Thank you, Sir. Please feel free to join in, answer questions and ask your own.


All; if no one else comes up with a question, I will post something this evening. I'd really like to see a new person ask a question, though. Thanks; Ernie P.

Seeing no takers, it looks as though you all will be putting up with me again. From a relatively unknown pilot to an aircraft meeting the same description. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird do I describe?

1. This aircraft was designed to fulfill a single, limited and very specific mission.

A couple of morning clues. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird do I describe?

1. This aircraft was designed to fulfill a single, limited and very specific mission.

2. In fact, it could have performed that complete mission during a single, successful strike.

3. Had it been successful in that single strike, it would have fulfilled its entire reason for being designed and built in that one strike.

Amerika bomber? If you want a specific model let's go with the Horten H.XVIII

Some very good and interesting, though incorrect, answers. The guess by CF105 was very good, even though not correct, because it highlights the idea of a single strike, by a single aircraft, that would fulfill the intended mission. So, to reward all this participation, here's a few extra clues that should be telling. Thanks; Ernie P.

1. This aircraft was designed to fulfill a single, limited and very specific mission.

2. In fact, it could have performed that complete mission during a single, successful strike.

3. Had it been successful in that single strike, it would have fulfilled its entire reason for being designed and built in that one strike.

4. And that one strike could have been flown by the single aircraft of its type produced. Yes; only one was ever produced.

5. And, oddly enough, that single strike would have been performed during peacetime.

6. It was an experimental aircraft.

I'm going to guess the Convair NB-36H or the Tu-119

I was going to say the XB-70 until I re-read only one being built. The XB-70 had two completed(a third scrapped partially built) of which only one survived to be put on display at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

You are correct, Sir; it wasn't the XB-70. But here's a bonus clue for sharing your thoughts. Thanks; Ernie P.

8. And the company was made to pay the cost overrun themselves.

9. The cost overruns doomed the company that built it.

10. Which was kind of odd in a way, because they hadn’t designed the aircraft; they just built it.

15. It was successful in many ways.

16. But also quite unsuccessful in others.

16. But also quite unsuccessful in others.

17. Particularly so in regards to range.

18. And in service ceiling.

19. Which wasn’t as much of a handicap as at first might be thought; since the intended target would always be located near sea level.

20. It wasn’t long before the military realized a much smaller plane, intended as a “short range” aircraft, actually had a range of more than twice the range of this aircraft. And half the bombload.

21. At the time of its first flight, this was, by far, the heaviest aircraft in the world.

22. Even by the standards of today, it was still a large aircraft.

24. The choice of engine had been dictated by the necessity of using readily available, and surplus, engines.
