    In Sunday's (Norfolk) Virginian Pilot was a silhouette puzzle of some of the aircraft owned by Jerry Yagen of the Military Aviation Museum, in Virginia Beach. How many can you name ? Here's a hint.... # 46 is a P-51

    I'll post the answers in a day or two

    32) Hawker Hurricane
    34) Mig-1 or Mig-3
    38) Ju-52
    41) B-25
    45) Yak-3 or Yak-9

    54) de Haviland Chipmonk
    56) T-28

    OK, I'm officially PO'd! I wrote down what all but three of 'em are, then typed them out in a reply. The site said I was not authorized to perform this function and wiped it all out! Damn stupid computers!

    Cherry Blossom: You done good too. 52. La-9.

    Cornell: If at first you don't succeed.......

    No one has hit #31 yet. Wonder why ?
