    TNCA 3-E-130.

    for Moses. I didn't think it was THAT easy

    It's back to twin-boom pusherville...

    Now this is the legendary Lester Finkelbaum with his PintaFlyer Mk1 which he built in his garage in Albuquerque. Remove the wings and tail unit, and it turns into a perfectly normal milk float.

    Uh, no but nice try! The country is correct though.

    My first impression was that is the infamous 'Havant Aclew'


    PS, is that a DH Puss Moth or Leopard Moth in the hangar? It certainly has the distinctive DH fin

    Joking aside, could it possibly be a 'Whatsit' made by Waldo Waterman?

    On further investigation, I don't think it is a Whatsit, but the cabin does look very similar, so perhaps a modified Whatsit?

  8. #258
    It's not a Waterman effort.

    OK then, how about a Stout Skycar?

  10. #260
    Yep, thats it. This one is a modified Skycar I.

    sandar Over to you Sir. (Lefty was being a bit modest on this one)

    A favorite of mystery plane threads. The Latvian VEF I-16.

    Moses, Have you hacked my PC, or are you an encyclopedia:ques:

    Anyway have a
    Time for another to the library

  14. #264
    Thanks sandar. Certain planes come up from time to time and the I-16 is one of them. Lefty is the encyclopedia, I'm just the guy who sweeps up at night.

    Now for something completely different...

  15. #265
    Nothing on this one yet - I started off assuming it naturally was American, but I wonder ?

  16. #266
    It hails from your side of the pond...

  17. #267
    Oh dear, I'm having to log in every time now..............

    Think I'll surrender here - not too good on the modern stuff - think it might be Russian ?

    Anyone else ?

  18. #268
    Not Russian. Did you notice the very small sponsons?

  19. #269
    Hurricane
    Guest
    I had noticed them, not sure they help too much though!

  20. #270
    Sponsons normally means Dornier...........

    Sorry guys, had a migraine today and have only just had a look. :isadizzy:


    My first thoughts were German and Dornier immediately sprang to mind, so did Grob.
    I can't see any evidence of wheels, so that means a true flying boat, not an amphibian.

  22. #272
    I feel your pain sandar. Have suffered from migraines on and off since I was about 11yrs old. Miserable times.

    This one is a bit obscure so I think I will move it along. It's a Poschel P-420. Was a testbed for the Equator P-300.


    Onward with this dandy biplane-

    I don't think I would have ever got the Poschel. After you revealed the answer, I 'Googled' 'Poschel' and only got three relevant results, two of which resulted in the same page (password protected) and one that didn't load properly!

    Fortunately I don't get too many migraines, normally one, possibly two a year and, according to my doctor, they are mild ones (could have fooled me).
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
    Now for a look at the mystery biplane.

    Grumman(ish)/ Curtiss(ish) undercarriage, bubble canopy (Canadian?), possibly a Canadian car and Foundry FDB-1

  24. #274
    Blast! Beat me to it - although I could actually claim it as I think it is FBD-1 !
    Well done Sandar.

    I have just browsed through a few pages of books and the internet and have found that it is variously described as FDB-1 and FBD-1. Dunno which is correct. Dyslexia or incompetence rules KO
