Take the Airliners.Net Quiz!

I got a 75%, 15 out of 20 on the "All Photos quiz."

Post what you get.

I got a 70%, 14 out of 20 on the "Airliner quiz."

I see why it's still in Alpha... one picture it showed me was one of part of a fuselage that had crashed, just about impossible to determine what aircraft it was.

In another, it was impossibly confusing. The 2 choices were 757-200, and 757... if you put 757... you couldn't get it wrong, because it was a type of 757, but the correct anwser is 757-200, as that's what info is in the database.

8 out of 20... not bad for wild guesses on every shot.

The *ONLY* one that I knew was the picture of a burned out wheel of some sort. That one HAD to have belonged to a Canadian aircraft, so the choice was easy :wink:

15/20 on the Military Aircraft quiz...I'm much poorer with civil aviation, especially former Eastern Bloc civil. My WW2-Vietnam era military is quite good, as well as 80's/90's fighter aircraft. WWI-1930's is decent.

The pages were loading really slow....

All guesses, except 1, the Super Transporter was the easiest one, the name was right on the plane (the bubble looking one)

I am not into planes at all. 9 out of 20, DOH!!!


:oops: :oops:


I am 32 years old & have yet to be on a plane of any kind, I am in no rush to take my first flight either.

HOW?! How is that possible?!


I think it comes from the fact that:

1) I don't like heights (except roller coasters) &
2) I am not the travelling type, if I can't drive somewhere, I just don't go. the furthest I have gone (from NJ) is to Disney World as a kid and to Columbus, OH about 8 years ago


I imagine at some point I will have to get on a plane, I always wanted to go to Alaska. Unless I hit the lottery and don't have to work anymore, I would never be able to get enough time off to drive there.
:D :D

Also, I would love to see Hawaii, no way to drive there. :D :D
