    Went flying again with Michael in his Mooney (thanks again Michael!). We saw this airplane at the firefighter base at Lancaster and we wondered what it is? Anybody know?

    ARGH! This is killing me. I've seen the plane, talked about the type of plane, read about the type of plane and, for the life of me, can't remember what the stupid thing is called!!!!!!

    I need another beer.

    LOL! It's funny looking, reminds me of a child's toy.

    Somebody please put Brian out of his misery and tell him (and me) what it is. ;)

    Diana,

    That's your Citabria. Don't you recognize it?

    Oh, you mean the plane in the big photo. I have no idea.

    Brian, glad you're OK, started to worry about you a bit. ;)

    Thanks for figuring it out for us. Wish there was some sort of prize we could give you. Oh, how bout a Citabria ride?

    ? Rules for Aircraft Identification -

    If it's weird, it's British
    If it's ugly, it's French
    If it's weird and ugly, it's Russian

    Can't remember whose rules those were, but I've seen them in a Klyde Morris cartoon.:)

    Ghery, I think that is pretty accurate no matter where you heard it from. I have memories of some weird looking aircraft that were British, and I definitely have seen my share of bizarre looking Russian aircraft too.
