    Did we completely run out of airplanes to ID or is everyone just on hiatus?

    Greetings! Hope everyone is well. Have not been around much of late unfortunately. Life can be so demanding at times...

    Here is a large transport under construction. Any takers?

    Apparently very muddy or greasy that day.

    Wow! I've not a clue but what a great detail shot!

    Only two were built. The first was a bomber and then this transport. Both were underpowered and unsuccessful. Circa 1925.

    Oh goody ! Now that we have lost Aerofiles' search function, the same in AviaFrance has succumbed to a similar bug...... Our little world is falling apart...

    Strange. One can search there against the year, purpose and key word but not against the manufacturer.

    Edit: I'm wrong - one can select from the year and purpose lists and enter a key word, but then clicking on 'ok' seems consistently to produce a nil result!

    I noticed the AviaFrance issues as well. Gosh.

    a mutt is a mixture of two breeds which this one is. Clodomiro Figueroa out of chile made this mixture of Bristol M.1C fuselage and a wing from a Ansaldo SVA aircraft.
    Around 1928. Flew once at El Bosque but scared the pilot so much. The wing was flapping on the flight.

    Mmm. It's quiet here.
    May I use the lull to request an ID ? What is this British flying boat?

    This is not a proper wot, because I don't know the answer.

    Supermarine Solent G-AAAB

    Bit more on this ! It was originally the Nanok (polar bear) as the three-engined Southampton was called, destined for the Danish Government. They weren't entirely happy with the machine and cancelled the order. Fortunately, Arthur T Guinness (of brewing fame) was in need of a flying yacht and so it became Solent G-AAAB. Ultimately scrapped in 1931.

    Arthur was better known as Ernest Guinness, who subsequently commissioned Supermarine Air Yacht G-AASE. However he was not happy with the result of his order and refused to take delivery. Instead it was sold to a wealthy American, Mrs June James. After a forced landing near Cherbourg, it ditched in the Gulf of Naples and was damaged beyond repair. In the meantime, Guinness bought Saro Cloud G-ABHG.

    Thank you all!

    The collective amount of knowledge here always impresses me. A pity this thread is failing...

    Since thread slow. Thought I would try something else.

    I just came across this mystery? DC-4's had round windows and DC-6 had square windows. Then I was working on US Marines file and trying to get exact designations. I have this pix of "90414" with round windows and then with square windows? The only thing I could think of was maybe they painted the windows outside to look like square ones. The nose length looks like DC-4 not longer like DC-6.

    I believe the window frames are painted square to look more modern.
