Linke-Hofmann R.I 8/16
It looks like a Lockheed P-80, in interesting livery. Maybe something else then?
I thought the same at first glimpse. You're on the right track.
It's a T-33, isn't it?
Yep, it truly was a pleasure to see it fly. The pilot was a good stick. I wish I had some better shots of it, but there's only so much you can get out of a P&S camera on a cloudy/rainy day.
I wanna see an airshow with a T-33/P-80
Black Diamond airshow team T-33
Just curious- what was the purpose of this flying sperm whale?
I had to look this one up. There were FOUR 260 hp. Mercedes engines inside the fuselage. Top Speed was 81 mph. Climb to 9600 feet took 2 hours. And Linke-Hofmann's main business was building steam locomotives! One of their locomotive designers obviously designed this monstrosity.........
Looks like it was a heavy bomber.
Name this one:
Its nickname will suffice.
I don't know what the aircraft is, but the two radiators lead me to believe that the engine is a water cooled Salmson radial.
To be honest, I couldn't tell you. Not even sure what country it's from, although I believe it is US.
The only reference I can find on the web;
Official Nickname: The Egg
Notes: "1923/1924, also called ""The Pickle"""
Any additional info would be welcome.
Cleaning out the old photobucket.
I'm a sucker for an old Liberty engine picture.
A trio of old trainers.
