What is the relationship?
Some sort of dysfunctional relationship?
Burnelli Cliff-Owen was US/British joint project, the Concordia was British indigenous design.
What Caudron model did I post?
Cunliffe-Owen. They built a Burnelli model in the British Isles.
I'll have to look around. The lines of it look like a Caudron.
Got that one out of the way.
Holy crap that looks like a handful.
"Yeah.. I've gotten really good at landing just above the 250mph stall speed"
I WAS in heaven. I remember being able to get into the wings and crawl around behind the mighty R-4360 Pratt & Whitneys, climbing up to the flight deck and looking back at the cavern of a fuselage....
Back then I had no idea of the aircraft's history, and the significance of its sheer size.
There's not a lot of information that I can find on this aircraft. Perhaps the best info comes from a modeler:
Here is a a photo of the same type used in the movie:
DeHaviland Tiger Moth.
No, but the first time I saw one that is what I thought, too.
Yeah, the tail is different, wing struts, no fuel tank in the upper wing, I was HUA when I posted that.
Stampe et Vertongen SV.4
That C.860 is beautiful!
<BR>Klay, I was meaning to thank you for all those great video links starting in post #16709. When I was a kid I had all those 50s-era popular science/mechanics magazine issues that were spotted in the first half-dozen or so videos. Thanks for the memory refresh!
I hear you. We were about 2 miles from LGB and the adjoining McDonnell-Douglas factory. I didn't even know what all the planes were except for one, a C-133. I remember bringing our stingrays inside the larger planes so we could stay out there longer and not get reported to the tower by a passing pilot. One of the guards gave us that idea. We could go virtually anywhere. Times were different for sure.
Thanks, that Bomberguy has quite a trove of good videos.
I grew up on SAC bases. One day, a friend and I rode our bikes to the flight line at Plattsburgh AFB NY. We had both received cameras as gifts. We were about 14 at the time.
Curiosity got the best of us, and we started taking pictures of the alert birds. We walked right up to one of the FB-111s and took shots of the landing gear, open bomb bays, and weapons within. Amazingly, we were at this for 15 minutes.
The APs screamed up in their blue trucks with lights and sirens blazing. They packed us away to the OPS hangar and called our dads. When they found out my dad was the Avionics Maintenance Squadron CDR, and my buddy's dad was the Wing King, the poor guys almost shit their pants.
Our parents showed up, and we had to give up our film. We honestly didn't know we had done anything wrong, and we weren't punished. Maybe, someone else was.
I don't think that kind of thing would happen today.
Well, there was this time I was riding out west a couple years ago and I saw some sort of facility by the side of the road and I stopped to take pictures and then this blue vehicle roared up...
