Looks very flimsy to me!! Is that you flying it? (I have piloted Cessna 150's, 172's & glidders but I wouldn't touch that thing! :shock: )[/quote]


Thats the perception that people have when they first see them and dont know how most aircraft are built .If you have ever seen how thin and flimsy the alum panels are on a 150 cessna you would say the same about them .Its not for everyone but I like the wind in my face . Yes that is me piloting it , I have been flying them since 1996 and hang gliders for yrs earlier .

Devil said,
Wasn't that the type that Jimmy Doolittle set speed records in, circa 1930's? (b4 his Tokyo raid in 1942 that arguably won the war in the Pacific by changing Japanese battle plans to attack Midway)



I don't know, If I see him in heaven, I will ask! :lol:

Time's up on this one:

Panavia Tornado
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Tornado IDS/ECR

German Luftwaffe Tornado IDS

Type Ground attack
Electronic warfare
Manufacturer Panavia Aircraft GmbH
Maiden flight 14 August 1974
Introduced 1979
Status Operational
Primary users Royal Air Force
German Air Force, Italian Air Force, Royal Saudi Air Force
Produced 1979-1999
Number built 992
Variants Panavia Tornado ADV
The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine combat aircraft, which was jointly developed by the United Kingdom, West Germany and Italy. There are three primary versions of the Tornado; the Tornado IDS (Interdictor/Strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (Electronic Combat/Reconnaissance) and the Tornado ADV (Air Defence Variant) interceptor. It is one of the world's most sophisticated and capable interdiction and attack aircraft, with a large payload, long range and high survivability.

Developed and built by Panavia, a tri-national consortium consisting of British Aerospace (then the British Aircraft Corporation), MBB of West Germany, and Alenia Aeronautica of Italy, the Tornado first flew on August 14, 1974, and saw action with the RAF and AMI (Italian Air Force) in the Gulf War. International co-operation continued after its entry into service within the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment, a tri-nation training and evaluation unit operating from RAF Cottesmore, England. Including all variants, 992 aircraft were built for the three partner nations and Saudi Arabia.

Backfire


Aye!!

The BACKFIRE is a long-range aircraft capable of performing nuclear strike, conventional attack, antiship, and reconnaissance missions. Its low-level penetration features make it a much more survivable system than its predecessors. Carrying either bombs or AS-4/KITCHEN air-to-surface missiles, it is a versatile strike aircraft, believed to be intended for theater attack in Europe and Asia but also potentially capable of intercontinental missions against the United States. The BACKFIRE can be equipped with probes to permit inflight refueling, which would further increase its range and flexibility.
