The Plenum
The MMF's Newest and most versatile aircraft, the Plenum, used for in-flight refueling on long-range missions
About this creation
The Plenum is the latest addition to the MMF (Mikrhoseise Minifig Forces)ís air combat service. Its sole purpose, to refuel other aircraft in-flight, is taken to a top degree with this sleek, reliable aircraft. Okay, okay, so what if itís 60% based on the Lego Companyís 7894 plane? Itís different, so there. The point is, it is a top-certified aircraft, and the MMF has a firm order for two planes to refuel other plane on long-range bombing missions. It may one day make it to the commercial market as a domestic cargo/tanker.

Blurry photos is my middle name. But remember, maybe we donít want to reveal all the details anyway. Yes, I know, the Plenum is a pretty sleek aircraft with its forward-swept wings, donít you think?

Thanks to the Lego Companyís engines, the Plenum can obtain a maximum cruising speed of 360 mph (while carrying an 8,000 gallon tank of fuel!), though during refueling the speed is usually cut to 100 mph or less.

The insides of the Plenum consist of the 8,000-gallon tank, the cabin, and the flight deck. The cabin is filled with a bunch of miscellaneous junk . . . oh, and youíre wondering what the shiny thing is? Theyíre solid lead magnets (yes, you read it correctly) to keep the aircraftís weight balanced when the tank is full. Did you know that the Plenumís tank is waterproof?

The buoys on the ends and underneath the wings are for high-speed flight coordination, not for landing in water. Here you can see the fuel boom in its retracted mode while the aircraft is on the ground or in high-speed flying conditions.

During a mission, the fuel boom is let down and hooks up with fuel rod of a neighboring aircraft (I donít mean to be sensual), and thus refuels its companion.

The twin-flight-crew Plenum is certainly a cool aircraft with a vital purpose, and the MMF is proud to introduce it into its air combat service.

Tankers are part of an "air combat service"?

Nice, but it looks like a jet plane from a set with the wings reversed, but I may be mistaken, so I'm giving it a 4.

Nice logistical craft. I like the wings slanted forward like that. By the way, you request was granted and you have been added to my homepage.
