Theoretically one could classify the overwing rocket pods used by some Lightnings as "missiles" but generally I believe you are correct.

Got these two in the mail over the weekend, a remote operating base refueling demo from the V-22 to the F-35B.  I could see this as a basis for a diorama with a F-35B in Blue Angels markings and a MV-22B in the markings of their support aircraft.

Pretty well, from the look of that photo, it's already getting airborne. ;)

It's the Bernard V.4, a racing aircraft. The V.4 was actually a land adaptation of the Bernard H.V.120 seaplane racer.

"Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist_Deep_in_the_Big_Muddy) instantly came to mind.

The last of the few: Photographer captures pin-sharp images of the final 55 airworthy Spitfires using just a handheld camera
  • Air-to-air photographer John Dibbs spent years hanging out of fighter planes to capture stunning shots of Spitfires
  • Using skill and experience of former RAF pilot Tim Ellison, Dibbs flew to within 15ft of the hugely iconic planes
  • Battled extreme wind and noise to shoot through open canopy with handheld camera to take remarkable images
