Guess the Aircraft

Recommended Posts

My intial thought was the 757, but now I'm thinking Tu-204?

I keep thinking its a 767

Unfortunatley neither are right. Its hard to give any more clues without giving it away.....i might post a shot of some of the bits of the cockpit...that might be worth a go.

Okay, I have some more clues....

This family of aircraft first flew in February 1987, and there are a total of 4 in the family. This aircraft first flew in France in the 90’s before being taken to its current residence.

I have decided to unveil a little more of the image as it wasnt entirely fair....any more though, and i would probably give it away. (If you are showing the same one as before, refresh the page)

Would it by any chance be this A320?

It is indeed! Although two others did say A320, i will hand this over to you, as it is an A320-200, and you infact managed to link to the exact one! Original photo....

And i will update my posts to include credit.

Thanks! I originally thought it was an A300 or A310 because of the landing gear, but those were too old. The only one that matched the description was the A320, so I went out searching for one with a dual main landing gear, and got that!

Next picture coming soon...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's an Aero L-39 Albatros.

EDIT: On further reflection I'm going even further out on the limb - that appears to be #7 on the Breitling Jet Team in the new 2010 season livery.

I went for the AC type first and was pretty much flummoxed for a while. Do you have any idea how many AC have tip tanks? I finally hit on the Albotros. After IDing the type it suddenly dawned on me that what I first took for some kind of camoflauge scheme was part of a large number "7". It only took a short time to figure out that only three demo teams use the L-39, so it was a piece of cake from there.

 

Good one...

 

This one should be pretty easy.

Probably a helicopter then - the Vne on the ASI looks appropriate for that and it's a right seat view. Chopper pilots alway fly from the right (wrong) side.

Mmm, that makes me think...there's a four-bladed, twin engine variant of the Huey, but I can't remember what it is. If anybody else knows, they can take the win, if I'm right.
