Round-Out
The famed G-HUNT moved to the USA becoming at first N50972 and now flies from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, with the EAA Aviation Foundation as N611JR in the colours of Neville Duke’s record breaking WB188. It is seen here at Oshkosh in 1992 with its US identity worn on the lower fin.
Низкая надежность истребителей "Авиа" S-199 была постоянной "головной болью" израильских механиков и двигателистов. Механик 101-й эскадрильи ВВС Израиля осматривает двигатель истребителя

Twin Pioneer c/n 582 started off life with the Royal Malaysian Air Force in 1963. Now, somewhat forlorn, in British Columbia, a new life awaits.
Details of damage to the starboard tailplane and fin.
Denes Bernad of Concord, Ontario, Canada, has supplied photograph of Bulgarian D.VII. In late 1918, the Royal Bulgarian Air Force received 12 D.VIIs, but they arrived too late to see action. After the Armistice, all but one were ordered to be destroyed by the Allied Control Commission, as part of Bulgaria’s demilitarisation. In the early 1920s, the survivor was rebuilt as an unarmed, two-seater and registered B-BIXP. Painted overall cream with black cowling the aircraft is illustrated without registration but with black (?) four-leaf clover design in the wheel centre.

View of Short ‘G-Boat’ G-AFCI ‘Golden Hind'. Extant until the mid-1950s, it nearly survived into a time when it would have been preserved.
