Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    Twin of post WW2 era

  2. #1302
    This one has a few different names. Will go with Constructions Aeronautics Taliedo Q.R.14 Levriero.

  3. #1303
    Correct Moses03!.
    I've also seen it described as the Marinavia QR-14. Registration was I-MFTA and the sole example was scrapped around 1952. Engines btw were two Alfa Romeao 110bis (130hp each).
    The ball is in your court

    Here is one that seemed promising at the time.

  5. #1305
    Presumably French - wouldn't be a de Monge 120 ? Can't find any pics.

  6. #1306
    Probably French (And Lefty's most likely right) but I haven't ruled out the possibility it's Russian..
    Intel i7-7770K Kaby Lake @4.2Ghz, Cooler Master 212 Evo, 16 Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM, Asus ROG Strix Z270H motherboard, Asus RTX 2070 Turbo 8Gb, Cooler Master 700 Watt PSU, Windows 10 64-bit.

    Not a de Monge but on the right track.

    Here is a side view showing the unusual gear setup.

    Edit: Another pic showing it in the field. Photos are hard to come by on this one.

  8. #1308
    Time to move on I think. This one is a Schneider Sch-10 Type M of 1924. The company later merged with Avimeta in 1928. Not sure what became of the plane.

    Some info here: http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchi...0-%200802.html


    The next one had an oddball name...

  9. #1309
    Didn't search back far enough ! Quite advanced for 1924, that Schneider...

  10. #1310
    Struggling with the new one too - looks very like the Martin GMP/T-1 - tail unit, gear, etc almost identical.

  11. #1311
    Similar yes, but could the Martin do this?

  12. #1312
    Er, why would it want to ??

  13. #1313
    OK, found it. The Barnhart Twin 15 Wampus Kat (Oh dear).

    'Demolished in hangar by a freak windstorm'. Well, as they say, it's an ill wind.........

  14. #1314
    That would be it. Have a root beer.

  15. #1315
    Nah - I'm back on the real stuff, thanks.:friday:

    If you like old airliners, and unlovely ones at that, how about this crate, which squeezed in 10 unfortunate souls, who at least didn't have to look at it.

    And, the thing that looks like a Cross of Lorraine isn't - this machine is not French.

  16. #1316
    The gear arrangement is a little unusual for this vintage.

  17. #1317
    Looks German..

    No, the flying supermarket trolley isn't German, Ferry.

    I am ashamed to say that this vision of ugliness was designed by a Scotsman.

  19. #1319
    Assuming it's from the UK but no luck on my end.

  20. #1320
    Right. George Handasyde, the Scot in question, set up a business with Helmut Martin called, wait for it - Martinsyde !
    George split in 1920, and tendered for a contract for a plane to do the Adelaide-Sydney run. Hence the Handasyde H.2.
    The prospect of this brute wheezing its way over the Outback must have had the underwriters quaking in their boots.

    Here's a zappy chappy you will all know....

    Interesting. Give it another wing, hang a radial engine in the front, and get rid of that silly nosewheel, and you have the ANEC III

    Arsenal 0-101 test aircraft from France

  23. #1323
    Wout, you got the Arsenal.

    And James, (I presume you know this already) components from the Handasyde production run were grabbed by ANEC, who had been subcontracted to build the Handasyde (the miserable Scotsman never paid them), and subsequently used in the ANEC III !

    Over to Wout.

    twin with radial engines

    Reminds me a lot of a messed up DC-2 if it wasn't for the nosewheel....
