Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Christmas Quiz, December 19th

Recommended Posts

Aerosoft Annual Christmas Quiz

Yes, it is that time of year again. And yes you are getting that old. Time for our annual Christmas Quiz. Now last year we did often complex questions and we think Google got most of the answers right. So this year we’ll exclude any Googling and will simply ask you very simple questions like, what aircraft is this, what airline is this etc. If you think of a funny caption for the image you can also post that and when you make us laugh real loud you also get a free download.

Rules are simple, just as we are. The first to get the answer right wins a free download. To avoid one time zone to be always the first to answer we have a new system where the post is made visible at a random moment. The post will stay open for at least 24 hours. If in this period the correct answer has not been given it will stay open indefinitely.

Please note that if you won one of these contest you are out for the rest of the year. Please do not post to show your incredible skill (and that you are a total aircraft nerd). If you want to proof you are better then everybody else do a private message.

Please note that we have tried very hard to find the copyright holders for all these images but in some occasions that was just not possible.

Is it a plank of plywood? :glare_s:

Top edge is too long for the YF23, no strakes and fairings so not a F18 of any flavour, I guess it's a Raptor, too

yes, it's the horizontal stabilator of the F-22A Raptor.

Very expensive piece of plywood...

Um, yes Sir, the latest in avionics technology, as you can see here, we, uh, kinda snagged this one out of the local dump, it works, trust us, we're engineers ;)

Hay, don't think I'm joking - plywood is aerolastic, low consumable impact, easily repaired and has an extremely low radar reflectivity. Dunno how much USAF is paying per metre for the F22A, but I can do plywood for less than a million bucks a sheet...

It's a winner, I tell ya! :big_boss_s:

What a waste of good ply wood! Add roughly 30,000 brass screws, 2 Rolls Royce Merlins and we have a Mosquito, ideal for blasting round Europe at tree top level :lol:

Hello Folks,

Sadly no one got this one yet, all that you see is not black and white, maybe the geometry is not the white bit but the black bit. Thats a clue if ever. :)
