Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I live in Houston by Johnson Space Center so I see all kind of stuff coming in and out of NASA's Ellington Field and also flying out of Lone Star Flight Museum out of Galveston. Typically I've either known ahead of time what's flying around or been able to figure it out, but this one that just flew over my place has me stumped. Unfortunately it didn't show up on FlightAware, and now I'm kind of at a loss since I only saw it for about 20 seconds.
- It was vaguely reminiscent of a Blackburn Bucaneer: similar wing placement, definite T-tail, similar canopy location and shape, similar nose shape. I'm thinking it's from basically the same time period.
- Wing leading edge seemed unusual--I could swear the sweep curved back from the root then back straighter again toward the tip. Almost like this graph. There were two protrusions underwing about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way out that looked like they might be fixed external tanks.
- Wing trailing edge looked straight or pretty low sweep.
- Looked like a single jet exhaust under the tail. I think the stabilizer section overhung the nozzle. I don't clearly recall the intake geometry, might've been either side at the wing root?
Really appreciate any help with this. It tooks me months to find the Almirante Brown class destroyers after I first saw pictures of them and that drove me bonkers.
