Here's a new game for the Photoshop crowd - crop a picture down to one identifiable feature. Like the Guessing Game, the first to identify the aircraft gets to put up the next cropped image.

Let's start with an easy one ---

Airplane pictures are all over the Internet - simply type your subject airplane into Google and you'll get dozens of references with plenty of pictures.

Find one with the feature you'd like to crop down to, right click on it (Windows OS - I don't do Mac) and Save Picture As to wherever you stash pictures. Then use any picture editor to open it - since all you're doing is cropping (and perhaps rotating) the image, just about any picture editor will do. Do the deed with the electronic razor blade and save the result.

I use www.imageshack.us to store pictures for posting into forums - there are others too. Find one you like and store your cropped picture therein. Copy its URL, get back into the FG forum and paste the URL into your post.

Hope that helps!

I'll gladly let you have another go Tahutihotep, seeing that I cheated a bit there.

That's the chin turret on a B-17G. Namely, "Sentimental Journey". She's from the Arizona wing of the CAF. What a beauty!!!! :D
