Aviation Jeopardy

Post by VNAF ONE » Fri Aug 16, 2013 7:50 pm

Name explains it all. We just won't deal with categories or money. Topic must remain aviation related but doesn't have to be about an airplane specifically. Correct answer must be in the form of a question (What/Who is _____?) and should include a photo if applicable. I'll start off.

This place was named after a military grid coordinate but never officially existed.

What is area 51?
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Very close, but not precisely the answer I'm looking for. This will be a specific, unique airplane.

What biplane is sometimes considered the worst aircraft ever made crashing on both test flights due to a serious design flaw?

. . . what?

Okay, Jeopardy goes like this.

Someone gives the answer or a fact about something such as an airplane, person, airport, parts, etc.

The correct answer must be in the form of a question. Mr. Funnybone was the last to go so I'm giving my answer to his question:
