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.



Question #1:

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]


Question #2:

The Bellanca CH-300 flies over ...? Tell the location! (Hint: the city is the capital of the country).
[Comparedly easy, 2 points]

Question #3:

The Lockheed P-38 Lightning exerted some kind of cultural influence after WWII. What was it?
[No idea about the difficulty, I give 3 points]


Question #4:

Don't concentrate on the girls, keep your eyes on the animal! It is a WWII aircraft! Which one???
[You may not believe this question is no joke, 4 points]

Question #5:

One Japanese aircraft firm was not located in Japan! Which one?
[Possible to solve by working, 3 points]


Question #6:

Good eye required! In the harbour of Piraeus, besides a bunch of vessels there are four different kinds of German seaplanes laying! Tell them! (Only one counts, the other three are only dummies, but I won't tell you which!)
[4 points for the right aircraft, nothing for the others!]

Question #7:

This church forms the center of a village in Southern Germany, not too far from the town where I was born and raised. The village is a WWII aircraft!!! Which one???
[A bit historical knowledge and logical conclusion will give the answer, 3 points!]

Question #8:

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.
1280_3361616334356130.jpg

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!]
6538396338646332.jpg
3730346261303532.jpg


Question #9:

Which US-American bomber never received a "B" designation?
[Easy, 1 point]


Question #10:

The person to the left is Major Henry Clagett (later Brigadier General). Find the person in the center by expert knowledge (he is also a WWII aircraft!!), the one to the right by logical conclusion!
[3 points for the man in the middle, 2 points for the right one]
3935363063333935.jpg


Question #11:

She is a WWII aircraft engine!!! Which one???
[3 points, hope you don't completely ignore women's sports]
3337623233623737.jpg


Question #12:

Good eye required! These two aircraft are??? Tell the type!
[3 points, 1 1/2 for the left, same for the right one]

Oh Jeff!!!

 

Does this mean you won already? :o

 

Your answers:

1.Westland Lysander

Correct!!! How could you know? 5 points!!

 

2.Vitnius, Lithuania

Correct, but "l" for "t" in the city's name! 2 + 5 = 7 points!

 

3. Studebaker

Unprecise answer, not very funny either. 0!

 

4. F8F

Correct!!! The animal is a "Binturong", also called "Bearcat"! 7 + 4 = 11 points!

 

5. This is the one that made me realize I have to get back on track with input

     on the AIRCRAFT PERFORMANCE section.

I mean YOU CAN find it, but yet you didn't. 0!

 

6. Dornier Do.24

Caught the wrong one. 0!

 

7. Augsburg Eagle

Funny answer, incorrect though. 1 booby point!

 

8. NA-50 and then some, I'm out of time

Got aircraft #2. 2 + 11 = 13 points!

 

9, SBD, TBF, TBM, A-20, A-24, A-25, A-26, A-36, ect, ect, ect,....ect. Need to

     be way more specific on this one sir.

Maybe I needed to be more specific. What you list are attackers ("A") and navy aircraft. I mean a BOMBER! 0!

 

 

Stony, you said:

 

17. We(the Dutch) had such an airplane with that registration...

The question was for WHAT registration?! 0!

 

 

OK, just had to count how many points you can get here. 66, if I am able to. Jeff has 13 now (plus 1 booby point), so the race is not yet over!!!! Get up and post!!!!

Stony, there is nothing to spoil! Here we see PH-OTO (a Fokker F.VIII) doing aerial photography over the Rhine delta:

2 points for Stony! But you should admit here being in advantage! And I would ask you to devote to the other questions too!

Question 3.

Oh Jeff!!!

 

 

3. Studebaker

 

Unprecise answer, not very funny either. 0!

 

 

RT,

     I wasn't trying to be funny. But my answer isn't entirely wrong either. The P-38 actually influenced

some automaker's designs. The 1950-1951 Studebaker was one of those. If I am on base with the

auto makers being the direction of you answer then I'm guessing you were looking for a bigger influence

such as GM's 1949 Cadillac Sadanette to be you personal P-38 with its bullet nose, pontoon front fenders,

wrap around windscreen and its twin tail fins. ;)

 

rear%203-4.JPG?itok=ke7a07aR.  

I do not intend to go back and try to answer questions 1 through 7 again that would be cheating. How ever I was not finished answering

Question #8. I just ran out of time. As a kicker I ask for your clarification on Question #9 also.

     If the rules permit for a contestant to answer one or two question at a time when the time permits, then I might just attempt to finish

the Quiz.

Jeff :)
