Historic Irish Aviation Photo Quiz

Post by Papa8 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 10:03 pm

Ok,

This is a pass-the-parcel type quiz (pprune users might know this type already). Three rules and one piece of advice.

1. If you guess correctly you must post another photo within twenty-four hours or state 'pass' which opens the floor to the first person that comes along.
2. Photo must be of something classically related to Irish aviation (25 years older or more - roughly). Choice is yours - name the aerodrome, name the control tower, name the face etc. Please don't make it name the cockpit as they take forever and slow the game down too much.
3. One photo at a time and people should wait for confirmation from the person who put the photo up for a reasonable period of time.

Advice: Upload a suitable photo to a free photo gallery like photobucket or picasa or flickr etc and scramble the filename so noone can guess the link.

So to start off name the airfield where this photo was taken.

Well since inverted didn't take control or 'pass' here is another one. This time name the type of aircraft.

Yeah I should have waited - breaking my own rules :roll: Go on then two goes. God only knows what we do now if each one is guessed correctly by two different people :!: I guess throw up one and if guessed correctly then whoever gets the second gets control.

So you do not know if it was the Junkers W33 Bremen or the Junkers W33 Europa both were at Baldonnel.

If N774TS was written off by the Air Corps how come it was photographed at Atlanta Dec 2008.

GoGoGadgetGoAround I'm afraid your wrong on this one, nice try though !

Comet its a Junkers w33, and I couldnt give a tuppence which one it is. I thought it was the Breman but if were getting all jumpy over which one it is I'll edit my previous statement.

Which one do you think it is, and futhermore can you answer the question regarding the aircraft I posted above ?

The source of the photo identified it as the 'Bremen'. Is the N-reg aircraft of military heritage at all then?

Papa8, No millitary heritage on the jet but it does have strong irish connections, (just about making it into your criteria!)

J3cub, I'm afraid your wrong on this one, the aircraft your thinking of was a citation !
