They found the wreck of the USS Lexington east of Australia and shot some amazing pictures:

11 of the 35 planes are found, one of it even has Felix the Cat on it:

What? Did you think there were some ingame-changes for CVs?:cap_haloween:

Not the same plane in the image, but what she would have looked like (or very similar) on the deck of the USS Lexington in her heyday. 

The F3F-1 Grumman VF-6B was truly a beautiful plane from a very heroic ship.

I'd have used many adjectives to describe it and beautiful is definitely not amongst them...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess as an Anime fan, this would be your idea of beauty.

I dread to think what your idea of beauty is, looking at your avatar, that's pretty sad man, no offence snowflake, do the guys at work ever see your avatar and UID? :cap_haloween:

No matter if beautiful or not, compared to other planes it looks a bit chubby. :Smile_teethhappy:

Oh god. You dread my idea of beauty ? Why would you ? Unless you're trying to look pretty for me.
Sorry for making you sad, though being sad because others tastes don't align with you is the saddest thing around here. Besides, why did you assume one would pick their avatar solely with beauty in mind ?

So if avatars are now a reflection of the user's idea of beauty, what does that say about you?

Are your beauty ideals as empty as your avatar?

It's like that post a few months back that described the Italian G.50 Freccia as having beautiful lines.

"Please kill me :(((( " -G.50

Even the pilot is looking at the camera thinking "Oh god they can see me in that thing...so embarrassing..."

 


Yeah, good plane, but radials tend not to be beauty pageant winners.
Very few planes manage to pull it off.

In my opinion, the Corsair did pull it off.

Oh that large and long nose and those gull wings?
Yes please.

There's a chance the French Aéronavale kept the Corsairs in service longer than the Bearcats because of looks alone :Smile_teethhappy:

Oh, the Corsair is just sexy. Imho the german FW 190 also pulled it off.

 

Though the rest of radial engine powered aircraft tend to look a bit ... chubby.

To be honest, it has nothing to do with anime or or curves or anything. I've just never found a nice-looking aircraft ^^ Guess they're not appealing to my eye.

I'm actually amazed by the fact. that there is still paint visible on those aircraft after so many years at the bottom of the ocean.

I'd add the Sea Furry to that list as well...

Careful I see rising sun flags. Better hide that picture before you get banned.

In WG-land only the red stars and CCCP Logos are allowed. :Smile_hiding:

Welcome to the forums!

I wonder if you like the game if THAT is what your first post looks like. Nothing else to say?

Do you realize those are in the game too?

And I know I got an Animeavatar as well but dare I say I didn't pick it because I think Kintaro or the Anime is especially beautiful, but because that Anime is hillarious af and I like the thought to chant a smile on everyones face that know that scene. :Smile_Default:

You should try it too! I bet you will like it as it is a golden classic. (pun intended) That's the cool thing about Anime. there are so many shows that provide a diversitiy that makes sure there is stuff for everyone.

Was googling it just as you posted this because I could have bet 1000 $ it was scene from Drifters. And it was actually.
Never saw "Gate" tho, might as well check it out :)

Oh ok....

The Dragons look VERY similar and the same picture was digged out by google as i was searching for the other one i posted (before posting myself ofc.).

I also could've sworn to renember a similar scene in Gate.....

But oh well... sry :Smile_hiding:

And I haven't watched Drifters yet so that is probably why.

It's an rather average show which feels very rushed at the end, but maybe you like it anyways.

I would recommend rather reading the Manga though. :fish_book:

Needs more dragons. Or are they all gone already? :Smile_teethhappy:

@cro_pwr and @Aotearas are right. My picture actually was from Drifters. It is the entrance scene of Naoshi Kanno. ^^

But I couldn't find any information what plane that is. It should have been part of the 343rd Naval Naval Air Group. at least that is the unit Naoshi was in. :fish_book:

'Gate' doesn't have prop-fighters though. Or at least the manga doesn't, no idea what the anime decided to concoct up though since they've been a lot of artistic freedom to screw with the material ... producers should've known better than give that sort of material to a studio that's 99% slice of life and romance productions. But I'll stop here, otherwise I'd be ranting on for a whole lot of time about how the anime adaptation is meh.
