In my non-stop search for the latest adrenalin rush I need to match up planes and biscuits that share the same name.

I've only been able to come up with Lincoln and Viscount so far. Over to you guys...

They are called cookies.

Biscuits are what you pour gravy on.

Hardly a nibble, but I think 'tis worthy.

If ever there was a name for an Italian Fighter it had to be or should have been the Garabaldi,

or Fly Pie to the educated palette..


Was an Aircraft Carrier though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Bit of a stretch but might the cheeky manouverable Spit be a 'Jammy Dodger?'

Beyond that I'm stumped.

But! You might want to check out www.NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown.com (http://www.NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown.com) as they clearly orbit the same planet as you my Dorset chum.

Their mission statement.

"Well I think we should all sit down and have a nice cup of tea, and some biscuits, nice ones mind you. Oh and some cake would be nice as well. Lovely."

Clearly one biscuit short of a pack.

One of my very favoutite sites - but I don't want to cheat...

I'm wondering if I could have Robert Stanford Tuc as a pilot for half a point...

This is a little scarey to look at, but has a nice biscuit/strategic bombing tie-in.

Ooh ya Beauty...

T'bloody Yorkshiremen, it's inevitable they'd have their own biscuit type;

York Biscuits. (http://thefoody.com/baking/yorkbiscuits.html)

Avros seem to have a thing for naming their a/c after biscuits, off to look for a Lancaster biscuit. If Yorkshire's got one we must have one too...

E that's a great site, I'm on a roll.

Empire Biscuits (http://thefoody.com/baking/empirebiscuits.html)

For those having trouble visualising Stathem's discovery; behold the Avro York biscuit/transport fusion.

And of course the DC3 was known as the Biscuit Bomber http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Okay, I'm pretty sure this doesn't count but here in Japan we had a bar of chocolate named "Vessel in the fog". A floatplane like the H8K counts as a vessel, doesn't it? And a bar of chocolate is similar calorifically to a biccie, is it not?

No one knows of a plane called the "chocolate chippie" do they

...No, but there was a Bristol Brownie (http://www.britishaircraft.co.uk/aircraftpage.php?ID=160)

Although being of, erm, American origin I don't think Brownie classes as a proper biscuit. Can't imagine dunking one in a good cup of tea.

You haven't lived until you've dunked a brownie in a cuppa tea.
