  1. Couldn't find an appropriate forum, so here will have to do. I received these images among a number of others on various subjects. No explanation or details.

    Interesting cloud formations

    Guess This Aircraft ?

    Kasper, between you and Thruster88, you're knocking them off quicker than I can put them up, I've had complaints that others don't get a chance.

    Guess This Aircraft ?

    I'll pay that as close enough. This extract from Wikipedia explains why: Plans and kits were distributed by Aérodis in France and by Aerodis America Inc. in the USA.[3] Individual builders, often using the original moulds at Brienne-le-Chateau, continued to innovate.[4] Around 1990 Jaques Darcissac built an Orion with a fuselage strengthened with wire mesh and with a more robust undercarriage, which he named the Darcissac-Grinvalds DG-87 Goéland(Seagull in English) and this name has been used by three other builders.[5][6] Other builders have also given their aircraft different names, such as Gerfaut, Gypaète and Scorpion. A new version of the Orion, tailored for US market was designed, known as the AA200.[4][5] This one is the Gerfaut (GerFalcon). So probably builder's modification. This one's a bit off-beat. You'll probably get it in a couple of minutes - or less.

    Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder?

    I hear what you say about Concorde, Nev, and take your word about close-up, never got to see one at all,but in cruise flight they are (were) a thing of beauty - 50 years ahead of their time.

    It's one of a number of similar models one of which is the J3 Kitten. It is registered as a Hipps Superbirds Reliant. Google links them together. I've just added another 17 to the list so there's quite a few to go. How about this one?

    Have you been off the site for a few days T88? Expected you to get it sooner.

    Well done Merc. Here's the next one. It's pretty unique, so will no doubt be well known.

    Plane Spotters

    I must say, I'm a little surprised. I put a classified on this site advertising a CD of aircraft photos from the last 6 Avalon Air Shows, plus the RAAF 100th Anniversary Airshow. A total of over 400 photos, at 10c per photo, or $40 postage paid in Austratlia, I received one enquiry, as to whether I had a certain aircraft. I thought there might have been a bit more interest from this community. So I decided to try a wider audience and posted on Facebook Marketplace. Over 4200 views, with 5 responses. When I replied, they all said they clicked the More Information button by mistake. I don't know where else one would get photos for 10c. But it's not worth burning 1 photo on a CD. I didn't expect to sell hundreds, but half a dozen would have been nice.

    What Now - please advise

    I can't locate the preference link. I don't need to receive any emails as I'm on the site numerous times a day and check What's New All, so I see everything. I just have to delete all the emails as they chew up my inbox space.
  20. Joe Everyman's generic name for light aircraft.

    OK, I'll cop that. Done this morning in a hurry. I have to suss out the next one, so it might take a day or two.
