I don't know older planes as well, nor am I up on the post-war British military planes.

Here's one for you Luftwaffe fans

I vote this the snootiest thread.

A real snoot fest, but fun to look at.

The F-2? Japanese version of the F-16.

Edit: Electronics by Mitsubishi.

The NATO name was Bounder. M50? But I don't know much about that plane, or the manufacturer. I think it was unsuccessful. That's a pretty obscure one.

Any other interesting planes?

That's one of those ground-effect Soviet transports the Russians were playing with. I'd have to google around a little to get the name. What a cool machine. The Russians seem to be willing to go out on limb a little with their aeronautics.

That looks like one of the ground effect aircraft the Solviets were trying.

I really doubt the thing flew.

Shit! 205'ed by Bubba.

the Bounder (first pic i posted) was an actual flying aircraft, from the late 50s, totally dumb soviet attempt to match the B 58. no modern aerodynamics (note the fuselage looks like a barrel) i think it barely cracked 1000 mph, even with a ton of power.

the second pic is the Ekranoplan, the ground effect plane, that happens to be the largest of them, but there was a whole bunch of different types.
