Ok Boys my taxes are finally done and I have some more time to play the quiz game.
I'm thinking of a multi engined fighter that was produced during the good war but never fired a shot in anger.

Let's try something more sedate (?)

An advanced trainer

1) most WW2 fighter pilots of the country of origin honed their skills on it
2) the first test flight was flown by a woman

Not Stearman

An advanced trainer

1) most WW2 fighter pilots of the country of origin honed their skills on it
2) the first test flight was flown by a woman

3) early examples used inline engines but later it was replaced with a radial. At the same time, the fuselage was shortened a little

Just thinking a Stearman was more advanced that a Fleet for example...

How about the Klemm?

4) it was exported to many countries, and built in two countries outside the country of origin
5) in addition to training, it was also used for competitions.

6) in, at least, a couple of countries it served in Air Forces until late 1960s
7) many are still flying in civilian hands
8) in 1960s, a few new aircraft were built in an attempt to restart production for the civilian market. An air force selling their remaining aircraft saturated the market at that time.

9) It is a single-seater. I believe some USA based owners managed to squeeze in a passenger seat

11) after WW2, availability of new engines and engine parts became ... problematic. At least many civilian owners went for alternative installations: alternative radials, Lycoming and Continental boxers, even a turbine (ugly as %¤&!)
12) I suppose it is now better known for its aerobatic capabilities than as trainer

Not a Waco either.
This is harder than I thought but there have been so many aerobatic trainers in the world...

Somehow I never thought of the Bucker as an ''advanced trainer''....
It is certainly not a primary trainer ... and it is good for pretty advanced maneuvering. I suppose the step up to a Messerschmitt 109 was big in terms of speed, weight, and systems complexity. But at least you'd already know how to fly in all sorts of aircraft attitudes.

Building small and light was also a way to get around the air force ban, that Germany "obeyed" until 1935. Small may also be more economical to build and operate.

Looks like the stage is open....

I'll post another one:


In thelate 1930stheprototype of this aircraft became the fastest flying single engine fighter thatit'srespective military branchhadat the time. That, along with it's advances in technology meant numerous technical problems had to be soved before it could enter service.It entered servicein 1942 but of major concern was its slowspeed characterstics which played a huge role in its intendedoperating enviroment. Anotherproblem wasthe aircraft's tendency to bounce on landing.Until those problems were corrected, production models were transferred to a"sister" serviceand it wasn't until 1944 that the aircraft was cleared for it's originally intended operating enviroment. The aircraft proved to be one of the most successful fighters of WWII,earning nicknames by bothfriendly and enemy troops. It saw it's finalcombat missionsin 1969during a conflict that was famouslytriggered by a sportsmatch, andin which American pilots with experience in this aircraftwere enlisted to assist one of the countries in that conflict.

The "conflict that was famously triggered by a sports match" made this a bit too easy... Just had to check what aircraft were used in it. There's only one sport that could be used even as an excuse for a war

Vought F4U Corsair
