Can you identify the 30 aircraft in these photos from the Aeroplane's archive collection?

Entries please to quiz@BTnews.co.uk

First prize is a pair of tickets for an Apollo Victoria Theatre performance of 'Wicked', the spectacular West End musical that subverts the well-worn story of Oz and to explain how the Good and Wicked Witches earned their reputations long before Dorothy arrived on the scene.



Also, to celebrate the launch of Travelodge’s new contemporary room design, which includes a new state of the art, luxurious bed called the Travelodge Dreamer, the hotel chain is offering our winner a night's accommodation at a London Travelodge. The winner will stay in an en-suite family-size room (suitable for two adults plus two children, or for three adults) with a comfortable king size bed, flat screen TV, tea & coffee facilities and WiFi - everything you need for a good night’s sleep. There will also be a hearty breakfast buffet provided in the morning. Prize does not include travel. Bookings must be made by 31 March 2014 and all rooms are subject to availability. The winner will be given full terms and conditions and instructions for making their theatre booking and Travelodge reservation. For more information about Travelodge visit: www.travelodge.co.uk.

Three runners up will each receive a copy of the Aeroplane Special bookazine: 'Aviation Archive: Aeroplanes of World War One', published by Kelsey Media: www.kelsey.co.uk.

Competition closing date is 5 January 2014.

Please don’t take this too seriously and you don’t have to send in your entry, just enjoy.  But the prizes are good and we hope the winner does not get it 100% right

We have already provided two answers, one as we do not know the aircraft involved, and in the second case it was considered impossible.

No 23 is an Imperial Airways smoking room.

No 3 is an Avro York.  There are two examples that can be viewed, one at the RAF Museum and another in Imperial War Museum Duxford.
