    Close enough ! Ercoupe in the early years, then Aircoupe in the later years.

    Over to you.

    This B-26G played a key role in the development of a new USAF airplane. What was the development goal of this B-26, why was it important to the new plane, and for what new airplane(s). (Only one needed...there were three different planes using the B-26 testing)

    This is interesting. I found info on a XB26H with the tandem landing gear, but with different (or mistaken) BuNos:

    XB-26H: one experimental aircraft, 44-28221, with zero-track tandem landing gear.

    Before 468221 was a XB-26H, it WAS a B-25G. So the tandem or bicycle landing gear apparently is what distinguished this aircraft. Now why was it supporting this arrangement? What drove this design?? And name the aircraft this XB-25H helped out in design...:)

    I'm guessing the B-47 Stratojet.

    The wings were too thin for landing gear and the fuselage slim lines would be ruined (and the bomb bay made smaller) by using side-by-side gear sets.

    Heres a new one:

    I would say either a Mig-1 or a Mig-3 that was captured and sent to Japan.
    The radio mast is in a different spot on my Mig-3 picture than it is on your Mig-3 picture so that is why I am not certain.

    PS Skunk you don't have to be disgusting ! Some of us like to eat while we are on the computer !!!!
