitherside of the cockpit,
Twin tail format
 please see picture enclosed.

You can blur the photo's in photoshop or if you don't posses enough money or sanity to get photoshop, paint.net is excellent.

Not a lot you can so really on the plane front, its both blurry or both still.

it is indeed the Antonov AN225, one of a kind flying, formerly part of the Russian space program, it ws intended to carry Buran on its back, (hence the blister fairings), derived from the Antonov AN124,  by changing the tail to a H tail as opposed to conventional tail, extended span, and lengthening of the fuselage.  it was resurected into life because Air Foyle / Antonov OKB who ran the AN124 were getting calls for transportation of loads that were too big for the 124.

not sure what the black prop thing is, but a northrop F5 / T38 hangs above it.  oh martin, behind the pucara, there is a B.A.C Canberra, early model, identified by the full canopy rather than the off-set fighter style of later variants, and te full length of the Martin B57 American Canberra, (whicg also has longer engine nacelles to accommodate its P&W power plant)

 I was thinking of his flight in the open cockpit T21 when he was an ATC instructor and took a  VERY cold pupil up to a great height (without oxygen either) during the Championships at Camphill in Derbyshire to establish a new two seater height record.

So we were both right  O0     The photo is not a Slingsby built glider though !.

Right, Smudge - its the Couzinet Arc-en-Ciel. 
The model no. is more of a challenge since the model 70 got changed several times and rebuilt radically at least once.  The picture of the model shows it with the Hispano engines, so my guess is that the pic shows the  model 71 or 72 flying banana (same plane as the model 70, but they changed the fuselage, wings and tail)

A bit unfair to Brian but it was in fact the P1127 Kestrel, the forerunner of the Harrier.

The main difference from the angle of the picture is the thickness of the intakes.  The Kestrels were very thin but the Harriers were very much thicker.

Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: andyn on August 07, 2008, 12:57:50 pm
I believe that was caused by stress, as the starlifters did have major wing stress problems, and was what they were eventually retired for.

Either that or something crashed / landed on it.
Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: Martin [Admin] on August 07, 2008, 01:02:47 pm
Nope! Although stress expatiated the cause... a more basic error was involved.

Naaa..... 61-2778 (cn 300-6004) Tennessee ANG. Aircraft was fueled with the vents to the fuel tanks plugged.
The wing over pressured and blew out. Damage compounded by wing root corrosion.

Another plane nearby was having a test done on it engines when it started to roll forward and did that. Mythbusters tried that a while back and yes it is true thats what happens when a rotating prop hits another plane.

You were in first Peter, correct. He did a "dirty" pass then came back on full burner with condensation/shock-wave cone hiding most of the plane and disappeared with only the tail visible.

The aircraft is an Ilyushin IL-62, very much like the VC-10 with 4 engines at the rear. I would guess it is now a night club,in Moscow perhaps??............Cool... 8) 8)..Smudge

That is a Pilatus P-2, I think it is the one used in the Indiana Jones and the last Crusade movie. They were designed in Switzerland in 1942 and first flew in 1945.

Well;  memory and a quick look confirm is the GA Cygnet (in the open-topped form shown)

And it still exists in the MOF at East Fortune - don't remember it from my last walk round.  However I am still hoping for the pics of the Dragon, Craig (if you are reading this!) ;D

That's the one - literally. Introduced as a trainer for the tricycle undercarriaged Boston. To be fair, they also modified a Cygnet, but that was side-by-side, rather than tandem.

Still trying to work out the mark number of the Wellington. Best guess  so far is a GR Mk XII?

It would be cruel not to give it you, Smudge. It's actually a BE2a of No 2 Squadron RFC. Flown by Lt Harvey-Kelly, who landed at Amiens at 08:20 on 13 August 1914, No 347 was the first British aircraft to land on the continent after the outbreak of war.

Just to clarify the Curtiss P40 from earlier, The RAF (and others) used the name Tomahawk for models equivalent to the P-40B and P-40C, and the name Kittyhawk for models equivalent to the P-40D and all later variants. The photo I used was captioned "Tomahawk" in the book.

Hawks & throttles

I know that a large batch of fighters was ordered by the French AF, and was taken over by the RAF on the fall of France - I think they were either P40s or Grumman "Martlets" and had the normal French throttles working "forward to close". 
I think they were modified to reverse this! - prolly a matter to removing the wongle-beam that  the US maker must had fitted!

On the whats whis above there are points for the engines tooooo

It wasn't an artists impression Arrow. The image Andrew posted is real.
The XP-67 Flew quite extensively during 1944 until the constant engine problems caused them to stop development, If I remember rightly the engines caught fire during a ground test and destroyed a significant wing portion.

If memory serves there may also be a mention of it in Chuck Yeager's autobiography.

Just butting in ( no change there!), how many Zeppelins where actually shot down by aeroplanes?

Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: andrewh on August 28, 2008, 01:32:50 pm
Martin,

"Planes are just yachts with double sails"

They made special tracer bullets with a lot of WP* stuffed in the tailcone so they flamed as they flew
*white phosphorus  (96 bullets, I think to a "Big" Lewis drum)

several "Zeppelins" were shot down by them and hundreds of observation baloons since they were filled with hydrogen

The COW gun fired shells, don't know about the provision to down airships or how they were fused
Prolly the most well-known was shot down by Lt. Warneford over Cuffley for which he got a VC (it was actually a Schutte-Lanz, but who was counting?)

The wassis is some version of Boeing F4 something which I could give chapter and verse if I had my book on the family in hand

Title: Re: Name that plane
Post by: Arrow5 on August 28, 2008, 02:21:08 pm
Martin, hydrogen gas in the Zeps ! I reckon normal tracers would be enough have the German crew panicking and shoot up as quick as possible out of range. No doubt many weird and wonderfull  incendiary devices were tried. Zeppelins could fly much higher than winged aircraft.

Yes... I think Mr Arrow5 might have it... Its the dogleg in the tail that gives it away as a snipe, and the cowl of course but most the distinguishing features are hidden.

We shall wait for RickF to confirm but It can't be much other than a Snipe, as a believe it was the last rotary engined aircraft Sopwith got accepted by the RAF...but I stand to be corrected.

Alex
Title: Re: Name that plane

Yes, it's a Snipe, photographed at Northolt in 1918.

Alex, I think they may have been the last rotary engined (Bentley BR2) aircraft from any manufacturer introduced into the RAF (late 1918). They were the RAF's standard single-seat fighter until 1926.

That is a: Douglas XB-42A "Mixmaster"

Designed in an American attempt to build a faster and larger payload medium bomber than the Mosquito.
That big ol' prop at the back caused too much adverse yaw in straight and level flight, they spent from 1944 until late 1946- early 1947 trying to sort it out but eventually gave it up as a lost cause with the advent of the Jet engine which made the Mozzie obsolete anyway.

Post by: andrewh on September 01, 2008, 05:01:10 pm
Before we consign Horsa to history,
I thought you might like to learn how to distinguish Hengist  from Horsa

Hengist and Horsa

Hengist was coarser than Horsa,
And Horsa was awfully coarse.
Horsa drank whiskey,
Told tales that were risqué,
But Hengist was in a divorce.

Horsa grew coarser and coarser,
But Hengist was coarse all his life.
That reprobate Horsa
Drank tea from a saucer,
But Hengist ate peas with his knife.

useful, eh?

I remember that it flew (was reported to have flown) from Rome,  Ciampino to Pisa and the average speed was rather less than if it had been powered by the piston engine alone  (it had a powerful piston engine powering a compressor with fuel burned in the compressed air stream)

The bent prop: if the engine was running then the photograph was taken with a focal plane shutter. This type of shutter moves from one side to the other as opposed to the iris type which opens and closes from the centre . Any moving object will be distorted as the focal plane shutter moves with the object or in opposite direction against the direction of travel of the subject. Early 35mm cameras used this type for higher shutter speeds than possible with diaphram/iris types.  This is most obvious on photographs of racing cars that seem to have oval wheels in some shots.

Sinjon,

Yes the M.20 had a fixed undercarriage. It was designed to be a very cheap, easy to fix and hardy fighter to replace the Hawker Hurricane.

It even had no hydraulic systems to keep costs down and to avoid problems caused by a hit hydraulic reservoir.

Rick,

True, Oh King!  it was never going to be a fireball with 800 HP, a hydraulic turret and full naval gubbins fitted.

Didn't know about the rise-and-fall

Hows about this?
There is additional glory and points for "what happened next" and why is the prop "bent"

Focal Plane shutter? Shutter passes sideways and gives a bent effect to fast objects.

I've given up on Andy's plane - he wins!

I blieve its a Mudry CAP something, but can't find either the colour or the model - its not one of the SERIOUS aerobats as it has the huge thick wings (originally from the Piel Emeraude, I think)

Andy - give us a glue or wear your crown with pride - or both
andrew

Martin - that's a flying shoe

Slingsby T.6 Kirby Kite. Single-seat sailplane derived from Grunau Baby design, the Slingsby T.6 Kirby Kite was first flown August 1935. Twenty-five built, including one with non-metallic control system, for early RAF radar experiments. Fifteen impressed for Central Landing Establishment in 1940 for early glider pilot training.
