Identify the Aircraft (The WWW Challenge)(h/t Wild Wild West)

Note, that in this challenge, please use the proper designation and manufacturer. For example, if it is a US Navy Aircraft, it will have a different designation than a US Army Air Corps Aircraft.

WWW our fellow blogger came up with a somewhat devious/difficult challenge for you all and I am passing it on. I don’t think that I could have got them all right if I didn’t have his reference material provided.




There is a difference between 2 and 3. This is a very tough challenge.

  1. (1) R4D
    (2) Either the Nakajima L2D, or perhaps one of the pre-war DC-3s. I think, the latter.
    (3) Showa L2D


    1. Kle nailed it.

      2 is the Nakajima, 3 is the Showa and they’re Japanese knock offs. 1 is an R4D.

  2. It’s a tough crowd, that’s for sure.

    Still and all, might have one in my personal archives that might confuse them a little, if L-L still wants to play and I can find the doggone thing.

  3. Identify the Aircraft:
    1. Douglas R4D-8 aka C-117D
    2. Nakajima L2D
    3. Shōwa L2D3 ‘Tabby’

    Know I’m a day late. Didn’t see this until now.
