    Thank you, Baragouin. Here's a curious little creature that I don't think has appeared here before .....


  2. #12502
    Looks like something from the Darmstadt line but not finding anything there.

  3. #12503
    You're barking up the right tree, Kevin.

    Must be the D-22? I think the grainy photo fooled me.

    Indeed it is. The first one, G-ABPX. Over to you, sir.

    How about this moody twin?

    European?

    Not from Europe BG...

    This company designed nearly a couple dozen aircraft but this was the only multi-engine design that flew. They had a trimotor in the works but was never completed.

    I have only seen one other photo of this plane.

    It was powered by two German Siemens-Halske radials which led to it's demise...

    Hi Moses.

    Possibly this fella?...

    The American Eagle A-629.

    That is it G. A pint for you.

  12. #12512
    Thanks Moses. Thanks also for the generous clues.

    Should be easy - from a recognition film...

    Well....Googling for Australian recognition films there is one with an ID of F05021 for a Hudson III. Can't run the film though. Is that too easy to find?
    I would have guessed Lockheed anyway, & always Hudson comes to mind, but knowing the curved ball thats thrown here from time to time....

    Hi Keith.
    Nice detective work Keith, but this aircraft was never used by the RAAF nor is it from the USA...

  15. #12515
    No, I was thinking Japanese, but couldn't find a Betty with twin tails. I'll settle for the dear old Armstrong Whitworth Albemarle ? (There's a wee kink in the horizontal tail surface leading edge which is a dead giveaway !)

    Can't imagine very many ended up in Oz though.........

  16. #12516
    Go to the top of the class Lefty. The Albemarle it is!

  17. #12517
    Thanks G - here's another easy twin -

    Hi Lefty!
    In spite of the Hakenkreuz this is a Hanriot H232/2.01....
    Cheers
    BG

    PS Nice pic by the way!

  19. #12519
    Yes, BG, part of the huge assortment of junk inherited by the Germans...

  20. #12520
    One man's junk ....... !

    And anyway, 'inherited' implies that either it was willingly given or legimately passed. Ask any Frenchman and I doubt that you'd find one who is d'accord.

    I've often had visions (nightmares?) of a gaggle of German officers and aero mechanics touring France in 1940, sipping on 'inherited' Calvados, muttering "What are we going to DO with all this #&*^@#$" ...

    Hi boys and girls!
    after giggling over the last few posts let me submit following undoctored item:

    BG

  24. #12524
    I've obviously struck a sensitive nerve here, so in the interests of Euro-harmony (Dave, Angela, are you listening ?) please substitute the term 'junk' with 'imaginatively designed Gallic flying apparatus'

    (If necessary, you may substitute 'imaginatively' with 'whimsically', 'optimistically' or, quite often, 'bizarrely'.)

    Hi BG.

    Maybe a Danish trainer/reconnaissance aircraft - the Royal Army Aircraft Factory I O - based on the Fokker C.I?
