    Wiki says 2 built I couldn't find my source of French stuff with confirmation of that. Just found my French stuff and only 1 built as the aircraft had an accident during testing.

    That's the Davidson Gyropter powered by steam engines but probably never left the ground.

    Edit: Found a contemporary newspaper article about this monstrosity.

    Help please, Savoia Marchetti S62?

    Fumbling thru russian sites Yesterday I came across this lovely floatplane named "Mitrofan Korovkin" (1894-1931 Naval Aviation Academy in Baku).I thought at first it might have been soviet built but she doesn't quite tally with any pics of the kind in my possession. On the other hand she has a very very strong resemblance with the Savoia Marchetti S62 (1926)...how an italian floatplane ended up in Russia is unknown to me....anyway I'm asking whether somebody of you folks could substantiate my ID for which I thank you in advance….
    Cheers

    Carlo, the S.62 was license built in Russia as MBR-4.

    Have a look here:

    I guess, my proposal of the Davidson Gyropter is good enough to go on with the next mystery.

    Here we go with a floater.

    Better jump in before that floater guy gets wise. S.P.C.A. 20 Robert.

    Thanks very much Robert you're a scholar and a gentleman!
    Cheers

    Indeed, Kevin, it is the SPCA.

    Thought that the wish of a certain person for an SPCA floater should finally be fulfilled.

  17. #18892
    The man with the book? I suspect he's half way through a bottle of Laphroaig after this afternoon's match!

  18. #18893
    Thanks Robert.

    And now for something completely different, a sport biplane.


  19. #18894
    Mike, I think you are winding me up as usual, and are fully aware that Laphroaig, with its dominant medicinal -tasting phenols, is quite undrinkable for those of us Scots who care about whisky.

    It is produced largely for Americans....give me a Speyside any time.

  20. #18895
    I'm looking forward to joining in, but I haven't guessed a single one yet. You guys play hard ball.

  21. #18896
    Hang on in there, E.A. , it is worth it - we have all learned a lot over the years from this forum. You would think by now we would have run out of flying mysteries (and quite a few have been recycled) but they keep turning up !

    I'll send you a PM.

  22. #18897
    Our little sport biplane was built in 1929. Not bad for the depression era USA. Kind of off the beaten path as far as location though.

    This is the Marston & Ordway Doodle Bug.

    Photo courtesy of the New Hampshire Aviation Museum. They were very gracious when I was researching this particular aircraft a year or two ago.

    Another photo in the gallery here: https://www.nhahs.org/photo-gallery

    Open board then!

    Interesting, Kevin - my grandad was working just up the road in Franklin N.H. around that time !
