...I'm completely throwing away. I know Cyrus was clearly refering to the Sopwith, but gained an unfair advantage by using a completely non-standard abbreviation (which is the best that can be said of "spot").

So we have Fred with 3 and Cyrus with 6, and there's 39 to decide upon...

....and I'm giving 39 to Cyrus. When I said "keep it short" I didn't mean "leave it ambiguous". SA2 is just as short as SAM.

Cyrus wins by 6 points!

Gokul never mentioned that the winner gets a free dinner with Penguino at Chuck E. Cheese. CONGRATS!

This was the best thread EVER, by far.

It was a good game.

I'm turning in my wings. I'm holding on too tight.

Gokul,
If you ever get a chance to get on base at WPAFB, there is an R&D hangar that has a lot of the original x-planes. It's free to get in and it's very cool. It's where the XB-70 is parked. Very cool indeed.

Fred, all the pics in this thread were taken at WPAFB, where I spent a good part of last saturday - it's an hour from home. It was my third trip there. And I went specifically for the new R&D wing which hadn't been there the last time I went. However, when I got there, around noon, I was told that all shuttles to the R&D wing were taken for the day! I'm supposed to get there when the gates open, if I want to have half of chance on a weekend...or so they say.

Anyway, I'll go back...sometime.

But then if y'all are game to have that PF gathering in Columbus (so far, Moonbear's up for it), we could head over to Dayton and spend some quality time, ogling.

You know...I will be spending a week or so at WPAFB sometime in November/December timeframe for some testing.

Aww man happened to be at 4am when all the planes that I knew came up and I was sound asleep. Had no chance of winning anyway . Another astounding thread though Gokul. Thanks.
