    Confident that the Walrus is correct so I will go ahead and post the next one. Don't want to hold things up since I will be away until late in the day tomorrow.

    Well, unless my sources are wrong (!) I am 100% certain this is a Caproni Ca.97
    This was another unusual aircraft, as the happy buyer could have the option of one, two or three engines ! This one had three Lorraine-Dietrich 130hp jobs.

    So on, like Monty Python, to something completely different.....

    You are correct, and yes it is out of the westland book, all my other ones which might contain any oddities are back home!

    That nice Russian fighter might be a Polikarpov ITP (but I'm not sure!)

    It's nice, it's Russian, but it ain't a Polikarpov !

    Maybe the 2nd prototype of the Yak-3?

    Right-o on the Caproni.

    Yup. Otherwise known as the I-30-2. Or half-a-dozen other designations - can never get my head round Russian logic !

    in your nearest cantina.

    Thanks.

    How about this one? Stylish and deadly (or so it would seem).

    Haven't had much time to look at this one (been somewhere interesting today - more later) but the first obvious impression, i.e. American, I am beginning to doubt. OK, it's flash paintwork, spats etc, but the fin/rudder just don't look American, and sesquiplanes were never popular there.

    And those guns? Tacked on for a movie or something ? They just don't look right !

    My first guess would have been American too, now I'm thinking maybe from South America?


    BTW. After complaining about my lack of resources down here while looking for books for my dissertation in the library today I happened upon Janes All The Worlds Aircraft, not just the current one, but about 30+ editions back to about 1927 :d:d:d

  11. #111
    Well, I have 36 Jane's going back to 1926, and this b****r ain't in any of them !

  12. #112
    It's not from over here...

  13. #113
    Have been a bit preoccupied..................

    Assuming that is the 163 on display at East Fortune. No such luck seeing one over on this side of the pond that I know of. Very cool Mike!


    As far as the mystery, I can only think of one other major hint (other than it's not from Eastern Europe) and that will give it away for sure. The gun placement is real.

    I thought Duxford had swapped or sold a 163 with a collection over there?
    Can't remember who though.

  16. #116
    Something for everybody up here, James !

  17. #117
    And according to this, there are at least three over there, Kevin !

    Is it another licence-built machine based on a British design Moses? There's look of the Vickers Vincent/Vildebeest about her.
    The twin VGO machine guns may seem to indicate this too????:isadizzy:

    I'm not actually involved with the Skeeter thing now as he's no longer based at the museum.

    Its an odd thing but it is a nice little machine.

    Looks like Duxford sent theirs to Seattle. Didn't know that. The mystery is another Spanish Civil War refugee. The French SEMA 12 or SAB-SEMA 12 depending on your source.


    This next one is easier?

  21. #121
    Blast ! I had chapter & verse on that SEMA, too, just looked in all the wrong places !

    This big baby is a Farman F-180 Oiseau Bleu.

    There goes the Farman in record time. Lefty

    Looks like an American racing type machine, but maybe thats too obvious?

  25. #125
    My guess it has to be either French or Italian. How did the pilot see anything!
