Doubt it's a Stinson 10A Voyager... wrong type of construction! The Voyagers appear to be covered with fabric and dope and not aluminum... an have no access panels on the port side nor top of the fuselage either. I don't see the first digit of the "N" registration as being a "3" either... looks like a "5" to me... :-)

K35R is the designation you want. It helps if you watch military flight tracks frequently lol. Great shot though.

thanks for the nice comments greg

bold and asking dumm question, , why doesn't the US military squads apply cool paint jobs like this to theirs? Everything I've ever seen of US military planes, other than the 'Birds or the 'Blues, have dull gray paint.

can't afford the operation of one but I've flown them and LOVE it. I certainly would not allow mine to look like that.

The black steak starting starboard of the nosegay door is from the Janitrol cabin heater. These gasoline burners are notorious for emitting black soot due to rich burning.

The black belly streak beginning starboard of the nose gear is from the Janitrol cabin heater. Notorious for emitting lots of black soot.

That's a very nice shot of a C-130 out of Ramstein AFB, Fabian! It reminds me of the years I lived in Einsiedlerhof (between Kaiserslautern and Landstuhl), right next to Ramstein. Thanks!

Another nice one, Brian! I don't comment on all your pics, but I do try to look at them all. You get some pretty interesting aircraft coming through there, and I don't recall seeing a bad shot. Pretty much all 4 or 5 stars. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

These are of course not DHC-2 Beavers, but DHC-3 Otters. Typo on uploading the photo.

I was lucky to fly a corporate 421 with colonel Milt Hartenbower USAF. He flew Averell Harriman in
T-39s out of Andrews AFB. Milt had thousands of stories that he would share as we flew around the country. He was a great man and an awesome pilot.

I get self introspective with this view.A USAF Aircraft career commencing in 1952, and now approaching into a beautiful peaceful sunset. May be my most impressing scene at this date.
Thanks for all the memories.

Thank you Peter !

Very nice.

Not sure of the reason for the open canopy, but probably a security procedure.

In France, we add (many years ago !) some "Marine" Fouga Magister used on aircraft-carrier. As this jet-plane had no ejectable seat, the take-off (using the catapult) was done with the canopy open. In case of problem, as ejection was not possible, this ease the evacuation.
But seems no to be the case here, as the P-84 has two Martin-Baker seats.

In the early 1980s, after completing a low-level training route in a B-52H, I got to do an unrestricted climb from about 2,000 feet to 29,000 thousand feet. We had about 90 thousand pounds of fuel remaining, giving us an approximate weight of 270,000 pounds. At that weight, the eight Pratt & Whitney TF33-P-3s could easily give the BUFF an initial climb rate of 4,000 feet per minute. It almost felt like I was back in a T-38 Talon again (without afterburner of course).

Thanks everyone! I believe it was JFK's plane, but I would have to check to make sure. And I think I had heard before that JFK (and/or Jackie?) played a significant role in the design. Thanks, again!

Written on 05/19/2018 by Greg Byington

Beauty shot but it's got to be a take smoke from the tyres if it's landing

Written on 05/19/2018 by Peter Singh

Thank you for the kind words everyone! Larry sadly many USAF Skyraiders were lost of Southeast Asia, according to 104 USAF Spad crewmen were killed in combat and according to Wikipedia (not the most reliable source I know) 150 Skyraiders were downed in combat and 191 total were lost (USAF only mind you) during the war. Truly heroes that flew these birds, both USAF and USN

Both the North American SNJ/AT-6 and the Vultee BT-13 were used to construct the Kate replicas. The rear monocoque and tail from a BT-13 were grafted to the rear fuselage bulkhead of a Texan and the entire fuselage was stretched. A new canopy, wingtips, wingroot fairings and a 3rd seat were also added to approximate the original appearance of the aircraft. Power is provided by a 600hp P&W R-1340. This aircraft is part of the CAF's "Tora, Tora, Tora" demonstration group.

Excellent pic, I sure as hell hope you were not planning on flying that day.
I flew on a twin prop puddle hopper in Ark. for a jobn during a lightning storm, and when I got off the plane they used the seat to make icecream cones, SERIOUS PUCKER FACTOR

Written on 05/18/2018 by Bill Gardner

Mike - thanks for the suggestion on the video - scary stuff. I agree with you 100%. It will come down to the best software and the best hackers.

I've rarely seen a photo of any military aircraft uploaded to FA's site that garnered and elicited so many first person former pilot accounts!!!

My thanks to those who have contributed their stories and personal experiences while flying a Sabreliner!

If my memory serves me correctly, the earlier Air Force versions used the wings of the F-86. And many of them didn't have an autopilot. The ones that did were often found at major command headquarters. In the 1970s, T-39 flight training for Air Force pilots was done at Scott Air Force Base (at least it was for me). Flight Safety International provided the ground school and simulator training before one flew at Scott AFB.

Written on 05/18/2018 by drjazzman48

Loved this plane. Talk about solid! You could walk out on the wing and sit and it would not flex. Armor around the cockpit was unbelievable. The air force version flew support for dust off missions in Southeast Asia. Don't think they lost one.
