Piper PA-31-310 Navajo used for skydiving:

I LIKE it.  :wub:

So do I. Unfortunately it no longer has it though, it's just all over white with black rego now, rather boring  :angry:

It flew close by to me today while I was looking at Flightradar24 so I did a rego search and that pic was among the others of it being plain white.  :lol:

There was no tongue on the other side, just drool  ;D   https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6004832

This is from a post on Facebook. He says he saw it quite recently in a salvage yard in Thailand. This salvage yard also has lots of other things.... so try here, I believe the settings are public so the link should work:

Beyond that, the relevant material:



We have a Bird Dog sporting not only an innovative "mouth" but also replete with nose art and a name. Pretty cool! I wonder about the lineage of this one. The artwork seems to be too "new" so I'm suspecting some private owner did this. Why, however, could be an interesting tale!  :thumbsup:

Sharks mouths can be tricky to do on cars but that looks like it could work.  I'd need to see a full side view to be sure though.

This is an unusual Lemon car in that it is a chevy powered by a chevy (albeit one painted in possibly THE best engine colour).

Not too sure about that engine installation, the #1 exhaust pipe looks like it's actually resting on the subframe!  :-\
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Sweet!! I was going to post that one. I didn't know they painted it however; my picture is of it old and faded.

(Flying) Crocodiles, anyone?





This Tupolew ANT-9 airliner was part of the campaign squadron named after Maxim Gorky and decorated under the emblem of the popular satirical magazine "Crocodile". It had received a wooden "nose" and even dorsal ridges. Note the crocodile paws, too.
