I bet it couldn't RTB and land with only one wing, though:-
The F-15 has endured because its design was years ahead of its time, as is evident by the fact that an Israeli pilot once landed one with only one wing.www.businessinsider.com
Well, not without an IAF wonk on the stick, anyway...
That’s a bit impressive.
meanwhile at the bat cave....
I was hoping to get the navy blue on today but as a result of necking 4 champagne and raspberry cocktails, I wasn’t functioning until after lunch so I’ve timed out today. All I got done was the rest of the green components. The more eagle eyed will spot that the flaps were blue, as were the lower and upper intakes. I had to nick these parts and knock up two sets of flaps from the third Spad kit as you can’t get fcuking detol anywhere, which is what I use to strip paint. Bloody Covid manic shopping is even affecting the modelling.
Should get started on the first piece of weathering in the week. Won’t get any done tonight as I’ve just necked my first champagne and raspberry vodka cocktail
blows your head off - deffo worth a go and a guaranteed knicker dropper. Just saying.
