    It was the Optica's appearance in the 1980's sci-fi film 'slipstream' that first brought this wonderfully eccentric British contraption to my attention.

    I just don't understand how all you prop-lovers can leave out the MiG-3:

    P-51? Spitfire? Bah!

    (shame the war-time Soviet Union couldn't provide it with a good engine... or better production techniques and materials)

    Wow! A MiG-3 flyable! Any more photos related to flyable MiG-3/7?
    The truth usually between two extremes, the key is when and where.

    That is a Crusader. I think you meant to say X-32, rather than X-35. It resembles both the Corsair and Crusader. I liked this pic because it showed the Y-rack. The same rack was mountable on either side with the rail assembly adjusted accordingly. One side angled upwards while the drogue side angled downwards to keep it from obstructing a2a refueling.

    It's otherwise a great shot but the different racks on each side bother my sense of aesthetics. Should be a Y-rack on the other side too!

    The Crusader and Corsair have always been underrated I think. Here's a render(?!) of the former found via Google Images:

    hmm yes Indeed, I meant F-8 Crusader and the X-32 being the modern day equivelant. Surely you must love the X-32 as well

    I disagree strongly, as all but a few two seaters look like a hot chick who is pregnant.

    That is one of the worst J-20 angles IMO.

    Yeah, J-20 has some good angles but that isn't one of them heh.
