I am particularly excitited as I just visited the Ft. Worth Lockheed Production line yesterday, one of the original places built for cranking out Liberators. They had some amazing photos of it, and was an awesome sight. The entire mile long facility is now being used for F-35 production.
      I had an uncle that served on a B-24, I'd love to get one in his honor.

      • As a crew chief / tech sarge, my Dad went to school at both the Consolidated San Diego and Ft. Worth plants . In 1941, they rushed these guys through technical training pretty quick before sending them over on the Queen Mary to join up with their squads. His group was called Ted's Flying Circus after 34 year old Col. Ted Timberlake They went from Northern England to Libya then back to Northern England. Still considered one of the most famous missions was Polesti where they bombed the oil fields. But it was mainly a disaster for many B-24 crews as several got lost, several were shot down, etc. Lucky for me , my Dad returned home after 25 missions.

          Night fighter perhaps? Maybe that P-61 idea wasn't too far off.

                  • There was a Tennyson 2lt that was killed in Japan. There is a SBD Dauntless in a group picture. Google Tennyson WW2. Would really like an A-26 Invader. I've seen them race at Reno, and I liked Richard Dryfus landing one dead stick in the movie "Always". Thanks. Ron

                    • A-26 would be very cool. Phoenix Model is bringing out a balsa and ply A-26 in another month. Arf is about $450.00 and includes cnc machined LG. Need motors, esc's and servos to complete. Sold by Tower. I have a few Phoenix models and they're built like a brick sheet house.

                        As far as I have seen, nobody has addressed this hint from Alpha. I went back and read some, and nothing leaps out at me.

                        • Nothing leapt out at me either.

                          • I think his point is that there is a story behind it. Something famous. Not just a word association but something specific to pilot and plane. It has a story.

                                • Hope it's not the JH-7A flying leopard now talked about on RCG. Chinese fighter bomber from the 80's. Not virtuous IMO

                                  • Does anyone have the "code" names for past Freewing or FLRC projects? These are the only ones I've heard about.

                                    Project Hannibal - Freewing F-14D
                                    Project Regulus - Feewing A-10
                                    Project Virtue - Freewing A-4E/F

                                    Project Lelu - FlightLineRC F7F-3
                                    Project Evelyn? - FlightLineRC F8F-1
                                    Project Tennyson50 - ?

                                        • I think its an A-4, cause awhile ago when I was at Apollo , there was a guy with an A-4 and John was looking at it and measuring it and saying how this would be a great next Freewing jet .
