Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    Actually, I took great care to say 'wee twin' as opposed to 'twin engine'. It did, after all, have twin props !

    As to the AS.37, I got most of the info from this thread -

    https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/thr...projects.9070/

    (which included a post from someone called avion ancien, who didn't seem to object to that designation...... )

    The more one reads, the more one learns. Thus I hope that my knowledge now is greater than when I posted on that thread over four years ago. To the best of my knowledge the only version of the AS.37 with tractor props is the Starck-Nickel SN.01 F-PYBQ. But I'm content to be corrected.

    As there were no overnight offerings, here's a curious little aeroplane to be going on with. But no prizes for stating what powered it!

    This must be the Shapley Kittiwake (G-AFRP?)..sorry for my long silence but I was in the Dolomites for one week to avoid the terrible heat of last week...by the way after a few days of lower temperatures a new hot wave is expected for the Whole of nest week nstarting Tomorrow...terrific!

    Indeed, Carlo, that tubby wee fellow is the ill-fated Shapley Kittiwake II. Over to Italy.

    'Waterfalls roar' ? Ah yes, Niagara.

    This forum is getting more like a cryptic crossword every day !

    So when someone posts a picture of the Hendy Hobo, will the response be 'rapids thunder', and, if so, maybe the AC-35 will elicit 'gentle outpourings'?

    Hello boys and girls!
    This is only a partial view of a very common and famous craft I'm sure you won't have any difficulty in uncovering her….
    Cheers

    Maybe the answer is To Be Found in Aerofiles, Carlo ???

    The small door is No.151 I think - the oil cooler air exit flap.
    Belongs to the mighty Avenger!

    Not a fan of the partial bit to identify but it looks like a Grumman TBF Avenger.

  12. #19737
    And there was I entering into the spirit of the new cryptic forum - 'To Be Found' = TBF !

    A nice 2-seat amphibian. Hope she did not appear earlier.

    It has appeared once before (posted by me!). Let's see who else knows it.

    That blue-winged duck is not in aerofiles, if I am right.

    Yes, now I see. All is clear. When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.
