Xiaotangshan / Datangshan

Hi,

I just published an article on the China Aviation Museum, but in this particular case I think it might be useful to do a 'photo page' as I think this might be helpful to ID the airframes - although my images are not always top quality :-)

What are your thoughts about that?

Regards,

H.

Hi, By the way. Does anybody know what this is? It has faded US roundels and somehow the airplane looks familiar but I have no clue on the type. It was situated on the far North side of the museum in the "dump" aerea. Apparently it was "rebuild" for a movie to look like a American F-84. Think they d...

All, also very well visible via Google Earth on the coordinates Correct, but the XTW-4 obviously has been moved and seems to be without engines now. And as it is now placed next to the preserved Be-6 I guess it is not operational anymore. As a side note: The Be-6s seem to be called "Qingliu" by the...

And the last one; Be-6 "9043", which was standing right next to the XTW-4. Second example of type that day as another is on display at the Naval museum in Qingdao.

I thought this one was fun too; it is supposed to be a XTW-4, a so called WIGE (Wing In Ground Effect). It was standing some 800 meters south of the SH5 platform. Unfortunately no markings were carried. (and yes I know, pocket size cameras are not good for those distant shots :-( ) http://img219.ima...

Oh my.... somehow I missed the "unknown ones" on the French ULM register... Note that these are the "real" registrations, while the F-Jxxx -of which a few made it to the list above- are only their radio call-sign, which might stay with the owner as the aircraft is sold - as shown with F-JFBQ. For th...

Flight Design CT production list

Hi, With all the excitement on the indian air force CTSW :-) , this might be the time to get my list with CTs open for discussion. Any corrections etc are welcome! Note that there is much conflict regarding the exact sub-types, but in general I have assumed that no CT's are produced after 2002, no C...
