Heinkel He-162A in Post War Service

Turkish Air Force He-162A  - Malatya Erhaç Airport March 1946
In late 1945 an Austrian business man approached a contact in Ankara with an offer to supply 24 new He-162’s with spares from a hitherto undiscovered underground factory in Austria. The aircraft had been crated ready for shipment at the end of the war, and their existence had remained a closely guarded secret. A price was agreed upon, and the crates were duly shipped to the Black Sea Port of Zonguldak and then by rail to Malatya Air Base, arriving in January 1946.
The aircraft were assembled here under the direction of German and Czech engineers. Assembly was straight forward, with few problems, the aircraft having been designed for swift construction by a relatively unskilled labour force, with the first flight taking place in February 1946. The aircraft were found to be a delight to fly by the experienced Turkish pilots, although several were lost due to the same mechanical and structural failures highlighted by both German and Allied Test Pilots.
The aircraft served with the Turkish Air Force until the early 1950’s when they were replaced by American aircraft, at which point the remaining aircraft were scrapped

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Project High Force

High Force was the code name given to the RAF tests of the German Wasserfall Anti-Aircraft Missile system in early 1946 – High Force is a waterfall in County Durham.
Following Germanys defeat in May 1945, in addition to V-2 Rockets, the British also managed to acquire a number of Wasserfall Anti-Aircraft Missiles from sites in Northern Germany where they had been delivered from Peenemünde for use. These missiles were taken back to Britain for evaluation, as RAF personnel had soon recognised the potential of these for use against high flying bomber streams.
A small test facility was built at Spadeadam in northern Cumbria, as the Spadeadam area was remote and largely uninhabited and known as Spadeadam Waste. Spadeadam was chosen as a launch site because of its isolation combined with nearby infrastructure capable of supporting it with such as a plentiful water supply, access to the National Grid and road connections. The site was known as RAF Spadeadam.

The site was controlled by the RAF. The missiles were assembled on site, using both British and German personnel, and a number of launches were successfully carried out, with one successfully destroying a Lancaster target drone.
The information gathered was then passed via the Air Ministry to British Companies developing indigenous systems. In 1955 the site at Spadeadam became the Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile Test Centre and extra faciliies were built for the Blue Streak missile project, before reverting to RAF control in 1976.

Fred

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Liberty Ship- CONVAIR POGO training platform

Sandiego89, 1/700 scale

Even with the revised flight controls, the unique landing configuration of the production version of the POGO proved challenging. A cheap and reliable training ship was desired before sending pilots to the fleet.  A Liberty ship was pulled from the ghost fleet in Orange, Texas and was sent to the yards for the fitting of a flight deck aft, and a small landing platform forward.
