17dec1903, I could be wrong, but it might've been because Eastern bought out this aircraft from the Patriots back in 2018 (?), causing the logo to be removed. Just a guess

Written on 17/01/2022 by Andre Blanchard

Uh, oh. Now I find myself having to make a very difficult choice. On the one hand, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the half-century old leadership of the Reno Air Racing Association (RARA), the photo experts who work at Jetphotos, the editors of Aviation Database, the contributors and editors of Wikipedia, the Egyptian Air Force, and the owners of this aircraft all say it is a Yak-11. On the other hand, someone with the initials a.a. says it is NOT a Yak-11 and to prove it the person says "I don't know what it is." Hmmm. This is a difficult decision for me to make. What should I do? Should I believe the FAA, the RARA, the folks at Jetphotos, the Egyptians, the owner, the people at Aviation Database, and the Wikipedia article about Yak-11s (which even has a picture of this very same aircraft shown in the article); OR should I believe this anonymous expert named a. a. who has offered such compelling proof ("I don't know what it is")? I have to say, I'm really stuck here. Which should I believe? I gotta say, "a.a." has really made a strong case. Let me think for a bit. (One one-thousand, two one-thousand, ...). Nope, I think I'm going to stay with what the FAA, the RARA, Jetphotos, Wikipedia, Aviation Database, the Egyptian AF, and the owners all say. This is a Yak-11. The P&W R2800 power plant is not "original equipment,' but the whole world other than a.a. says this is a Yak-11 ... so I'm going to go along with the whole world. This is a Yak-11.

Jason Noyes,

You are actually wrong. It is a CH53E, not a CH53K.

The side pods are different on the new K model.

I was SAR Aircrew at CGAS San Fran, good ole days of HH-52, 1979-1982. Looking at that crew member, I wonder how difficult it must be with such small space to work in. I still wonder why CG stopped with amphibious helicopters, I personally had 3 rescues that could not have been done without water landing, (unless Co-pilot got wet, but we did not always have a Co-pilot) I get it they now have swimmers, but to me that increases a risk and decreases the usable payload. Semper Paratus!

@Mark Thank you for your remark. I put exact type of this aircraft in the comment. Unfortunately, Flightaware uses only ICAO type designators for specification of aircraft type, and "ME09" code is common for all Bf-109 and Me-109 versions produced both by Messerschmitt and Hispano, and Flightaware uses the name "MESSERSCHMITT Bf-109" for "ME09" ICAO type designator...

Written on 17/01/2022 by WalAndPl

Dear Paul, The problem is that Flightaware uses ICAO type designators to identify the aircraft type, which are much less detailed for military aircrafts than for civil airliners. In this case, the ICAO code "HAWK" is common to the various versions of Hawk / Goshawk aircraft manufactured by Hawker Siddeley, British Aerospace, BAe Systems, Mc Donnell Douglas, Boeing and others. When publishing a photo, we can only enter "HAWK" to indicate the type, and Flightaware automatically assigns the caption "Boeing Goshawk" and we have no influence on that (that's why most of the photos of Red Arrows planes on Flightaware have the title "Boeing Goshawk" ...). We can only give the exact name of the version and manufacturer in the comment (what I did), or not specify the type of aircraft at all ...

Does anyone know why the Patriots don't have their name or insignia on this airplane? Why would they paint the airplane in Patriots colors and then not advertise that it's their airplane?

Written on 17/01/2022 by 17dec1903

Anyone know what those devices are sticking out from the engine cowlings?

Written on 17/01/2022 by chugheset

I hate to get in the middle of the model debate but I have to agree the sponsons on this one look a little different from those on the K-model.

I don't know who did the caption, but Boeing does NOT own BAE Systems.

Written on 17/01/2022 by Paul Wisgerhof

Not a Messerschmitt Bf-109. It is a Hispano HA-1112-M1L Buchon - a licensed version built in Spain in 1958 with a Rolls-Royce Merlin 500 engine (because the Daimler-Benz 601 engines were no longer available).

Fantastic picture, Jake. Phoenix is my hometown and I always love the unique copper color of the ATC Tower. As others have noted, the 747 will always been Queen of the Skies. And PHX will ALWAYS be Sky Harbor International.

That is our very own "Maid in the Shade" B25 from the Commemorative Airforce's Airbase Arizona! Go to AZCAF.org for more. It served in WWII out of Corsica and flew several combat missions. We take her around the country throughout the summer where folks can come tour through her and even purchase a ride!
