@ttyymmnn Ha, my wife and Amelia Earheart share a birthday.
@skyfire77 I knew somebody would catch that, and figured it would be you.
@ttyymmnn Especially being I did the same shtick on Oppo That Was with the Flights of Fantasy series back in September.
That's a nice pic of the construction though, I had no idea MiG built planes like Morgan does their three-wheelers!

That MiG-31 in mid-construction looks like they're building a Blackbird.
Just ran across this

I would love to know what this was supposed to be, because I can't make heads or tails of it. Is that a reentry body (if so, it's heug!)? Are they shipping a ICBM/Launcher by sea (Why the Cone of Shame then?)?
@vincentmalamute Skyrocket! That aircraft eventually ended up being the Tigercat. I wrote a piece about that a/c back on old Oppo/Wingspan. I'm in the process of reposting my old Wingspan pieces here and on DT, so maybe I'll do that one next.

@ttyymmnn I was kinda thinking I could sneak an unknown past you. I should've known I'd fail. Can't remember how or where I ran across that F5F - was new to me.
