    I'm fairly sure of 20. Some are planes for which I haven't done research, or cards. Some I could guess at, but there are, at least, 5 or 6 I haven't seen other than in passing.

    I asked our Wing-Co to draw a winner from the long list of two correct entries, and with Mrs Kyte as an impartial adjudicator, he duly flipped his double headed Eagle which magically came down tails, so "Gunners" is the winner, Congratulations to Steve I will send you your prize as soon as you send me your address.

    OK, for the benefit of those who couldn't quite guess all 30 aircraft (or as Donald T would say: "Losers" ) here are the names of the aircraft:

    Ok. The 20 I thought I knew were right. That was good.

    The few I guessed at, not so good, getting them wrong, including a few "D'oh!' moments.

    Thanks for making my brain stretch, and introducing me to some interesting points in aviation history.

    You forgot the Heinkel He.III, which the Hurricane attacked and the Sepecat Jaguars being refueled by the V.C.10, but what is the German aircraft, which the S.E.5a's are chasing?
