    I'll ignore that (Who beat both Australia and France on their last two encounters, then ?? )

    The mystery is the SA-40 by C.J.Erasmus , 1933. Open House, please....

    Tough crowd.

    For the record Mike, I did search South Africa but never turned up the SA-40.


    Let's continue with the southern hemisphere theme.

    That one turned up during my search for the Erasmus.

    The Everson Evo 2 from

    Kiwifruit it is.

    Over to Robert.

    I hope this one has the correct balance between too easy and too difficult.

    This was the final version of a type that was built about dozen times, most of which varied more or less slightly in construction.
    The shown aircraft was the only one of the type with a radial engine, others had a low-powered water-cooled inline engine.

    Could that be the Le Rhône powered Avro 554 Antartic Baby? The photos I can find indicate that this had more elliptical wing tips than the standard Babies but I cannot find any photographs which clearly illustrate those wing tips to enable a direct comparison.

    It is indeed the Avro Antarctic Baby, Mike.

    Possibly the only aircraft in history where it was required that it could be put together with hands in gloves.

    Santé

    Thank you, Robert.

    Here's something broadly contemporaneous with the Baby. But whilst the Baby might have been described as pretty, even by trying hard, one couldn't have been more complimentary about this one than by describing it as utilitarian.

    Ahh, I've dined well, it being Burn's Night, on haggis, along with bashed neeps and tatties, washed down with a glass of Islay's finest. But enough of such trivialities. The lack of response, to the latest mystery, seems to necessitate a clue. Well, how about the suggestion that this aeroplane was powered by only half an horse power!

  13. #24063
    Well congratulations on your choice of supper, Mike (where do you get a haggis in your part of Gaul?? Do you have an old recipe ?) We had an identical meal, but with a cask-strength Aberlour rather than an Islay malt. Just can't handle the phenol kick of those...
    Your mystery machine is the Central Centaur IV. Your reference to half a horsepower had me puzzled for a moment, then the drachma dropped....

  14. #24064
    That's the kite, Mike, the Central Centaur - although your intervention deprived me of the opportunity to play my next clue, namely to suggest that it was a half attempt at man powered flight!

    As to the haggis, it's home made - one of the advantages of having one's own herd of sheep. When did you last see ovine lungs on the butcher's slab? My wife makes it to her own recipe, which she has fine tuned over years of production. However she tells me that if I were to dislose it here, I'd have to shoot all this thread's users!

  15. #24065
    Thanks Mike. We found a new haggis supplier - it is the only time you will find my better half eating offal of any kind - no liver, sweetbreads, tripe, etc for her!

    I know some of our American friends are sensitive on such matters, so we'll move on - here's a (non-floating) floater - and a parasol to boot -

    That's the one, Uli !

    If we are going to have to avoid photos that are well known to you, sir, we might as well give up now !

    Unfortunately, holding back has the same effect

    Here is my next offer

    I don't know why, but I was convinced it came from former Czechoslovakia.

    Cheers,
