    Rediscovered an old book the other, one handed down from my older brother. The Observer Bbook of Aircraft, from sometime in the sixties.

    I used to pour over this book when I was a kid, (and an older one from the fifties which unfortunately I can't find at the moment)

    So I thought I'd scan some of the silhouettes and see how many you can get. So, in no particular order,

    No1.


    No2.


    No3


    No4


    No5


    No6.


    |No7


    No8


    No9


    No10


    A virtual biscuit (Hob-Nob mind you), to the one with the most.

    Very impressive! 9.9/10

    (The Vigilante was listed as the A3J-1, book written before it entered service)

    Thought the F-106 might catch someone out, obviously not.
