or a plane that looks like henry fonda. I assume it is a catch 22 reference.
Major, Major Major Major is a character in it.

A plane that has the same name as it's maker.
Like a hawker hawk?
Close but is it right?

Oh well, thought the movie allusion might make it a little harder to fathom the answer, but ...

Graeme's got it!

There you go. Thanks Sean.

Tell me two aircraft named after arachnids. There may be more than two, but two spring to mind for me.

Northrop Black Widow and Northrop Scorpion? Something of a theme there, too ...

Yeah that is better. I like the lateral thinking there and both Northrop too.

OK, then, in that vein - where was it rumoured that Northrop had bought the mainwheels for the F-89 Scorpion?

Some diesel powered locomotives, to which they shared some oversized wheels.
That's why it was sometimes called “Stanley Steamer”.

Another footling question bites the dust ... my reference says the Atcheson, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, but that's more than close enough!

John, all yours.

Could that one be the Mikoyan/ Guervich Ye-8????
Looks almost like an early prototype for the Typhoons....

Dang, guess Nito got it right. Good job on that one, thought it might be obscure enough.

Over to you for the next question

Not Omega 1 and not 1940... little later

Hmmmmm, I have a pic of Omega 2, but that has monocoque (or at least covered) outriggers, not lattice....

Let me look some more.
