    Hi Robert!
    Could she be a Parnall Pike of 1927?
    Cheers

    Over to Tuscany.

    Hello boys and girls!
    This isn't a rare craft but folded up like that I think it should be a bit more intricate....
    Cheers

    Hi Kevin!
    Yessir she's the Loening XSL-1 all folded up (yes I must admit this was one of the funniest pics I came across over the last few days).
    And now the torch is being passed on to Texas!
    Cheers

    Thanks Carlo. (Obviously Lefty was holding back there).


    Here is a nifty little runabout that probably benefited from the icy surface to get airborne, that and a stiff north wind!

    Just got some info of the Farman F.171 it was designed to make transatlantic crossing.

    Good morning Chris
    Hi folks would anybody be good enough to tell me where I could dig to extract a bit more information on the Farman 171? By the way I also discovered that there should have been a transatlantic crossing with that plane and some skeleton information I got thru Aviafrance (but no pic)...that's all I could find on the net….
    Cheers
    Carlo

  12. #18862
    Carlo, I'd try 'Les Avions Farman' by Jean Liron (1984)(Docavia). I think that it's OOP but there are secondhand copies available from online sellers.

  13. #18863
    Mike is correct. I lifted the photo from Les Avions Farman page 109. It does note the 171 was going to be for a Paris to New York flight.

    Back to the little guy, it flew in 1913.

    Hi Kevin,
    I think that is Mr. Weldon B. Cooke from Sandusky, Ohio in his aeroplane

    It is the Cooke tractor biplane! Suds for Uli. It had an inverted inline Jacobs. One of the first instances of a designer doing this apparently.

    http://drc.ohiolink.edu/bitstream/ha...jpg?sequence=2

    He had a promising career in aviation ahead of him, but died sadly a year later in 1914 when a strut failed on his earlier pusher biplane and it crashed to the ground.

  16. #18866
    That's a pitty

    Something conceptually from between the ages (old vs. new):

    Thank you, Uli. After a string of biplanes, perhaps it's time for a monoplane.



    Mike, when the Lévrier was restored by Robert Lefèvre it lost its canopy and went al fresco. It was late donated to the Musée de l'Air and, just to show that it happens not only with the RAF and Science museums, since then it's spent most of its time languishing in the museum reserves.

  21. #18871
    Blanchet JP-60 Sir.

  22. #18872
    Exactly. Same country, same year as Uli's previous offering. Over to you, Kevin.

  23. #18873
    Thanks Mike.

    Keeping with the monoplane theme..


  24. #18874
    That, sir, is the Briggs Special.

  25. #18875
    Good show Mike. More suds.
