What aircraft is this?

  1. Aug 24, 2014 #1
    I found this model among a few that a family member used to have, but I can't seem to find out exactly what it is.

    It looks like some type of ramjet UAV from the late 60's or 70's. Any ideas?

    ps. See image 4 of 5.

    It should look like this:

    I would not have found it, had it not been for my years of experience in the Where's That Landmark thread.

    Ha! I thought Fuzzyfelt was going to hold the record, with 6 weeks. It's been over a year since I posted the last landmark. :bugeye:

    hmmm.... Maybe they want another clue. :rolleyes:

    Do they still have the 747 water-slide?

    I've heard of the place, but I actually don't know where McMinville is.
    Though I know it's closer than Kansas.

    I still haven't been able to identify the ladies in that picture in the landmark thread. I will get it one of these days. Another clue would be nice.:approve:

    BTW Always yield to unknown objects on the highway.
