War is what happens when language fails.


I snapped this photo on New Years Eve. I have no idea what kind of plane it is, and rolled a dice that it would be a Yak-3 or maybe a F4F Wildcat. It could just as easily be a Sopwith Camel, for all I know, however. If anyone can identify it, I'd welcome your input.

looks WWII vintage, but not a Mustang...for sure not a Sopwith Camel; that doesn't look like snoopy in the cockpit, nose is too small.

Perfect title for this excellent photo. Great!

What about the good old Spitfire. She had a decent run here in Australia.

You forgot Kaiden.

Kris said...

Tom, I can't figure it out!

Kris said...

Diedrick, it nails it.

Kris said...

Roddy, the nose is wrong.

Kris said...

UH, bloody Hayden!

Kris said...

Jackie, if I had a bigger list...

According to my husband, it is a Chinese built version of the Yak 18called a Nanchang CJ6.

Magpie, I thought that it looked Soviet (hence the Yak 3 guess), so I am pleased that I wasn't a million miles away!

Please pass on thanks to Mr Magpie.
