    Moses is on the right lines - personally I think it looks entirely American, but it ain't. As far as vision is concerned, well, it can't have been much better in a Gee Bee !

    Think I'm going to raise the white flag on this one, can't find on my usual sites.

    Flag is up here too. This one seems to have fallen between the cracks.

    This next one is easier?
    The SEMA-12 was easy.. if I'd just scrolled a bit further down the page before I quit looking and made supper :isadizzy:

    Right, seems like this one has run its course.

    It is a Lorraine-Hanriot LH 41 from 1930.

    I am away for a couple of days, so will leave a nice easy one - if you get it, please carry on !

    Back to my favourite theme - floater/pushers.

    This one is just too generic to get a fix on. It's looks European and thats all I got. Maybe someone else is having more luck.

  7. #132
    Same here, theres nothing really obvious to suggest where its from.

    Throwing in a not particularly ugly French aircraft for the second time in under a fortnight was clearly a cunning plan to throw us off track!

    (and it worked )

    Sorry, boys, I really thought someone would grab this cute Gallic lady.

    She is an F.B.A. (or, as Jane's would have it, Schreck) F.B.A. 310, from 1930.

    The pints are lining up on the bar for me, so let's go for the jugular.

    This record-breaker is a relative of one of my previous mysteries.

    I have left some of the registration on !

  12. #137
    Dang, and had I trolled through some F.B.A. stuff!

    Well we seem to be able to post OK. Really tiresome, these hackers. Moses, can you not organize a wee trip to Kansas with some heavy pals and sort them out ?

  14. #139
    I think Canelo & Ickie are in charge of the Pugilist Dept. Have not had as much time to research this one. Looks French? I think you got us again Lefty.

  15. #140
    I'd say swiss, but I don't have much time on my hands...

  16. #141
    OK fellas, this was a bit naughty of me - said it was related to a previous post, and indeed it is another Darmstadt - the D-18, which set altitude and other records in 1930.

    So what next ? Here's an old aviation quiz faithful....

  17. #142
    Well it looks like some kind of Grumman at first glance. Must be European then...

  18. #143
    Yes, it is more Grumman than a Grumman - but with a difference - and it is European. This is the slightly altered version.

    If I were home I'd be able to find the lower pic since I have it, but....

    while searching I found this -- for your viewing pleasure:

    Great stuff, Rob - there's some fascinating material on YouTube - heaven knows where they get it all - this one's a killer too...

    Maddening new bug after the crash means you can't go directly to the last post in a thread - if this one runs as long as its predecessor, that's going to be a royal PITA !

    Rob- Are you home yet? We need some assistance on this blasted doppleganger!

    No, it's not German either.

    Is this something very obscure like the Hoenningstad Finnmark from ?

    De Vliegende Hollander

  24. #149
    on the button, Ralf ! (Although now I've found out how to do accents, I'd prefer to call it a Hønningstad.)

    And I was wrong about the versions - photo 2 shows the original, amphibian with the sponsons. They were later removed, wing floats added and the sole example ended up as a flying boat.

  25. #150
    Gosh! So it's my turn, thought that was a bit of a long shot.

    Recently I've been fiddling about with '50s and 1960s British airliners (BOAC & BEA) in fs9, things like Viscounts & Herons. Trying to learn how to fly this new-fangled thing called a JET, having some fun (and frustration) with Mr De Havilland's Comet 1 airliners. Only the best people travel in these, separate Ladies and Gentlemens' lavatories, don't you know? Only trouble is they keep blowing up mysteriously...jolly bad show.

    For the purposes of our mysteries, however, I will stick to the flying boat theme. Don't think it got much beyond the prototype stage (is that allowed here?), but the one below - yes, just the one on the right - is interesting. Any ideas?
