Sharpen your wits and try not to Google.


1. Stringbag outlived the Applecore - what am I talking about?
2. What was the ''Wooden Wonder"? Aeromodelling in Britain virtually ceased due to this baby during the period 1941 - 1945. Why?
See post no. 6 De Havilland Mosquito - It was built primarily out of Balsa wood. Clap
3. The F 4 U Corsair was nicknamed as the Whistling Death - what was the "Whispering Death"?
4. Vergeltungswaffen Zwei - explain what was it?
5. What was the similarity between the Spitfire and the Mustang - other than the fact that both were WW2 fighters...........
See post no. 6 - Both used the same Merlin Engine (Rolls Royce and Packard manufactured them for the Spits and Mustangs respectively) Clap
6. What did the super secret German unit KG 200 (Kampfgeschwader 200) do with captured Allied aircraft?
7. Which German Ace had a Mickey Mouse painted on his aircraft?
8. What are the "City of Lincoln, Mynarski Memorial and Just Jane" - the only ones remaining of its type?
9. Where Eagles Dare, the Clint Eastwood movie, had a glaring aviation blooper - what was it?
10. It was called the Ohka (Cherry Blossom) and the Baka (the fool/idiot) by its enemies. Only a few remain in existence - one of them is rather irreverently displayed at the Palam Air force Museum, Delhi - what is it?
See post no. 6 Clap
11. Which aircraft used 'C - Stoff' and 'T - Stoff', chemicals capable of dissolving human flesh, as fuel?
12. Picture Clue 1 - This is a Lancaster Bomber - serious or joking? The Lanc was supposed to be a 4 Engined Bomber, what is this? Is this a photoshopped image?....(Toughie)
13. Picture Clue 2 - Modified to look like a Jap Zero for the movie Tora, Tora,Tora - what was the original aircraft?
See Post No. 3 Clap
14. What is historically wrong about the Mustangs shown in the movie 'Tuskegee Airmen' - specific answer please. (This is a tough one too)
See post no.7 below Clap
15. What was the Mistel Composite - what a waste of beautiful aircraft!!! ?
See post no. 8 below Clap

f4u was named "whisteling death" by Japanese who came to fear of whistling noise made by air gushing thru diving Corsair's cooling vent. This beauty destroyed 2140 contenders in midair with total 64000 air combat and ground attack missions.

Over 12500 Corsairs were built

Okha is a manned missile shaped like an airplane with cockpit for suicide pilot with basic controls and  loaded with explosives , carried beneath another bomber on suicide mission.   They were propelled by rocket engine when launched from carrier aircraft and when rocket engine quit, then the pilot on suicide mission would steer it like a glider towards its target.  Used by Japanese in Pacific Theatre during WW-II

2: The Mosquito bomber. Built substantially out of balsa to make it extremely light and therefore fast. Ergo the shortage of our primary building material!

5: Bot used Rolls Royce Merlin (I think) engines

13: Already answered by Dreamliner!

Well done Gentlemen - keep going!

Here is a clue about the 'Whispering Death' - One variant of this aircraft had the unusually incongruent armament of 4 X 0.303 machine guns on the Port wing and 2 X 0.303 machine guns on the Starboard wing. Huh?

Another clue - Question no. 1 and Question no. 12 are related in a way.

Hi VC

Whether it comes whistling or whispering, the final result is same.  Jokes apart.

Is it Bristol Type 156 Beaufighter which earned name as "Whispering Death".

Sanjeev, Vishwa - my compliments! You've answered some of the toughest questions.

The Albacore was designed to replace the aging Swordfish but proved to be unworthy. It retired from services in 1944 before the end of the War, but the Swordfish continued to fly actively till much later.

Similarly the Manchester was a twin engined bomber that proved to be a failure but gave birth to the celebrated Lancaster.

For that you will have to be 47 years old and read a little bit more about WWW2 Aircraft. The answer is up there for you to see - decipher it - both are about aircraft being manufactured by the same company and designed to replace or be replaced - that is the connection.

The 2 engined Manchester was renamed the Lancaster immediately after its first flight. The rest is history..............

The Albacore kept flying in spite of proving to be an unworthy successor to the Swordfish, till it was eventually phased out. The Manchester kept flying in spite of being underpowered and unreliable and being overshadowed by the Lanc, till it was finally mothballed. All unfinished Manchester fuselages were converted to Lancs.
