#2 looks like an Air France 777
#3 can be whatever you want it to be...
#5 787 flaps down, though I would leave that to JCW.
#6 an airline with RK...

So the one with the flaps/ slats is from an A320 series airliner and looks eerily similar to my avatar.

Bottom left corner, something from Turkish Airlines

Top Right corner, Delta

Top Middle, Southwest 737-8MAX hopefully.

A Southwest 737 Max 8 would be cool, I know I’m weird but I love their livery. My first impression of that pic made me think of Iberia, though. Number 4 looks like a polished aluminum DC-9/MD-80 cockpit window- maybe the polished USAir DC-9-30 we thought was going to be released this month, only to be Allegheny’s DC-9 in the early ‘70s speedwedge livery?

Last picture could be the top of a vertical fin with anti collision beacon of a prop liner.

But from Gemini, it is highly unlikely.

3. Could be a Air New Zealand 787-9?
4. DC-9 cockpit window, a US Air MD-80?
5. Flaps Down A320?
6. Could be a Turkish 777-300?
7. Maybe a Convair.

Thought so at first too, but look up their tail and you'll see the white portion is more elongated and does not match the photo from the clue.

You are probably right. Also Gemini sadly doesn't care much about European airlines.

Just a thought. Why not make it more fun for everybody on the DAC. The DAC member who is able to guess all the correct answers receives a 'free' 1/200 diecast model from one of the G200 October 2017 releases or even a 1/400 bird? The folks at Gemini Jets can personally pick the specific model (prize) for the collector. T7 (maybe you can pass this fun suggestion to Gemini Jets?)

#7 looks kind of like a DC-6 tail, but the profile isn't exactly right. Agreed it is a propliner though. Maybe a Convair as mentioned.

The profile sure looks like a Convair- makes sense- Gemini has a CV- mold.

Excellent idea. Should be a worth promotion on a monthly basis.

T7 shall get a model for the suggestion too.

Could well be a Convair propliner (CV340/440/580).
Maybe a Continental Express (N73106) with goldcoloured tail?
Gemini's Convairs are very nice models.

I was hoping for the AA 727-200 but the 707s, 727s, and 737 had 2 eyebrow windows per side. I think it has to be a DC-8/-9 or MD-80

that was the exact image that prompted my guess! I'd love another Continental meatball in my collection.

I'd like to change my guess on #4. Eastern DC-9-30
