Thanks BG, a quick repost of the rules and I'll be back shortly with the stats.

<span class="ev_code_yellow">
Rules
------

1. When a person answers a question and it is confirmed as correct by the poster of the
question, they then have the floor and are expected to ask the next question.

(You are only allowed to ask a question if the above rule has been adhered to.)

2. If a question isn't asked within 24 hours then it will be assumed that the person
supposed to ask the question has a problem, then the floor will be made open for anyone
to ask the next question to allow the quiz to continue. The same applies if an answer is given and confirmation is not forthcoming within 24 hours

3. Question are to be related to World War II air warfare.

4. If a multiple part question is asked, only one point will be awarded for the answer.

Guidelines
----------

1. To allow fluid running of the quiz, if you answer a question correctly but cannot post
a new question or won't be able to check for answers to your new question, please ask
someone else to post the next question. This doesn't mean you can't go to work or bed but
please be considerate when possible.

2. Please don't abuse the above guideline by just answering questions and then passing it
to someone else all the time, instead of asking one yourself (see rule 1).

3. If you have posted a question and it becomes obvious that nobody knows the answer, it is customary to offer a hint or clue.

4. When posting picture questions, it is recommended that you do not direct link. Use
something like 'Photobucket' to host your pictures (most people can see pictures linked
from there, whereas some other sites are not visible globally) and don't forget to disguise the name of the picture.

Thanks.

Here's another rare gunsight from the collection at Castle Jungmann.

No secret about this one--it's a USN Mark V (ignore the wood). Actual description on the casting--U.S. Navy Bureau of Ordnance Aircraft Telescope Gunsight Mark V Mod 1. What it is is not the question.

The question is--as far as I've been able to tell, it was only used on one aircraft at one gun position. And only fairly early on in the war--it was upgraded later to another sight. For full credit, name the plane and the gun position.

Looks suspiciously like this SBD-2 sight, although I don't know what Mark it is, and I somehow doubt it will be that easy.

I guess it's time for some clues.

The airplane is in the game--but it's not flyable.

There are pictures of the sight and the gun position on the Web--but Google won't find them.

negative sir; note that the Schweitzer is a tandem, this is side-by-side

good guess though!

3 hints:

1)the marine designation is close

2)it had great control "harmony"

3)its mechanics may very well have been called "tuners"

Daiichidoku
11-23-2009, 02:23 PM
lol G-30 is the "Czech Master Resin" model kit part #

but yes, it is a LNE-1, AKA Pratt-Read PR-G1

http://www.museumofflight.org/...tt-read-pr-g1-glider (http://www.museumofflight.org/aircraft/pratt-read-pr-g1-glider)

In 1942, the Pratt-Read Piano Company was awarded a contract to build 100 two-place training gliders for the U.S. Navy. Despite initial manufacturing difficulties, the Pratt-Read PR-G1 was a robust glider with a fabric-covered steel tube fuselage with exquisitely crafted wooden wings and tail. The PR-G1's were sold as surplus after World War II, and in the early 1950s a couple of them were acquired for a daring investigation of high altitude weather and flight conditions called the Sierra Wave Project, based near the Sierra Nevada mountains in Bishop, California. The inherent strength of the Pratt-Read made it an ideal platform in the high winds and extreme turbulence encountered in the program. In 1952, project pilots Larry Edgar and Harold Klieforth soared to 44,255 feet in a Pratt-Read, setting a new world altitude record for two-place gliders. The record endured for an incredible 54 years, until Steve Fossett and Einar Enevoldson flew over the Argentinean Andes to 50,671 feet in their modified DG-500, the Perlan glider.

The Museum's Pratt-Read, now at the Restoration Center, is undergoing restoration and will be finished to represent the U.S. Navy LNE-1 variant.

Operation 'Z'?

just to show my line of thinking as I am no botanist.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

It's another flower.
And it is not necessary to write it down in characters but a transcripted version is enough.
(take for example the well known kamikaze plane: instead of Cherry Blossom the word ?ka would be sufficient and not ??, otherwise it would be too difficult I guess. Even for me 'cause all these Japanese characters look like chop sticks and noodles.)

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Kikusui means floating chrysanthemum.

A bizarre episode at the end of WWII:

During the final weeks before the end of WW2, the Japanese put into action brave
and desperate measures. Among them were several one-way Special Attack
missions against Allied airfields on Okinawa - from which American medium bombers
were attacking Japanese villages in Kyushu with great fury.

The Japanese used transport aircraft and obsolete bombers to carry specially trained
'shock troops' to the Allied bases at night. Most of the Japanese planes were shot
down on the way to their targets, but the few survivors were deliberately crashed onto
American runways, spilling their cargo of soldiers armed with hand grenades and
machine guns. Their mission was to blow-up or damage as many Allied bombing
aircraft as possible. Among the Japanese, there were never any survivors.

Uncle Fester....I mean, Jackie Coogan enlisted in the US Army in March 1941. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he requested a transfer to US Army Air Forces as a glider pilot because of his civilian flying experience. After graduating from glider school, he was made a Flight Officer and he volunteered for hazardous duty with the 1st Air Commando Group. In December 1943, the unit was sent to India. He flew British troops, the Chindits, under General Orde Wingate on 5 March 1944, landing them at night in a small jungle clearing 100 miles behind Japanese lines in the Burma campaign.

"A flyable Halford engine was delivered to Lockheed in mid November of 1943. The de Havilland-built Halford H.1B turbojet had a bench thrust of 3000 pounds at 10,500 rpm and an installed thrust of 2460 pounds at 9500 rpm. On November 17, 1943, while the H.1B engine installation in the XP-80 was undergoing ground testing, both intake ducts collapsed, and the ingestion of debris damaged the engine. While waiting a replacement engine, the ducts were strengthened. The British selflessly rushed over a replacement engine which had been intended for the number 2 Vampire fighter. The replacement engine arrived on December 28 and was promptly installed in the XP-80. The XP-80 was finally ready for its maiden flight"

Believe it's Bielefeld railway viaduct, bombed 14 March 1945.

"The No. 617 Squadron RAF Avro Lancaster of Squadron Leader CC Calder dropped the first Grand Slam bomb from 16,000 ft (4,900 m) on the Bielefeld viaduct.[2] More than 100 yards of the Bielefeld viaduct collapsed through the earthquake bomb effect[9] of the Grand Slam and Tallboy bombs of No. 617 Squadron. No aircraft were lost."[10]

Close but not there yet.....there is a specific piece of equipment these were designed for airplane to use. If the airplane is mounting these, it must have other piece of equipment installed. If it does not have these, then it cannot have the equipment installed either.

No it is not the propeller or the propellers pitch and balance weights.

It is a balance weight that mounts on the propeller for this equipment.

Here is a hint...

Nope, it is specifically tied to those propeller weights and nothing else.

If the weights are present, the equipment is in use. If the weights are not present, the equipment must be removed.

If you guys don't get it by tonight, I will post the answer. I hope you find it interesting and fun.

Erhöhte Notleistung

Is getting colder, there are no common components unlike the Alkohol-Einspritzung systems.


Gasoline cooling. I beleive?


Erhöhte Notleistung is just a plain ol'manifold pressure increase. Rather than replace all the KG's and redesign the unit, they just fooled the pressure regulator portion into thinking it was working at a lower pressure. This way they raised the pressure. Of course, more fuel was needed to burn to get more power but not for cooling.

C3-Einspritzung used fuel for cooling which is yet another system used by the BMW801 series but only on ground attack and bomber variants.
