Mystery Photo #10

Mystery 10

OK, have at it.

Update, Feb. 3: Well for the first time we stumped readers, though Normand Hamel was 90% correct. This is the Jetcraft Mystery Jet, an attempt to make a business jet out of the Vampire. Michel Merluzeau of G2 Solutions gets credit for bringing this one to us.

  1. My eyes are not as young as they use to be. I cannot tell if it is a nose gear of the F-8, like UKair said, or a tail gear from a large tail dragger like a C-47 or C-46.

  2. Mystery? Davis-Monthan, obviously. And not, it’s not a Crusader hulk, it’s a T-38.

  3. Oh, wait I get it: the “mystery photo” is the tiny one. I can’t get it to enlarge, but I’ll guess its a Skyraider tailwheel.

  4. Rudy Hillinga Why is filling out these two lines a new equirement every time I write somethingScott?

    What a waste, especially all that never used and always soon obsoleted
    military junk!

  5. The Harrier’s nosewheel ( and some other proposals ) has a pronounced “elbow”.
    But the “taste of design” for harrier and the vampire are close imho. so, a british plane?

  6. It reminds me of the Learjet 23, which in its initial incarnation used the basic structure of the Swiss P-16 ground-attack fighter aircraft.
