    Ta, Kevin.

    Can't remember whether I posted this before - someone looking for a fight !

    My first thought : ' That looks like a Cessna Birddog with a turboprop conversion." And it is! It's a SIAI-Marchetti SM.1019.

    So is Yann going to post and say it is home on the range?

    I'm thinking we might try the "no mercy" rule for a bit; meaning, if you know the thing then tell us straight away! (I'm guilty as well)

    Methinks Lefty was trying to get out of having to dig up an ugly, East European twin-boom floatplane that was designed in France. :whistle:

    It's the DeHavilland Canada C-8A Buffalo Augmentor Wing Jet-STOL research aircraft, aka the NASA 716 (N-716NA), nicknamed the "Bisontennial" as it was made in the bicentennial year 1976.

    Better...?

    Now we are cookin'.

    Ferry!


    Not to discount Lefty who apparently knew this one as well...

    Here's a photo of a four-engined Buffalo landing on an aircraft carrier..:

    (Note that the aircraft has no tailhook..!)

    Here's a cute little aircraft:

    Looks like something the kids might have pulled out of a pack of cornflakes in the fifties.
    Er, am I wrong or is this a light aircraft ??????

  17. #1242
    A few years earlier, very light and from a major manufacturer. Couldn't find anything else on my disk to post.

    Ferry, I can't believe that mine of obscurities is drying up !

    Anyway, found this one - indeed by a major manufacturer (of light aircraft ), namely a Piper PA-8 Skycycle, eh ?

    (Interesting - the main net source says the forward fuselage is made from an F4U drop-tank, whereas the Jane's of the period says it is from a P-38. Anyone confirm which is right ? Kevin ?)

  19. #1244
    !

    Wikipedia claims the fuselage of the PA-3 Cub Cyclewas made from a F-4U Corsair belly tank, not the Pa-8.

    Well, we have lots of floaty pushers to keep jhefner happy (!) but here's something instead that maybe proves that not everything ugly came out of Gaul !

    Renault 12S engines? Thinking a one-off Sud-Ouest/SNCASO or SNCAC number. Hmm...

    But lefty said this wasn't French built. So that wasn't it.

    P.S. my comment was in jest. I am really enjoying this thread. I used to moan that "all the good planes have already been made for Flight Simulator." Boy, was I wrong.

    Gosh, you are right. I looked at the pic and dove right into the books. :isadizzy:

    Edit: Will pass along info on the Skycycle if I have anything.

  24. #1249
    By the way, Kevin, those engines are by Argus...........
