What's remarkable is the how many aircraft have been built.
One off's should be worth extra points.

Arctic Tern aka EMSCO Arctic Tern 1932





Artic Tern (Again)

"In the late 1960’s, the Type Certificates and tooling were bought by the newly formed Arctic Aircraft Company. Arctic Aircraft transformed the S-1B1 into a bush plane by upgrading structural elements of the fuselage, landing gear, and wings. This new aircraft, designated the S-1B2, was reconfigured with a Lycoming O-320 160 HP engine and 82” McCauley propeller for increased performance. The Model S-1B2 was Type Certificated in 1975, and came to be known as the Arctic Tern. Arctic Aircraft produced the Arctic Tern from 1975 until 1985."

BAE Corax

CORAX ISTAR SYSTEM DEMONSTRATOR

The Corax programme proved that a modular design UAV was successful, the Corax air vehicle being a Raven body with wings. Corax is a multi-role ISTAR system demonstrator and was completed in 2005.

The Corax system drew on the advanced flight control system from the Raven programme and was aimed at the manufacture of a high survivability strategic UAV system. Corax uses the same centre body design as Raven and composite wings manufactured at BAE Systems in Samlesbury, Lancashire.

I wasn't able to get this one, but a65l got it pretty fast. I think he's the best at this game. How'd you do it, a65l?

Mostly luck, and some dim memories.

Intended to launch from B-36 for fighter protection. Similar in concept to the small fighters launched and retrieved from the dirigibles Macon and Akron.
