It super-flew us!
Simply the airplanest
Does it moe?
This one goes all the way to 11 on the airplane scale.
Now let’s McDonaldest!
Try also our Manicurest
I guess a Naigator is a species of alligator with two propellers and wings. It’s green alright…
I wish for a Super Snorest-opper
It can’t get any Engrisher than this, so I’ll try to Captionest
This is your Captainer, we are going to takest off.
Not just any Airplanest, Naigator
Would you like flies with that
Which leads us to:
Q. Do you own a Jetski?
A. Nyet comrade.
Wherever it is, they must have lots of mossies.
Do you notice the plane on the right, with a large Mosquito-coil on top.
Now who’s the translatest?
Batteriest not includer
The pilot calls his plane this when he’s flying drung.
“All the best, Airplanest!”
– Mommy, what’s for super?
“It’s an entirely different kind of flying altogether” -ted striker
@Dr Lex 0432. That puts me in mind of an interview with Joh Bjelkie Petersen. (Premier of Queensland for 15 years or more)
Interviewer: But! Mr Premier. There have been allegations.
Joh: And if I catch those alligators (ers?), they will be in lots of trouble.
The stupid old bastard could barely speak English. One day he famously said: “I have been up a dry creek with two paddles before today.”
I have no idea what he meant. I just assumed, that he did not have both oars in the water.
Just keep them alligators out of the elevators.
If you think the USA has some crazy pollies, you should read Oz’s political history.
One Arthur (Cocky) Calwell, stalwart of the labour party, and icon. Anyway, talking on the “White Australia Policy” of the time, he said: “Two wongs do not equal a white.”
I was about 11 or 12 yo. at the time, and I can still remember thinking; “This bloke is a dickhead to go down in history.”
If you must ask – YES.. Even at that age I used to read Hansard, and listen to broadcasts of the parliamentary proceedings, on the ABC.
“Attention passengers. On behalf of your captain Wai Tu Lo and copilot Ho Lee Fuk we would like to advise we would like to advise we are now making our finalest approach”
I think that is why they put pilots right up the front. In event of an accident, they are the first to go.
This is the Green Plane of Dakota.
It contrasts nicely with the Black Hills.
Well. It looks like a DC 3. (Dakota – military version)
Well sorta. The wings don’t look, quite as I remember them.
OK, I’ve seen your airplanest. Do you have anything a bit airfancier?
That’s a naigatory, tower. We did not just fly through a snot storm!
Marum: No part of that green thing looks quite right to me, but it probably was based on the DC-3/C-47 Dakota. Or it was copied from other toy airplanes, which eventually trace back to toys modeled on the DC-3 in the 1950’s…
The other odd thing is the packaging is decorated with pictures, not of any airliner, but apparently of the E-2 Hawkeye carrier-capable AWAC plane.
I think one of the planes is trying to hypnotize us into buying this toy.
Air Force tv ad: we’re looking for a few good airplanes.
Lora: That’s an E-2 Hawkeye. There are two of them pictured on the package, one viewed from the front and the other from above. That round disk is the radar antenna, and it actually rotates in operation, so that spiral paint job _is_ hypnotic.
The Air Force uses a similar rotating radome mounted on a 707 as the E-3, but they unimaginatively just paint a stripe across the radome.
@markm 0745. I think my explanation was better. It is a Mosquito Coil.
Although @ Lora ‘s explanation was fantastic. “You will watch this. You will buy this toy…..’YES MASTER.’ Gurgle. 👾
Don’t get sup or super. Get supest.
