Picture of the day

“Makes you want to rush out and buy a couple of hundred Skyraiders!” says my colleague Kieran Daly of this Embraer picture of a pair of purposeful Super Tucanos. I’m not sure Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PT6A, even at 1,600shp, sounds quite the same as a Skyraider’s Wright Cyclone, or a Sea Fury’s Bristol Centaurus (a personal favourite), but of today’s trainer/attack turboprops only Embraer’s Super Tucano has that iconic look of a late-era propeller-powered fighter. And it gets used in anger.
