A fighter aircraft is a military aircraft designed primarily for air-to-air combat with other aircraft. The hallmarks of a fighter are its speed, maneuverability, and small size relative to other combat aircraft.
A jet plane is an aircraft propelled by jet engines. Jet aircraft generally fly much faster than propeller-powered aircraft and at higher altitudes – as high as 10,000–15,000 metres (33,000–49,000 ft). At these altitudes, jet engines achieve maximum efficiency over long distances. Jet planes form the mainstay of the modern aircraft fleet.
A swept-wing airplane is an experimental aircraft which was very original and extraordinary for its time. The first swept-wing airplane appeared in 1907 and was invented by a talented Irishman, J. W. Dunne. A swept-wing’s main advantage was that it remained stable in all axes.
The Aero L-29 Delfín is a military jet trainer aircraft that became the standard jet trainer for the air forces of Warsaw Pact nations in the 1960s. It was Czechoslovakia’s first locally designed and built jet aircraft.
As the previous post about how to tie the European loop was devoted mostly for men, it’s time to show that this scarf knot can be worn by women too, just make sure that the scarf must be more feminine and thin, like a silk pashmina or stylish silk scarf.

We’ve added more Lego instructions to the Lego Instructions app. Now it has instructions for Lego farm set with the animals like a pig, ram and sheep; Lego circus set with funny clowns and poodles; and some more instructions for African animals: an elephant, giraffe, hippo and tropical birds.
Lego is a fun game for boys, girls and small children. Some fantasy – and using simple Lego bricks we can collect figures of people and animals. No kid will stay indifferent to a small cute dog or funny sheep into which common plastic bricks turn. New instructions included to the app will be especially useful for the beginners and parents with small children. Also, many of these animals are easy to do and they don’t require any special parts or bricks.
You can use these simple and easy Lego toys to play with your kid. While building these animals, small children can learn their names or the places where they live. For example, you can make up a story about animals that live in Africa or ask your kid to make up a story about animals that live in a farm. This will serve two purposes at a time – your kid will have fun and learn something new. Take a Lego animal and ask your kid: Do you know what animal is this? – Yes, it’s sheep. And what sound does it make? – It bleats. -Yes, that’s right…
Such games are very useful because children learn something new better while they play.

There are a great number of ways of wearing scarves: scarves wrapped on head, scarves as a waistbands, scarves decorating bags, scarves tied around neck…
There are just few legendary trademarks known for producing quality and beautiful silk printed scarves - Gucci, Etro, Salvatore Ferragamo and Hermes. To get a silk Hermes scarf – is a golden dream of any fashion girl.

The great merit of a silk scarf is that it gives a final touch to the style, brings charm and drama to the final look. When going out, just tie a silk scarf around your neck – and be sure that no man will just go by not casting an admiring look at you!
