Morning clue. Thanks; Ernie P.




What warbird do I describe?



1. This warbird has an amazing performance envelope.



2. Not, perhaps, in the conventional sense.



3. As much as anything, its amazing performance is due not to what it has, but what it doesn’t have.



4. It was produced for a specific mission but has been used in many others.



5. It was in production for more than a decade.



6. Then out of production for more than a decade.



7. Before being put back into production.



8. It was put back into production because of the demand for new aircraft.

I'm not sure this fits all the clues, but the A-10 was out of production for I think about ten years, and then Boeing made some more.

Not the A-10, Al; but I'll award you a bonus clue to accompany the scheduled afternoon and evening clues (Sorry about that; I just got busy). Thanks; Ernie P.

3. As much as anything, its amazing performance is due not to what it has, but what it doesnt have.

6. Then out of production for more than a decade.



7. Before being put back into production.



8. It was put back into production because of the demand for new aircraft.



9. It has a very unconventional design.



10. But a design that was used quite some time prior to the later versions first flight.



11. But then again, the same designer designed both aircraft.

12. The designer’s first effort was widely hailed as being the safest aircraft of its time.



13. And the first of its type.



14. And a later version, with a different engine, became the first of a new type.



15. The earlier versions of our subject aircraft were used in combat.



16. In one war, an earlier version flew more of one type of mission than all other aircraft combined.



17. Our subject aircraft has served in a more recent conflict.



18. In both manned and unmanned versions.



19. The most notable feature of our subject aircraft is its controllability.



20. Another feature is its incredible load carrying ability.



21. Its empty weight is less than half of its fully loaded weight.



22. Using a different version of the same engine as a (perhaps more famous) +rival aircraft, our subject has a payload weight twice as heavy.



23. In fact, our subject aircraft is often called a truck.



24. Our subject is noted for providing the pilot an excellent “all round” view.



25. Unlike many of its type, our subject does not use hydraulic controls.



26. Some key elements of the controls are partially built from wood.



27. Our subject is noted for being extremely stable, yet still very responsive.



28. One version of our subject was specifically designed for hazardous operations.



29. Interestingly, the first aircraft built after production was resumed was delivered to China.



30. In some combat operations, hostile fire was avoided by flying at night at high altitudes.



31. The designer of our subject aircraft was part of a very famous operation.

Morning clue. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird do I describe?



1. This warbird has an amazing performance envelope.



2. Not, perhaps, in the conventional sense.



3. As much as anything, its amazing performance is due not to what it has, but what it doesn’t have.



4. It was produced for a specific mission but has been used in many others.



5. It was in production for more than a decade.



6. Then out of production for more than a decade.



7. Before being put back into production.



8. It was put back into production because of the demand for new aircraft.



9. It has a very unconventional design.



10. But a design that was used quite some time prior to the later version’s first flight.



11. But then again, the same designer designed both aircraft.



12. The designer’s first effort was widely hailed as being the safest aircraft of its time.



13. And the first of its type.



14. And a later version, with a different engine, became the first of a new type.



15. The earlier versions of our subject aircraft were used in combat.



16. In one war, an earlier version flew more of one type of mission than all other aircraft combined.



17. Our subject aircraft has served in a more recent conflict.



18. In both manned and unmanned versions.



19. The most notable feature of our subject aircraft is its controllability.



20. Another feature is its incredible load carrying ability.



21. Its empty weight is less than half of its fully loaded weight.



22. Using a different version of the same engine as a (perhaps more famous) +rival aircraft, our subject has a payload weight twice as heavy.

30. In some combat operations, hostile fire was avoided by flying at night at high altitudes.



31. The designer of our subject aircraft was part of a very famous operation.



32. His earlier designs were very successful and pioneered new tactics and methods.

Only airplane I can think of named after a dog is the Grumman Greyhound. This is a good subject Ernie my [email protected]
