      Always amazes me that such a little airplane can haul that much ordinance...

        Dragonfly!
        Proved his efficiency many times.
        And he's sooooo cute!

          The U.S. could use something cheaper to operate in the low intensity conflicts like a modern version of the Dragonfly. But it seems like drone s have taken over a !of of the light attack rôle.

              Dragonfly for me. Is this the smallest plane with inflight refuelling?

                The Dragonfly probably does deserve to win this and it looks well set to do just that; but the Aermacchi is getting a bigger drubbing that it rightfully deserves, I reckon.
                Sympathy vote for the Italian machine.

                  The wonderful Macchi was the RAAF trainer for more years than I care to mention.

                  Every pilot I have evr spoken to lauded its quality and servicability. I'm pretty certain it kept the italian aviation construction industry solvent for many decades.

                              The repetition of affirmations leads to belief. Once that belief becomes a deep conviction, you better wake up and look at the facts.
