Some "Jet". Take a look at the ASI:

Take a look at the dope and fabric construction.

/extra emphasis on the "dope".

dittybopper: dallylamma: No aerobatics? Oh I'm sorry...I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA!

Well, he *COULD* do aerobatics if he wanted to, at least once.


a lot of the basic manuvers don't stress the plane that much, the oil and fuel systems tend to get all drippy though..

2013.uploaded.fresh.co.il

Stall speed appears to be 70 knots, and the Vne is around 260 knots.

That's about what you'd expect for a very nice, slick GA prop aircraft.


Pretty high-tech, 4th-generation stuff - that's a Thrustmaster FCS Mark II game controller they've got duct-taped to the broomhandle joystick

Mr. Burns: "Look Smithers it's the Spruce Moose! It will fly from here to the Belgian Congo on thimble full of kersosene!"

Smithers: "That's a nice model sir. "

Mr. Burns: "Who said anything about a model?"

I think they may have voided the 1 year warranty, however.

Funny, I suppose, but someone really did fly a model airplane all the way across the Atlantic Ocean on a mere quart of fuel.

That control on the joystick looks like it's off of a helicopter.


My guess is that this was built by the Iranian company that builds the knockoffs of the old U.S. F-5 design. In 1979 the firm "inherited" a factory that had previously been used to supply Bell Helicopters to the Iranian military.

I think what we are really looking at is the new feature and Tehran's Jihadland amusement park.  While we are laughing it up there is an ever growing amusement park ride gap.

That closeup of the cockpit clearly shows that Iran is getting ahead of the US in duct tape + Krylon aviation technology.

I've seen better art cars at Burning Man.

Say what you will, but they've definitely bested my rc model making skills.

yeah not really, just trying to say something nice.

firefly212: Dear GOP, this is what countries that believe in religion more than science look like... is this really what you want our country to be? Iran will never be a serious contender for new weapons platforms (or any other science based endeavor)  as long as the powers that be insist religion is better than knowledge.

I'm surprised they don't have it flying toward the World Trade Center where that dude with the backpack is standing.

Title of image: Graphic Design of the Flight of Jet Fighter Qhaher above Damavand Mountain. So yeah, obviously photoshopped, but not to fool people into thinking it can actually fly.

Dude, that ASI is a UMA single scale gauge. I mean really Iran?

Aircraft Spruce is selling aircraft parts to Iran?

Great, I've been funding a terrorist organization for the past fifteen years.

Actually, it appears to be 40-300, not the 3rd image. I think you're totally right about it being a UMA, though.

As for the instructions in English.  I believe all pilots worldwide must speak, read and write english because all air traffic control towers worldwide must use it as a universal language.  Seams like a cunning plan.  Use the most archaic spoken word on the planet.

It DOES fly! It MUST be real!
