Try this word search.

Find the names of the U.S. fighter aircraft in the diagram per the puzzle's instructions.

For those Forum viewers looking for more of a challenge, try the Sudoko.  (I'm leaving the sudoko until I'm really bored and I become smarter. I might not get to it today...)  ::)

 :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Hi Bruce:

Thanks for this. I found “Phantom”. Was easy. Got anything more challenging?  ;)  ::)

@Richard_RC_Guy, There is more than the one word 'Phantom' in the diagram.  If you look closely and use the list of words under the diagram, I am sure you will find more.  There is even a hidden word that isn't in the list. Follow the clue and see if you can find it too?  ;D

Unfortunately I don't have anything more challenging at the moment.  Maybe you or someone else has something and will post it here for our entertainment and to exercise the grey-matter. 

Thanks for playing.

Can you guess these 11 aircraft.  I couldn't. As a matter of fact, I didn't even get 50%.  :'(

Greg H,

re: "woot 73%"

Was that your unassisted score or with Scout's help?? ;D

ps: photo of Greg and Scout the wonder dog.  Scout is still wondering how he ended up in the Hazelton family. ;)

Here is a radio control airplane quiz.  Give it a try.  It is a bit dated but it works if you are looking for a distraction.

I got 9 out of 10.  Although I would dispute this one...
   
Your Answer: 3

The correct answer was 2

Typically the channels are arranged as follows:
1 - Aileron
2 - Elevator
3 - Throttle
4 - Rudder

Just sayin'

Ah well  :)

Before Spread-Spectrum maybe yes.  No, not so much!
