Ninja'd by the thread author (doesn't matter)

Captain Michel Croci's F-100 Super Sabre, Djibouti, 1977 (11ème escadre de chasse, "la onze")


The year after Croci's squadron transformed to Jaguar and was send to Africa. On January 1984 during a low altitude straffing mission in Tchad Croci's jaguar was shot down by a gun and he was killed in the crash. Merignac airfield BA-106 is named after him (see my signature for the museum there)

Always thought this one would be the perfect plane for a shark mouth. (Or the whole shark like they do with tigers on some of those Tiger Meet jets.)

For props, I agree completely. For jets, I think the F-4 did it best.

Uncommon because it's on a helicopter and unearthly.
A pity they didn't do the Alien's second mouth around the gun.

P-40 has to be the quintessential "mouth", right?



Found this gallery while looking for the P-40 pic

I also thought the submarine above was a natural. I'd never seen that before.

I was glad to see the AGM-86 posted earlier by Sferrin. I've always thought they bore a strong resemblance to a shark even without a mouth.

Actually that shark is made of Titanium not steel. Expensive boats. http://www.hisutton.com/Russian%20SIERRA%20Class%20Titanium-hulled%20attack%20sub.html
