    Hi Mike
    Inddeed the Gold Bug. Attached a photo with tghe single engine.
    Have not yet figured out whether it was called Gold Bug because of the paint job or that it got the paint job because of the name.

    Your turn, please

    Thank you Walter -wonder why someone would go to the bother of installing three engines when one bigger one would be a lot easier !

    Here's another trimotor of a different sort - don't think it has appeared here before.......

    Good morning boys and girls!
    This is the Loring Barron colonial trimotor of 1932....
    Cheers

    Good morning Carlo - you were quick off the mark today, and absolutely correct about the sadly short-lived Loring. Over to Tuscany -

    Wonder if it was short lived because the door looks as if its been stolen from the local undertakers?

    You got it I figured it wouldn't last long

    Chris

  15. #18840
    Thanks Chris.

    I would not wait too long on this one. I know a certain Scotsman that will be ready to pounce...

    Derived from a land plane that appeared in this thread a long time ago. Why they thought the giant central float was a nice aerodynamic solution is anybody's guess.

    The company is well known.

  17. #18842
    It looks very Dornier.....

  18. #18843
    I won't hold up the show. This is the Farman F.171.

    Open house-

    A nice little sportplane

    It this helps: built/designed by a trio, flown mid-1960s and one of my engines.

  21. #18846
    Morning Walter - thanks for the clue !

    Would it be the Rublič R-7 Racek (Seagull) ?

    Found this - it's a Google Translation so hope it works - http://translate.google.com/translat...menuty-akrobat

    Hi Mike
    That is her!. Built/designed by Zdenek Rublič, Zdenek Hlavkov and Jarl Tomasov, all members of the Svazarn Aero Club in Brno.
    Thank you for the link
    Make us sweat!

  23. #18848
    Don't know about sweating, Walter - my mysteries last about ten minutes on average!

    Try this biplane from the Twenties...

    Stealth biplane?
    I can see only one wing on the Dietrich DP.IX.

  25. #18850
    Woops ! Robert, my mind was elsewhere (a trip to the dentist....)

    You are, of course, almost correct - it's the DP.VIIa, but we won't quibble.
