    I so ashamed. These were my answers before reading anyone else’s, kind of.
    1. Comet? Probably not
    2. No idea.
    3. Ooh, very pointy, plus stripy pitot tube. Supersonic barber shop?
    4. F15 and something else at the front which isn’t an F15, not least because it carries wingtip missiles
    5. Can fly, thus not an XFV12A, other than that, probably a jet.
    6. Pointy, also second most baroque pitot tube.
    7. MB5 I got another! Possibly.
    8. Something stealthy. Are you allowing drones, HK gang? If so, some kind of drone.
    9. Most baroque pitot tube winner! Also, very thin and pointy – one of those twin-engined Yak jets?
    10. Well that’s very green isn’t it? Looks a bit soviet to me, but I wouldn’t bet a brass farthing even on that guess, frankly.
    11. Mc 202? Or is that actually the name of a DJ? Not a Ka 61. that’s for sure. because I once glued a Revell model one of those together ineptly.
    12. You want to get that seen to, mate.
    13. Concorde? Probably not

        Hooray! Wasn’t sure about the me209 and the tu144. I have an old twitter account I haven’t used in years, should probably re-activate or open another one. Thanks for the quiz Hushkit, it was a lot of fun!
