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.
Most of these aircraft are repeats, of course.
Old aircraft buff, I am. Oh the nostalgia of it all.
Who knew there were so many Firebee versions
3 of these US aircraft bought from Italy
