SU-47, as Sokhoi's most recent production aircraft and a more modern aircraft to that.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Armstrong Whitworth Albemarle: one of its tugs. It was too heavy most of the time for C-46's and C-47's.

Tiger Moth. Often the first aircraft that young RAF pilots flew, before moving onto the Hurricane and Spitfire in the Battle of Britain.
