We have to apologize to our readers;  our photographer really had fun taking snaps of all the planes, but he neglected to bring a pencil and paper to write down the names of all the aircraft! Do we have an alert readership? We know you're pretty sharp, so please let us know what some of these images are!

Mystery Plane 1: ________

A viewer in Turin, Italy says "..this may be a de Havilland Canada model T Mk.10 "Chipmunk", but I'm not sure."
A viewer in Thessaloniki, Greece says it's definitely a Beech T-34C Turbo Mentor, a standard US Navy trainer

Even we know that this is an A-10 Warthog!

Mystery plane 2: __________

Thessaloniki viewer: "Mystery plane 2 is a Cessna T-37B Tweety Bird. The
A-37 COIN aircraft was actually derived from it."

Mystery plane 3: __________

A viewer says that this is a Cessna A-37 "Dragonfly", and that it was used in counter-insurgency ops and in closed air support missions, but not in these colors! Any more responses out there?

Mystery plane 4: ___________

Our Thessaloniki viewer says that Mystery plane 4 is a Chinese CJ-6 trainer painted to
resemble a Russian YAKOVLEV aircraft, and that the Russian word below
may mean "RESCUE".
This is a hint about the identity of Mystery plane 4; note the Russian word. What does this word mean?_______

 

Mystery plane 5: ______

Thessaloniki viewer: "Mystery plane 5 is a Vultee BT-13 Valiant of WWII
vintage."

Thank you!
