O/T-Speaking of Unusual Aicraft

A Heinkel He-111 just flow over my house out of Paso Robles Municipal.

There was also an unknown chase plane in that off shade German olive drab.

I picked the illustration off the internet because it is less an insignia.

No that I'm working at Tinker AFB, I get to see AWACs, B-1's, and B-52s flying around. Pretty cool stuff.

Here's a once-ubiquitous type that I havent seen flying in the USA for about 20 years! Spotted it last month at McCarran (LAS). It's been converted to a Vomit Comet. There were over 200 of these in the fleet when I started with a certain Large Airline in the 80s.

The V cut at the base of the vertical tail fin was immediately recognizable.

Plus the plane had the German Cross which was a total obvious give away.

This is a much better picture of the He-111...I took care of that insignia.

May I suggest a very unusual aircraft, it is the Vought XF5U generally known as the "Flying Pancake". Pictures on Wikipedia, one on display in the DALLas (TX) FRONTIERS OF FLIGHT MUSEUM. I used to work for the company.

I love the crazy designs from the early years of military aircraft. They really came up with a lot of wild ideas.

F104 "StarFighter"

[en.wikipedia.org]
... and 1971, the modifications included a small supplementary rocket engine and a reaction control system for flight in the upper atmosphere. During the test program, the maximum altitude reached was more than 120,000 feet (36,600 m). One of the aircraft was destroyed in an accident while being flown by Chuck Yeager.


The F-104 was the first aircraft to simultaneously hold the world speed and altitude records. On 7 May 1958, U.S. Air Force Maj. Howard C. Johnson, flying YF-104A 55-2957, broke the world altitude record by flying to 91,243 feet (27,811 m) at Edwards AFB.[80] On 16 May 1958, U.S. Air Force Capt. Walter W. Irwin, flying YF-104A 55-2969, set a world speed record of 1,404.19 miles per hour (2,259.82 km/h) over a course 15 miles (24 km) long at Edwards AFB.[80] Flying F-104A 56-0762 over NAS Point Mugu, California, U.S. Air Force Lt. William T. Smith and Lt. Einar Enevoldson set several time-to-climb records on 13 and 14 December 1958:[80]

3,000 metres (9,800 ft) in 41.85 seconds
6,000 metres (19,700 ft) in 58.41 seconds
9,000 metres (29,500 ft) in 81.14 seconds
12,000 metres (39,400 ft) in 99.90 seconds
15,000 metres (49,200 ft) in 131.1 seconds
20,000 metres (65,600 ft) in 222.99 seconds
25,000 metres (82,000 ft) in 266.03 seconds




Winged missle! Guy is trying for Land Speed Record in one NOW! Woman driving last year 536 mph.
