Growing up there where I did, when we lived in Valparaiso our house was directly in the flight pattern for one of the runways and I learned to identify many types of aircraft, great place to grow up!!!

Or did some [insert your preferred "poor driver" scapegoat here] get in the BMW, put it in reverse, rev the engine, and drop the clutch, backing over the nose of the 'Vette?

Grumman F9F Panther
The WWII Fighter Gun Debate: Fighters of the Korean War

Quote:
This F9F-2 is being loaded with bombs on a carrier off the Korean coast. The nose cone has been extended forward to make the ammunition boxes accessible. Although the F9F was outclassed, the first jet-versus-jet combat ended when a F9F-2 shot down a MiG-15. There is some irony in the fact that the J42 engine was a version of the Rolls-Royce Nene, just like the VK-1 of the MiG-15.

British Army air co-operation aircraft were named after mythical or historical military leaders; in this case the Spartan admiral Lysander was chosen.

Bell XFL Airabonita
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_XFL_Airabonita

Quote:
The Bell XFL Airabonita was an experimental carrier-based interceptor aircraft developed for the United States Navy by Bell Aircraft Corporation of Buffalo, New York. It was similar to and a parallel development of the U.S. Army Air Corpsí land-based P-39 Airacobra, differing mainly in the use of a tailwheel undercarriage in place of the P-39's tricycle gear. Only one prototype was manufactured.
