Probably real due to the fact that the training systems have no fins. Although it could just be bits of tubing with extra plastic if thats what you mean by fake ;)

I just found this album named "27 Rare color photos from WWII" on Imgur. The photos are unbelievably clear given the time period.

Image
An unidentified US pilot stands up in the cockpit of his plane on the tarmac on Midway Naval Base, Midway Islands, 1942.

Image
A group of Curtiss P-40 Warhawks escorted a pair of Consolidated B-24D Liberators on a flight near the Aleutian islands, Alaska, 1944.

Image
The crew of a B-26 Marauder outside their plane, nicknamed Ginger, 1944.

Image
The flight deck crew prepares planes for launch from the USS Lexington (CV-16), en route near New Guinea, early April, 1944.

Image
Close-up, in-flight view of a Douglas SBD Dauntless piloted by American Lt. George Glacken (left) with his gunner Leo Boulanger, near New Guinea, early April, 1944.

Image
Pair of American servicemen moving a large bomb at an ammunition dump in 1944.

Image
Members of the flight and ground crews of a B-17 bomber named 'Honey Chile II' make adjustments to their plane prior to a mission, Polebrook, Northamptonshire, England, fall 1942. The crew and plane originate from the 97th Bombardment Group of the 8th Bomber Command (later 8th Air Force) which was stationed at Polebrook from June until November of 1942.

Image
Curtiss Wright's chief test pilot H. Lloyd Child (center) writes on a clipboard as he stands with other pilots on a tarmac near the companies manufacturing plant, Buffalo, New York, 1941.

Thus further strengthening the theory of "planes aren't made, they're born". :lol:

Here's a few pics I've found on Reddit. They're part of an album featuring Lend Lease aircraft.

Image
Bomber A-20B Boston of the 3rd Squadron of the 8th Guards Bomber Aviation Regiment, 221st Bomber Division and its crew: navigator - Guard Lieutenant Alexei Shalyutin; Pilot - Guard Lieutenant Alexander Suchkov; gunners - Guard Sergeant Ivan I. Mikhailov and Guard Sergeant Ilya Arsentevich Popugaev.

Image
"Tomahawks" of the 126th Fighter Regiment. The first on the right - the plane (Tomahawk IIA P-40B # AH-965) of Hero of the Soviet Union Stepan Ridnyi (he personally shot down 21 enemy aircrafts and 9 in group fights). Moscow, December 1941

Image
Hurricane Mk IIB (T), piloted by the commander of the Air Force of the Northern Fleet Air Force Major General Alexander A. Kuznetsov.

Image
Pilots of the 9th Guards Fighter Air Division next to G.A. Rechkalov's Bell P-39 Airacobra, From left to right: Alexander F. Clubov (Hero of the Soviet Union, shot down 31 aircraft in person and 19 in the group), Grigoriy A. Rechkalov (twice Hero, brought down 56 aircraft in person and 6 in the group), Andrey Trud (Hero of the Soviet Union, personally shot down 25 aircraft and 1 in the group) and the commander of the 16th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment Boris Glinka (Hero of the Soviet Union, shot down 30 aircraft in person and one in the group).

an incredible YMC-130 Credible Sport that have even shorter takeoff and landing distance than the regular ones....
but sadly,it crashed and having severe damages..... :cry:
maybe we could made it in YS but not to deploy the thrust retardant rocket too early before touchdown otherwise you will crashed just like in this video...

Pictures like that make me wish that Russia and the US were Allies instead of enemies.

A US Air Force B-1 Lancer (in an unusual white anti-flash paint scheme) flies above a Ka-52 "Alligator" during a rehearsal for the Victory Day parade over central Moscow, giving us a rare chance to see the different design philosophies used by each country.
Image

A pair of Russian-built MiG-28 "Finbacks", now flown by the USMC as "aggressors" to train fighter pilots using simulated engagement scenarios. The US managed to get their hands on a couple of surplus Russian aircraft shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The MIG-28's name is odd in a way that it departs from the company's tradition of designating their aircraft with odd numbers.

Last year as part of a ROTC training exercise we got treated to UH-60 transport from Camp Smith NY to West Point training grounds.

I got a little bit of video in flight but its not the best quality. Was holding onto my ruck and weapon at the time while trying not to drop my phone, plus I was rather excited.
Here is another short of the 3 black hawks taking off with the first chalk.
I wish I got better video but under the circumstances I wasn't concerned with the quality. Im also do not recall what National Guard unit flew us.

Tu-204 landing and I see the PS-90 engine reverser are different with the one Decaff give me.....
um Decaff....could you redesign back the PS-90A-76 engine (after I watch some Il-76MD-90 landing video) and make the turret control tail for Il-76?
if you busy right now, I'll maybe figure it out myself....
