OK - Let's get this started again!!!


Hey guys,

After seeing some of the great plane pictures in cinq's Bigger Truck thread, I though hey - why not a super-thread dedicated to the products Breitling is know for - Aeronautics. After all - it is the instrument for the professionals!

So, lets see your pictures of all things that fly! My 2 favorites:

The F-14:




Top speed: 1.88 Mach
Cruise: .72 Mach
Max weaponry: 13,000 lbs
Ceiling: 53,000 + feet


And the f-18:




Details (for the 18E Super Hornet):
Max Speed: 1.8 Mach
Cruise Speed: 1.0 Mach
Max Weaponry: 17,750 lbs
Ceiling: 45,000 ft.


And I gotta throw a mention to this one, the F-22 Raptor. Assembled right here in Atlanta....





Max Speed: 1.8 Mach
Cruise Speed: 1.5 Mach (super-cruise)
Max Weaponry: unknown
Ceiling: classified
OK, let see yours! :p :p

One of my desktops, cant find the original picture right now.

Closest civilian plane to the B-58 Hustler, one of my all time faves.
Have a Pic of one I took at Malmstrom AFB in Montana if I can find it.



F-18 anyone?

Somebody told me to post my sons plane here too so here it is:

Lego plane, place for 1 pilot, 2 passengers and a small cargo compartment:



(see the Navitimer on bracelet on the pilot?? ;))

And a wrist shot of my B-1 with the plane in the background:


By the way, some great pictures here in this thread!

Kind regards,

Cinq

Here are some pics I shot at the "militaire luchtvaart museum" http://www.militaireluchtvaartmuseum.nl/:

The museum is a nice place, there are some cockpits where you can check how things work:

The closest my Navitimer has been to an aeroplane:


We visited the Museum with more than 100 members from the Dutch Volvo Forum. My V50 is the last in the line:


And now some plane pics, that's what this thread was made for!

F15A:




Some other shots:





Missing Man monument:





The monument really touched me, more than I would have expected.

Kind regards,

Cinq

Love those Black Hawk pictures. Spent a lot of time in Hueys and I always wanted to go up in one.


Scott-

Here is that picture of the Concorde. Better later than never.
