    I was also (somewhat) expecting someone to say the Sukhoi T-4 "Sotka", but a.) it never went Mach 3 (the Valkyrie did on several occasions), and b.) it didn't really have strategic range to begin with (ferry range is stated as 4,347 miles, but that's a one-way trip; the same mileage is the XB-70's COMBAT range, which would make it a round trip).

    Steve, you be up!

    This rescue plane was developed and built in the 1950s in a mere 12 days. What is it?

    We have a winner!

    The Goodyear Inflatoplane met all the design objectives the Army laid out, but the project was canceled when they "could not find a valid military use for an aircraft that could be brought down by a well-aimed bow and arrow."

    Soviet aviation pioneer Andrei Tupolev and the American aviation designer William Bushnell Stout (Ford Tri-Motor) both owed much to Hugo Junkers in the designs of their earlier aircraft, which benefited from Junkers' corrugated light metal construction technique.

    These two men were the only two of their kind in WWI, one fighting for the French, one for the Ottomans.

    Name either or both of these men.
