Gentlemen, I think that we may be looking at a MiG 17.

What I hadn't noticed is that there are three fences on the wing of the aircraft in the initial photo, the one nearest the fuselage not being particularly conspicuous.

Also the outboard fence stops, not unreasonably, at the aileron.

Shown quite well here:

Attachment 70079

And as far as that engine is concerned:

Attachment 70081



Apologies for brevity but it's past my bedtime. :blush:

Quick PS: Bruce, see the caption to the first photo in the second link.

No need to upset your circadian rhythm over this stuff. ;)

Circadian rhythm long since shot to bits!

Beautiful and historic.

Dead sexy.

BigV 04-02-2020 02:16 PM

yeah, but what about the plane Griff?

Griff 04-02-2020 02:17 PM

Howard is at least dead.

Maybe, but Howard was pretty sneaky. :unsure:

This looks like a big family...

Speaking of Howard Hughes, I found this while mindlessly internet surfing:

Just one of Kermit Weeks' 140 airplanes.

Like owning a horse not allowed out of its stall. Damn shame. :(

Just passing north of Oxford as I type.
