Time for something just a little different. I will post a picture of a mystery aircraft, and would like you to tell me what it is. This game will not end until I run out of aircraft. Given the number of bizarre and obscure flying machines out there, the game won't end anytime soon.

This light sport aircraft is a new clean slate design from a French firm. It's main claim to fame is the ability to take-off and land on land, sea, and snow.

That would be a LISA Akoya, correct?
Right in one! While two prototypes of the Akoya have flown to date, the aircraft has not been certified by any civil aviation agency yet.

In case it wasn't immediately obvious from the profile, this prototype is a stealth technology demonstrator.

The Boeing Bird of Prey, though they should have flipped the wings around to make it look like a Klingon Bird of Prey
Bingo. The Boeing Bird of Prey is a stealth advanced technology demonstrator. I believe the prototype now resides in the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base museum.

This warbird saw extensive use in the Pacific theater of WWII

Consolidated PBY Catalina

It's bigger than it looks... crew of 10. Unusual design, also.
That's it. The PBY Catalina was a multi role aircraft used for everything from anti-submarine to search and rescue. As a fun little aside, an aviation museum near me is actively restoring one to airworthy status.

Yet another technology demonstrator, in this case to show the promise of pure flying wing designs.

Northrop N-9M
You've got it! The Northrop N-9M was built as a demonstrator to prove the aerodynamics of a flying wing for what would later become the YB-36 and much later the B-2. Sadly, the last remaining example of the N-9M crashed approximately 6 months ago, killing its pilot and sole occupant.

I have a slight snarl in my schedule, so the next aircraft will be posted this weekend.

    ((We'll see if my 'net let's me post... At least for me, for anything I post here, I kind of incorporate most characters from the shows (and what I can find of the games, never played any of them), though I (and, this is just me) try to keep the postings here in a more current-day technology and try to make up characters as I go. I suppose what characters you choose to use depends on if what you write has anything to do with any of the longer-format stories, or if it's a stand-alone. But, yeah, feel free to ask anything, and someone will get back to ya when someone is in here (it seems a majority are US-based, though there are a few 'across the pond').

    ((IRL: Before the night is over, think I'm going to take the laptop for a little wardriving through the building (the laptop is connected as the modem right now)... just tried some Win7 pings, average is over a second, short: 213ms, long: 2909ms. Planning to take care of local ISP when the property tax refund gets here (and hoping for a second Stimulus Check). I can kind of get here with the Obamaphone, but it's nowhere near what the tower or the tablet or even the laptop are capable of.
