    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    What special bomb was invented in the middle of 1943 to take out German dams, and what plane was used to deliver them?

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    I believe it was the Upkeep "bouncing" bomb delivered by the Lancaster bomber.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    (ex USAAF B-24J 42-110007) The single US Navy BQ-8 detonated prematurely over the Blyth Estuary, England, killing Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. and Lt. Wilford J. Willy. See.. I thought it was a B-24.

    Upkeep bouncing bomb, known by the manufacturers as Vickers Type 464, and I think it was dropped from a Avro Lancaster.
    If its not a warbird, Its just a target.

    Both right. But it looks like Jeff had to correct the last answer, so who goes next? Jeff or Dave, whoever gets here first ask the next one.

    We have a Ryan FR Fireball, designed for the US Navy with a hybrid power plant; i.e. radial engine with a jet engine.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    The Westland Whirlwind was a British escort fighter. By the way since I have already answered three questions correctly I'm done after this one.

    1. Has this aircraft been made into a RC model?
    2. Provide a reference for the rest of us.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Brad, yes it has been made into an RC model and I have been lucky enough to have been its (this ones) only pilot.
    Built from plans by mate Barry who loves this AC and got the plans from the UK.
    He extended the wings by 6" and it flys beautifully.
    I dont think it is avaliable in a kit though. I would say not.

    Cheers,

    Brad

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Brad, very good, the Whirlwind is one of those rarely modeled aircraft. There are two gentalmen working on a 1/5 scale Westland Whirlwind on RC scale builder here's the link http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/...683&PN=1&TPN=1 you will need to create an account, but no worries it's free to view the build thread. Vance has already built one Westland Whirlwind 1/7 scale with 76" wingspan.

    I bow to the man from down under, Brad the next question is your's

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Thanks mate, and yes I have seen that build a couple of times on that other site. ( I am a member)
    Ok, to keep things rolling right along here,,,, being Spitfire mad it has to be a question on them.

    So, which earlier marque Spitfire was used as the basis for the prototype Mk XIV airframe?

    I hope that is in line with the idea of the thread. I'll be back on tomorrow to see if (how many) anyone got it.

    Cheers and thanks for a great thread.

    Sorry stang, not the MkV, although this basic airframe/fuselage did grow into some later marques.

    Cheers,

    Well done wingspar!!!!!!!
    Yes the MkVIII had a some what strengthened fuselage and wing compared to earlier Mk's and had the retractable tail wheel as well. Earlier Griffon engined Spits used some Mk V fuselages but the Mk XIV was a MK VIII.

    You have next question my man.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Well, warbird trivia isn't really my thing. So here's a pretty easy one:

    What was the USAAF designation for the navigator-trainer version of the twin Beech?

    (And, for extra credit, what Pulitzer-prize-winning WWII novel opens with a scene involving that plane?)

    I believe that would be an AT-11. I have had the good fortune to fly a '56 beech 18d. Proof that pigs do fly.

    OK, guys. I was looking for AT-7, but the AT-11 was also a navigator trainer, so you're both right.

    Cozzens' "Guard of Honor" opens with a scene in an AT-7. I think you're both up: both answers at 6:08.
