    I suspect that Mike hasn't identified the flying wing because there's no-one in the picture wearing a beret or waving a green bottle whilst muttering that absinthe makes the heart grow fonder! I used...

    Bien sûr, mes amis. Walter is correct. It is the Langlois JL.2 dating from, surprisingly, as late as 1980. Probably the world's only aggietripoux, it flew for a year, found no takers for it as a...

    On the basis that I think everything is (or, at least, should be) French, a Potez 36?

    I think that it is, or at least is related to, a Partenavia Fachiro/Oscar and, if so, is an early model, but I can't find one that has the sort of fin depicted in your photograph, Walter.

    Indeed it is the 1971 Rapace, Walter. But you've deprived me of the opportunity of giving my intended clue, that being the aeroplane in which it had its origin twenty two years earlier. But that's...
