Okay, i have decided to put together another Aircraft thread.
Here you can post pictures and discuss Military Aviation from 1914-2002.
Hopefully this will all go perfect.

So, get posting!

:)

WARNING: Image intensive thread!
And keep in mind that you can request any picture if you don't have it yourself.

WW1 had a certain class,

But the Second round of global smackdown certainly produced
some amazing craft.

From the classic spitfire to the scary Me262 the planes had real
character, You could tell a planes nationality from it's profile.

Who can forget a machine like the P51 Mustang, or the Me 109?

Anyhow here is the first of my fave aircraft, the Ju188!

I personally prefer the Jet Age planes, they have been forerunners of the modern jets, and are really cool!
Sorry, I have no pics:( I had a few on my other computer... But those are nice pictures! Nice portable potty in that Fokker pic:lol:

Oooohhh.... (Drools)

I love that one! In my opinion the best fighterbomber of that time! That German MiG is a beautiful picture, it is going to be my desktop background once I get my PC back! Come to think of it, I am going to take all of these, and all of the ones that others post! Now that would be good, an endless supply of Jet pics to stare at for hours...

I voted for WW2. They were still experimenting back then so you got tons of different cool looks.

Can anybody post a P-38? That's my personal favorite. Or maybe the P-49 (?) Thunderbolt.

Here my favorite plane: a Su-7 (rust enough). The Su-7 could take fuel or weapon but not both at the same time :rolleyes: .
Nevertheless you could hang yourself of the pipe pitot without fear of breaking it and in some occasions (in the war India - Pakistan) received Sidewinder's direct impacts in the engine (even the missile managed to exploit inside the jet) and the damages limited to scratches in the painting :D . Other times on having landed it was not lowering the landing gear: no problem. They were landing on the paunch, a small checkup and to flying again. :)

As always, sturdy russian equipment...
Here's a later version of the same aircraft, SU-22 with DDR markings.

P.S i think the MiG 1.42/4.4 looks too non-russian, it kinda looks like Eurofighter.
