    Graft an f5 cockpit onto a tu-154 tail to test your indigenous ejection seat? What’s Farsi for red neck?

    The aviation world is littered with bizarre hybrids to test concepts quickly and cost effectively. It's good engineering practise - fail fast, fail often, and learn what you can.

    As I was scrolling down this thread, I recognised the modded B17 picture from its tail alone. But that, Birlinn? What is it?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    It would just spit the pilot out………


    All that teak looks marvellous but I'd be scared to step on board.
