Yes, Googles algorithms find virtually everything that has ever been posted for public display. And I've spent 20 yrs fine-tuning my internet searching abilities.   As a little thread drift

That's it Kasper. The left wheel folded into a fairing on the right side of the fuselage, and the right wheel into a lefthand fairing. In 1998 Explorer Aircraft was established in Jasper, Texas, to co

Avid Explorer  when it was in Taree in 2012.

Well I’ve seen it before - it’s a PFA homebuilt and it has that very weird strut set up - upper wing strutted to the fuse and lower wing double strutted off the upper.  

 

Ill have to grab the old PFA magazines ...

No doubt about you, kasper, you're good.

 

You will no doubt get this one too, I just put them up because, from the PM's I receive, many people have not seen them before.

Hi all, have any of you used a Flightcom Denali D30 headset? I have had a Flightcom for 5 years and it has been great but a bit too big and a bit too heavy. I have a small head and cant get a good fit. This one looks amazing and is within my price range.

 

If anyone knows anything about this particular one could you please let me know.  I do not want an ANR. Don't like them.

 

If there is a 'near new' one for sale that would be great.

 

Any info appreciated, Debbie

There was a plane awaiting identification on the IPS platform, and I'll leave that in case Ian restores the missing posts, otherwise Ill post it again later. In the meantime, I'll post the next one in the list. What is this?

It seems you may be right in a way, although that's not the name I found it under. This design seems to have had a colorful history, and a number of names. Starting as the Farnborough F1, then Kestral, then Epic comes into the picture, and when Epic folded the international rights were acquired by China Aviation Industry General Aircraft (CAIGA). I have also seen photos of the same aircraft, B-00NC Called the Primus 150, but the name I saw it under initially was the AVIC I XAC AG300. All very confusing.

 

Hopefully, this one is not so convoluted.

Just by way of explanation, I am working my way through a listing of aircraft by manufacturer. The list only contains manufacturers who have 3 or more registered aircraft. There are 245 with a name commencing with A, and I'm only halfway through them. Not all have photos, and I've only used fixed wing aircraft so far, so I have a lot to go till I get to Z. I don't use easily recognised ones (although members like kasper seem to recognise some obscure ones). Previously I used the daily upload list, but these became mainly airliner photos (60 photos of a 737, etc).

Bit of a thread bump - there are two planes to identify, the yellow one and the grey one. It's been a few days.....

Well the yellow one has a menasco engine and looks to be a 1930’s racer. I’ll guess Brown B2 from the fantasy of flight museum but I thought that was red so I’m open to correction.

The grey one looks like an aeroacchi mated with a partenavia tornado!!!

 

So it’s probably the Italian AMX a-11 Ghibi

Very close - the yellow one is the Brown B-1, predecessor to the B-2. As for the AMX, it was listed as the AMX Acol, which appears to be a variant of the AMX platform, but wiki doesn't have any data on it.

 

How about this one. Nosewheel looks a little unusual with the wheel ahead of the leg.

I’m sure we’ve had ARV super 2 before. If not we have now :-)

 

That one has the 912 conversion in place of the hewland triple two stroke.

Bit odd to have a leading link. Nev

It works. But I’m sure it takes more punishment on the pivot joint than trailing link would.

Yes kasper, there might be a couple of double-ups along the way. The hard disk on my tower pc packed it in with my image files and spreadsheet summary, so I'm working from memory. I am processing these on my laptop and had to build a new library of images. As usual, you are correct about the ARV.

 

Pretty sure you haven't seen this one on here before.
