Bwahaha the only reason I know this is because of my dad's geeky obsession with teaching me everything he could about aviation.

Definitely an F-16-ish looking intake. I have no idea who owns it. Final answer: F-16.

Nah, i think it's more of a nozel or the behind of an aircraft. My guess, Avon/CAC/F-86 Sabre by somewhat in an orange paintscheme.

My final guess of airforce The Royal Canadian Air Force.

Thanks, TF. The G.91 was one of those planes I've liked ever since I first saw a picture of it.

Well done, Shutter. I've been fond of the MU-2 for a while, and I thought it would be fun to post one of the stock planes from YS. Your turn.

I have no earthly idea. Seriously. I usually guess the time period of the pic or design of the aircraft but I'm stumped. Can't get any of that. :lol:

That's a manufacturer, not an aircraft.

Okay come on guys, this one is no real challenge.

Hints: it is american
it has a special role
It is a modification of a popular civilian aircraft

If you can't get it with that, I give up.
