Name This Reno 2010 'Mystery Detail' For An OSH11 Bacon Sandwich!

(click pic for hi-res)

 Here's a fun little challenge I dreamed up for you... be the first person to correctly name the AIRCRAFT MAKE, MODEL, AND WHAT PART THIS IS and you'll win a 'bacon sandwich' at Oshkosh 2011. Put your answer in the comments area, and be sure you have all the info: aircraft make, model and what part it is. This pic was taken at Reno just a couple days ago - that's your only hint.

 There's no limit on number of guesses, but don't just throw a bazillion wild ones out. Study the pic and then make thoughtful submissions. If nobody gets it in the next few days, I'll just take it down. It's really an intro into a unique post coming soon with lots more of these kinds of pix.

 If the guessing gets weird or out of control, the post will suddenly disappear without explanation (wow, I love having this kind of power!)... consider yourself informed - and have fun : )

Douglas DC-2 elevator where it meets the fuselage.

September 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHolger

Holger- nope, but a good try.

P51 horizontal stab trailing edge. I know, I know...Nope !

If I hadn't taken the pic, I'd be wanting to say it's from a B-26... but I'd be wrong. Plus, there wasn't a B-26 at Reno 2010.

FW-190, not sure what part, but I am sure it is off that airplane.

September 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

Brian- A good guess, but still the wrong airplane.

September 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMartt (admin)

I know it now.....

P-38 Lightning, where the rudder and stab meet....


September 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

Brian- I'll say this much: part of your answer is very correct.

September 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMartt (admin)

OK, I forgot to put in that is is a "Lockheed" P-38.
If it is not the rudder / stab then it is the inner wing stub connection to the tail boom.

September 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

Brian- Ding Ding Ding! You got it with both the addition of Lockheed and the correction of the location. It is indeed where the trailing edge of the wing meets the boom. I've got your email - I'll check in with you about how to fetch up your prize : )

It looks like north american t 6 where the rudder meets the elavater
