Hi friends, here is a QUIZ!!!! Questions are DIFFICULT!!!! (Well, I mean, at least the most of them...)
But, if you don't know the answer, or have no intention to do reseach, you can get a booby point by giving a funny answer (the jury to judge the wittiness is formed by Holger Bergmann, Romantic T. and R. Technofreak). If nobody gives the correct answer, the funniest one will be counted, so you can score by any anser. Too silly answers might be judged negatively.
French president Francois Mitterrand used to keep the model of a WWII aircraft in his office. Tell the type! (How can you? No use in googling for pictures! Hint: Mitterrand must have had a personal connection to it...)
[Difficult question, needs to have or build up historical knowledge, 5 points]

This picture shows the flying stock of the flight school of Las Palmas in Peru. Besides a lot of Texan and Boeing-Stearman trainers, you see interesting aircraft also.
For visibility reasons, I have to cut the picture in two parts. Tell the numbered types!
#1 should be known to anyone interested in WWII aircraft.
#2 is comparedly easy to google
#3 should be known by an aicraft expert of average level.
#4 is an eye-catcher, but I mean quite unknown.
#5 bec. of single-engined biplanes look all the same, I mean it is very hard to find out (it is a trainer, not a combat aircraft).
If the numbers are hard to see, the aircraft to guess stand in the first picture in the sequence (from left to right) 5 - 3 - 4 - 2 - 1 - 2 and in the second picture 1 - 3 - 1 -3 - 4 - 4 - 5.
[Get points according to the number of the aircraft for guessing correctly!]
