    Re: A reminder of what we've lost

    It's sad. There's something going on in our societies. I'm not sure where we are headed now. I guess I'm from a different generation.

    A Pair of P40E Flying Tigers

    An oldie. The P40 was a rugged plane with good fire power, roll rate, armor plate for the pilot, and self sealing fuel tanks. What it couldn't do was dog fight with the more nimble Japanese aircraft....

    Re: A reminder of what we've lost

    You know Paul it's just enjoyable to draw something. To create something from nothing, from your mind. It can be a doodle or a masterpiece, it really doesn't matter. It's just fun to do.

    Re: A reminder of what we've lost

    I remember Valery's work, just masterfully done. Don't people like to draw anymore. Seems like all the sites are the same. Very little activity to what there used to be.

    Re: Bell Xp59 Airacomet

    Paul, thanks for that link. That was a great story. The air pioneers of that time had nerves of steel.

    Thanks Paul, Larry. The 40's and 50's were interesting times in plane design.

    Bell Xp59 Airacomet

    In 1941 General Hap Arnold asked Britain for the plans to their Whittle turbo jet engine. Britain sent an engine and the plans for the new more powerful Whittle turbo jet, plus a small team of...

    Blackburn

    This is an old drawing, I've increased the planes size to show more detail. The balloon in background is also vector drawing. The plane flew as badly as it looked. It had one of those strange little...

    Re: Tupolev ANT=25

    Thanks stygg. I believe the charges were sabotage and espionage. I think Russia was a dangerous place to live back then.
    Jono thanks, It would be mind numbing to be in the air for 75 hours. I would...

    Re: Tupolev ANT=25

    I don't think so, Gary. Just trying to show their aircraft design abilities I believe. Tupolev and some of the designers were arrested and put in jail. Typical of the Soviets back then. I guess they...

    Tupolev ANT=25

    This old drawing of the ungainly Russian Tupolev ANT-25 aircraft with a 112 foot wingspan first flew in 1933. Built to go the distance it could remain in the air for 75 hours and cover up to 8000...

    Paul, I have it on first hand knowledge, they just dropped their tanks to intercept a group of bandits.

    Morane Saulnier Type N

    An odd little plane with warping wings and a flyable tail for control. They must have been a handful to fly.
