    FPSP is the "Forca Publica de Sao Paulo", the biplane seems to be from 1925 (sorry, my knowledge of the Portuguese language is close to nil).

    I found some links with a few more photos of that plane:

    Somebody has built a model of the "Sao Paulo" and it seems that there is a replica somewhere in a museum.

    Next mystery will follow soon.
    Hi Robert!
    I'm far from being fluent in portuguese but I can easily understand at least 95% of a given text if necessary I'll be glad to help for a better understanding (I think I'm much better anyway of the terrible computer made make-shift translations…
    Cheers

    Thanks for your offer, Carlo, but that's not necessary for me.

    The original plane was built in a small series from which the shown mystery got a major redesign with a repositioned wing and cockpit.

    Could she be british (i.e. Vickers)?

    Not British, Carlo.

    The manufacturer is very well known and has built aircraft already before WW1.

    Once in a while a mystery comes along that bothers me. This is one of those.

    The front end has a European feel while the empennage looks Uncle Sam.

    The wheel pants and struts have an Avia look and the fuselage has a slight Caproni shape.

    The small monoplane in the background might be Eastern Europe?

    All that said I keep thinking something Fokkery with your last clue.

    Been through all my 1920's transport/airliner archives without much luck yet. Anyone else spinning around?

  10. #18535
    Kevin, the manufacturer is included in your answer.

    The mystery plane in this redesigned form remained a one-off and ended its life in Canada

  11. #18536
    Because of the fin/rudder shape, I was working on Fokker F XI , but that wasn't getting me anywhere.....

    Kevin has cracked the nut!

    It is the Fokker F-14A which flew as NC844W and ended up as CF-AUD after a take-off crash.

    In the original picture the plane bears still its experimental registration, so probably the pants were removed sometime after the photo.

    Next hint would have been that the original plane was a parasol!

    Congratulations to Kevin!

    Nice find Robert. Your last clue sealed it's fate!


    And now for something completely different-


  15. #18540
    Nice find, Kevin!

  16. #18541
    The engine and cockpit looks Blackburn B-2 but the rest ?

    Chris

  17. #18542
    Not a Brit design Chris. She is a long way from home...

    Just guessing again mod. Arado Ar66

    Not a German effort either. This was a one-off by a designer who built two planes; one in 1910 and then this one in the early 1930's. Him and his wife wanted to fly it around the world...

  20. #18545
    Robert, it appears you knew this one straight away. Might as well move us along.

  21. #18546
    Your wish shall be fulfilled, Kevin.

    It is the Day Special from Charles Day who made a trip round the world with his wife Gladys in his biplane.

    I knew that plane before by chance and that exotic lady in the middle immediately rang a bell.

    By the way, I hope the forum is ok, I had several fruitless attempts today to enter the forum.

  22. #18547
    That is it Robert.

    Here is the best photo of it.

    We are aware that SOH has had some connectivity issues today. Hopefully things are straightened out now.

    Welcome to my world. I have difficulties accessing the site every morning !

    Mike, same problem here. I think, in Central European Morning Time - when it is deep night overseas - there is regularly maintenance going on in the forum.

    Here is my next mystery.
