    #7 Would appear to be some sort of jet? I am going to guess an Windward Performance Sparrow-Hawk

  18. UPDATE.
    #7. QW - Long haul news, is working the correct area.

    #11. Sir Minty. Not a Just or a Rotax.

    #18. Getting close DamoH. Rotor blade - yes.

    #21. Getting close there QW. Small helicopter.

  19. Would 21 be a Schweizer/Hughes 300?

  20. 20 is possibly a Rotorway helicopter

  21. must be time for some more clues but im guessing 11 is either an aviat husky or a highlander homebuilt
