    DM i have those Pictures at home on My Irish Air Corps CD Rom that was brought out for the 75th Anniversary! Is that where you got them as they are the same shots in the CD Rom! Would you be a darling and put up some more of the Aircraft like the Fouga, Cessna, Marchetti like cock pits etc?

    Ihave alway wanted to use one of those Aircraft pics as a background but just cant obtain the pics from the CD.

    Dangermouse... you have outdone yourself. These are perfect for the model I am building...Fonderie 1/48 scale Fouga. Strange kit, needs a lot of work. I found it odd that they didn't include the parts for the snebs nor the machine guns.
    So, I need to scratch-build them.
    These pictures will go a long way to accomplishing that. Thanks again.

    The machine guns are the french AA52 7.62mm (originally chambered for french 7.5mm)
    They are of blowback type operation and each had a 250 round feed which consisted of 3 ball, 1 tracer and 1 ap. They were hydraulically operated for cocking, recocking and clearing.

    The Sneb 68mm rocket pods carried 6 rockets.A Mixture of types were stocked (Smk, AP, and APers) They could only be fired when travelling in excess of 150kts.

    thanks Dangermouse, it's much appreciated. If you have anything else regarding any other Air Corps aircraft we'd all be glad to see them.

    Great site dangermouse. Is it yours?
    However the geocites domain as a host has huge limitations on bandwidth and is down for most of the time,once you reach your limit(about 10 vews an hour if you have lots of photos). Also it is not possible to direct link geocities images to a site like this one.
    May I suggest you change your webhosting service?
    IMO can put you in touch with an excellent provider at minimal cost. With an irish military url.
    Failing that you could use something like eircom or iol,but they are troublesome..

    Dear Dangermouse:
    My God! These are excellent!
    Thank you so very much, this is much more than I could have hoped for. I noticed on the posts that you may have had other shots?
    Please can you post a few more, especially of the machine guns, prehaps a frontal or more profile shot?

    Again, thank you. It's good to see the teeth these aircraft had at one point.

    Hi Yeehah,

    Here are the links to the two pictures I mentioned:

    Picture 1, rocket pods & guns (If you want I can send you a bigger version of this picture)

    And

    Picture 2

    And here is a link to a close up of the covered up gun ports on the nose:

    Picture 3

    Is there any chance you'd be able to send me on the pictures of that Fouga in Shannon with the intention of putting them on the IrishAirPics.com website?

    You can upload the pictures here: http://www.irishairpics.com/submissions.html


    Regards,

    Frank.

    Normally the guns were not fitted, the nose of the aircraft appeared as you saw it, with the gun positions closed. When required, the the guns were fitted in the nose, the blanking panels were removed & the barrels protruded out from positions.
