It is indeed the ac in your photo so there is some confusion somewhere-

Speaking of timing there appears to be a timing error in your camera re 'date taken'

In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: I see "savonie" has been busy trying to discredit some of the entries that are "training" aircraft, rather than official "fighter" planes. However, he (or she) has not even made comment on a few entries that are WW I trainers, or a couple that could be trainers, but are not identified - or identifiable - by just what can be seen in the photo. Perhaps it would be helpful if the real host makes a ruling here. Are military training aircraft allowed in this challenge?

I am not 'discrediting' in anyway the entries that are training aircraft - Just observing the rules - I cannot comment on WWI aircraft as they are not of interest to me - I only comment on what I know-
