This is a one-off from Europe.
By Jove, 'tis a Heinkel 20 ! (Not, according to my sources, a trainer...)
'Infamous bomber' ? Surely not the dear old 111 ? Or the not-so-dear 177 ?
Your sources might be more accurate. Maybe a trainer/observation plane? But indeed the Heinkel H.D.20. And yes on the He 177!
Fire at will-
I have the He20 as a reconnaissance & surveying machine - floor-mounted cameras etc.
Here's a familiar-looking transport. Or is it ?
Could this be the LET L-400?

No, Ferry. Don't know much about the LET-400, but the LET-410 has a very circular fuselage, and this one is definitely square ! Not A Czech production.
No clue really. Something from Eastern Europe maybe?
It is not European at all.
It seems you got us all left!
A longshot, maybe a Short 360 (C-23 prototpype) with smaller windows?)
On second thought I think the cockpit area does not match with the Short.
My final bid: "Something" from Harbin Aircraft , PRC
Right, if Wout and Moses are out of ideas, I think we'll move on. Wout was getting close...
This is (wait for it) the Nanchang Jing Gang Shan-4 ! (same designer as the Ring Ting Dingaling, you all cry....) It never got past prototype stage in 1970.
Now, for all you floater lovers , one ahead of its time..
On reflection, not much to go on in that pic. Here's another..
Kirkham Air Yacht it is, although The Jane's of the period refers to it as the 'Air Boat' . Quite a snazzy number for 1925, don't you think ?
For 1925, agreed that it looked ahead of it's time. Found some info in the Flight archives.
Here is one that is armed and dangerous.....well maybe not that dangerous...
Well if that wasn't designed by our Anthony, it was somebody looking over his shoulder..........
In this case you might look for that guy over the shoulder...
<thinking out loud> Has some "Russian-ness" about it, except for those wheel pants. Then there's the external longitudinal reinforcements reminiscent of a Bloch design. Call me stumped as usual. I'm guessing it was built somewhere around '29 - '32.
Don't think it is Russian, or Japanese. Quality of photo and general appearance make me think it is probably an American one-off.
DHC2 has the timeframe correct. This is a one-off as far as I know.
Here she is with cowl rings on and possibly re-engined and given another designation.
Oh, and not from USA or Russia...
Not Japanese either...
This one is from a small but not obscure outfit. Will reveal tomorrow unless someone figures it out.
Built by SPCA perhaps? Jeez, where do you dig these moldy things up from??? You're killin' me. LOL
DHC2 was on the right track, this one is the ANF Les Mureaux 120. The cowled version might be the 121 but I have no proof of that.
Five seater airliner anyone?
