Return of the Mystery plane

In between meetings – they let me get away from the customer site. And I always take my camera with me.

Here I present one of the unique and unusual aircraft I found. Now – I am talking about the white airplane w/ the blue and red stripes across the nose (in the foreground). The gray plane in the background – isn’t much of a challenge.

Please post in the comment the following information;

– Original airframe it was based on?
– What it was used for?
– Who paid for it?

I will provide a clue – the airplane was photographed in Florida.

First Prize – an honorary ‘Threat Axis’ Gold Star (to be worn on your fatigues when it is time to take over the Banana Republic)

The decision of the judges is final (note – bribery is allowed. A special prize will be awarded for the most creative bribe).

Good luck!

 

Welcome to Threat Axis

Good afternoon all 3 of you watching at home. Welcome to Threat Axis. A place for those of us who aren’t on the inside and in the know – to post our comments and rants about the Global Security situation around us.

Hopefully the information presented here will open your mind to what the world is like – outside your own hometown – and show that Threats can come from any direction – or Axis.

I am going to start this blog off with one of my favorites ice-breakers.
