I'm going to guess that plane 1 is a Hawker TF.58 Hunter

Plane 3 is, I believe, a Fieseler Fi 156 C Storch

Correct on two, but plane one escapes you at the moment. I have confidence in you though1

Though it's no airplane, I'll bite. It looks like a MI-24 Hind-D

Perhaps it's time to launch another member of the _________Puzzles.com family. How's AeroPuzzles.com strike you?  ;D

Well, Airplanes aren't exactly my thing, but I am more than impressed by your knowledge. Here is my last effort to stump you though!

I am about to give up, but I have a friend who is an aviation journalist in Switzerland I have asked to join in KarnUtz. If any one can stump you it will be him. Doi you rent yourself out as an encyclopedia from time to time? Here are my last two efforts:-

As regards the aircraft above, the company was founded in 1931 by, amongst others, the novelist Neville Shute although this example was built in 1940 by another company under contract. Incidentally, re the photo attached here, is this the real one or is the real on in the USA?

Plane 8 is a real puzzler. Grumman's F3 was a biplane, F4 wings were mounted higher (unless the perspective on this photo is throwing me off) , and every F8 I've seen  has a bubble canopy.   ???

Plane 9 is, I think, a Bristol Blenheim (aka Type 142)

To the best of my knowledge, Memphis Belle is undergoing a lengthy restoration at the National Museum of the United States Air Force near Dayton, Ohio, after being vandalized and neglected for decades while on display in Tennessee.

Frankly I can't blame you if you never get plane 9 because it is so obscure that even my aviation jouranlist friend with 30 years in the business couldn't get it. Attached is the description of it.

Plane 8 looks like a CAC Boomerang...

You're sure it's a Grumman?
