Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    Thank you, Jim. Here's another example of the handiwork of an idiosyncratic designer.


  2. #20852
    I've found a better picture of this machine. French designer, Spanish manufacturer.


  3. #20853
    As the images of the aeroplane itself do not seem to ringing any bells, may I try one of the designer before, if this does not work, throwing in the towel and declaring open house?

    She's a Sablier type 100 par Vizcaya Aviacion. If correct OH

    Welcome back, Carlo. I hope that you've weathered the storm and that things are not too bad for you at present.

    The little single seater is indeed a (the?) Sablier type 100 as manufactured by la Vicaina Aviacion at Fabrica de Garay y Sesumago (or Fabrica de Gomas Garay, according to another source), Viscaya, Bilbao.

    Carlo having declared open house, whilst awaiting the next challenge can anyone tell me why Georges Sablier was dressed in thigh length boots, lederhosen kurze and leather gloves for that photograph?

    Some of these French chappies do have rather exotic personal proclivities. Had they been Wellington Boots, I would have suggested he was about to go out and check on his sheep.......

    ....... puts me in mind of someone else ...

    I fear that M. Sablier might have searched in vain for sheep in the 16th arrondissement, which is where in Paris he lived. I doubt that the sheep could have afforded the rents in that quarter. I suspect that the only sheep that he was likely to have found there would have been butchered, cooked and on plates in the restaurants.

    N.b. an error above, that I can't now revise - the company was la Vizcaina Aviacion. I omitted the z!

    Might I suggest, SC, that you make it a little more difficult by removing the serial number from the image.

  11. #20861
    Well, at first glance you see the vulture engine then realize it's a part of the Hawker family. In this case a Henley testbed.

    The serial was an afterthought and did not search on it.

    We needed an easier one anyways. Mike's Sablier was rough enough for me. (Kudos to Carlo!).

  12. #20862
    Easy indeed after the Franco/Spanish mystery ...... the Vulture test bed it is and over to you .....
    ( and I left the serial there deliberately pour encourage Les autres )

  13. #20863
    In the spirit of pour encourage Les autres, I offer up the next mystery.

    [I think this is a Vickers "Windsor". If correct again OH please (probably type 461)
    Cheers

    It is the mighty Windsor.

    Something different. This is the Republic RC-1.
    What name is used for this aircraft
    Name at least 5 main differences with the production RC-3 Seabee (more also allowed)
    Attached Thumbnails Attached Thumbnails Republic RC-1.jpg  

  17. #20867
    Differences -
    (1) Tapered wing v constant chord on RC-3
    (2) Full cantilevered wing (strutted on RC-3)
    (3) Floats unstrutted unlike RC-3
    (3) Gear geomtery altered on RC-3
    (4) Recessed wheel wells, later removed
    (5) Engine recessed into wing - later mounted on top
    (6) RC-3 engine had 40hp extra.

    OK for starters, Walter ?

  18. #20868
    You've forgotten to mention, Mike, that Thunderbolt was the name given to the RC-1!

  19. #20869
    Indeed, Mike. Which reminds me of my favourite name given to its illustrious Republic namesake....

    Hi Mike
    You are correct on all points.
    Pomme Homme already mentioned the name Thunderbolt for the RC-1
    Others differences: 2-seat RC-1 and 4-seat RC3
    Simplified construction on the RC-3 with fewer parts/components.
    Squared top of vertical tail

    You are invited for the next challenge

  21. #20871
    Thank you, Walter.

    Here's a rather plain biplane...sorry, sesquiplane. I expect it to be gone by morning !
