Got the word about these U-28s so popped down to Prestwick just in time for them leaving.

The rescue Herc was killing time to let its chicks get a bit further towards Iceland so after take off  we got a nice fly by.

The KC-135 has been broken for a few days.

There's something about these new-build Yak-3 that I really like. One for the fantasy collection if I ever were to suddenly and inexplicably become stupidly rich.

Yep now to find a proper klimov engine instead of that Allison that ruins the top line

Couple of right weirdo's in there. No idea what the first one is or what the national (?) marking on the fin is & that one 2nd from last, you couldn't make that one up. Really liked the Il-10 & Il-2.

A replica of the Deperussin Monocoque.  I'll get back to you on the markings.

What the hell is THAT!

Other than an experimental disc wing glider I have no idea. 

It has no placard and its not in the book on Monino.

EDIT; It is a Sukhanov Discoplan

Thanks for that Richard, that's an amazing bit of footage. I'm staggered that that thing can fly! It's difficult to see if it's actually gliding, or if it was more of a controlled plummet.
