RC-Warbirds_Calendar_June2012_1920x1200

From Wikipedia: The Bell X-1, originally designated XS-1, was a joint NACA-U.S. Army/US Air Force supersonic research project built by Bell Aircraft. Conceived in 1944 and designed and built over 1945, it eventually reached nearly 1,000 mph (1,609 km/h) in 1948. A derivative of this same design, the Bell X-1A, having greater fuel capacity and thus longer engine-burn time, exceeded 1,600 mph (2,574 km/h) in 1954. The X-1 was the first aircraft to exceed the speed of sound in controlled, level flight, and was the first of the so-called X-planes, an American series of experimental aircraft designated for testing of new technologies and usually kept highly secret.

April 2011 Desktop Wallpaper

Product PictureApril 2012 features the picture of a Douglas A-1 Skyraider taken during the 2007 Top Gun event in Lakeland Florida.
From Wikipedia: The Douglas A-1 Skyraider (formerly AD) was an American single-seat attack aircraft that saw service between the late 1940s and early 1980s. It became a piston-powered,propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age, and was nicknamed Spad, after a French World War I fighter. The Skyraider had a remarkably long and successful career, even inspiring its straight-winged, slow-flying, jet-powered successor, the A-10 Thunderbolt II.
It was operated by the United States Navy (USN), the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and the United States Air Force (USAF), and also saw service with the British Royal Navy, the French Air Force, the Air Force of the Republic of Vietnam (VNAF), and others.

March 2012–Desktop Wallpaper

March 2012 features the picture of a F-86 Sabre in the colors of the United States Air Force Skyblazers taken during the 2007 Top Gun event in Lakeland Florida.

 

RC-Warbirds_Calendar_March2012_1920x1200

From Wikipedia: The North American F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as America’s first swept wing fighter which could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War. Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in the Korean War, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last active operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan and Italy. Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

February 2012–Desktop Wallpaper

February 2012 features the picture of a scratch build Polikarpov I-16 Type 24.
We took this picture during one of our trips to Germany at the yearly Jet & Warbird meet of the MFC Dachau near Munich.

 

RC-Warbirds_Calendar_February2012_1920x1200

 

From Wikipedia: The Polikarpov I-16 was a Soviet fighter aircraft of revolutionary design; it was the world’s first cantilever-winged monoplane fighter with retractable landing gear. The I-16 was introduced in the mid-1930s and formed the backbone of the Soviet Air Force at the beginning of World War II.  The diminutive fighter, nicknamed “Ishak” (“donkey”) by Soviet pilots, prominently featured in the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Battle of Khalkhin Gol and the Spanish Civil War-where it was called the Rata (“rat”) by the Nationalists or Mosca (“fly”) by the Republicans. The Finnish nickname for I-16 was Siipiorava (“Flying Squirrel”).
