SET 3

The SET 3 was a military trainer aircraft developed in the late 1920s.

It was a single-bay biplane with unstaggered wings of equal span. It was had a fixed tailskid undercarriage, and the pilot and instructor sat in tandem, open cockpits. The design was shown to the Romanian Air Force for consideration, and gained an order for two prototypes to be placed. Upon delivery, one of the aircraft was used for flight tests, while the other was tested on the ground.The type first flew in 1928 and after 11 months, an order for 10 aircraft was placed, which were delivered to the air force's pilot training school at Tecuci. The new aircraft was flown by SET chief test pilot Gheorghe Stefanescu to first place in the aerobatics competition at the 1929 Romanian national aviation meeting.

It was powered by a Salmson 9Ab engine which developed 230 hp. In December 1930, the air force placed an order for 20 more aircraft in two different batches. Ten were to be basically similar to the SET 3 but feature various improvements including a redesigned undercarriage, and another ten armed with machine guns for pilot and observer.

Strange how the video is recorded from a monitor, could be fake I suppose, quality isn`t great ie extreme glare, which is a bit suspect for a new state of the art ship.


It could very well be a photoshop job, I am not entirely convinced. Some P45`s will be handed out I am sure.

Noticed the BA flight from BHX is just landing at BHD now Embraer E190SR G-LCYU was due 1950, now landing 2332,likely due to poor weather earlier. :-\

I can just see the complaints of a late flight, appearing on social media.  >:(

1300 SOCATA TBM-700 N940ES of TRANSATLANTIC DELIVERIES TRUST departed EGAA heading N, could be a bumpy ride  :-\

Runway 35 in use. It`s fun to watch approaching aircraft from Tesco Crumlin carpark when 35 is active.

I heard the TBM-700 climbing out over Antrim.  Not long after, we were hit with some strong gusts!

If true, someone's career in the Andrew is about to take an interesting turn.
