Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    Of course it is, Robert ! Over to you -

    Always amused by those exhaust stacks - in my motor-enthusiast days, it was always stressed how important is was for engine efficiency to 'tune' the exhaust system. Doesn't seem to apply to aircraft - just stick 'em out the top !

  2. #21227
    Ah, but were you, Mike, a motor enthusiast in 1917?

  3. #21228
    It is beginning to feel like it, Mike..

  4. #21229
    Thanks, Mike.
    Here is a floater similar to the last mystery but definitely not a Junkers.

    At least it seems to have some sort of "tuned" exhaust...

    Not a Hansa-Brandenburg.
    This floater is from after the war.

  7. #21232
    Now, Chris' guess wasn't too far away from the correct answer.

    This floater is from a famous designer.

  8. #21233
    Ahh, the penny has dropped - it is the Caspar S.1, designed, of course, by Ernst Heinkel.

  9. #21234
    It is the Caspar S.1!

    The last design of Ernst Heinkel as an employee before establishing his own company where he manufactured the same aircraft as Heinkel HE 1.

    This is the sole Caspar S.1 which found its way to Norway after a competition in Gothenburg/Sweden.

    Over to you, Mike!

    Thanks Robert - been tough to get back in this morning.

    This one has been here before but quite a long time ago, I think......

    Is that the NDN Firecracker?

  12. #21237
    It is, Mike. Apparently it looked rather better than it flew.

    Over to to France. (What is the French for 'lockdown' ? I bet it's 'Le Lockdown' ?)

    ..... then you'd lose your bet, Mike. It's le confinement - a word subsequently borrowed by the English language, before it decided to source most of its new words from the USA!

    Here's a biplane that's attracting a fair amount of attention - but, sadly, attention was about all it attracted!

  14. #21239
    Well the M.Hulot character with blazer and bicycle clips just has to be French - the chap behind with the beret would tend to confirm that -so I reckon we have a Gallic obscurity here ?

  15. #21240
    So I can delete that biplane now from my list, I had this one as a prepared mystery too.

    I will hold back on this one since I will be on vacation from Saturday on and I don't like to declare Open House.

    Good luck to the rest of you with Mikes' mystery.

  16. #21241
    It appears that we hunt in the same places, Robert! Have an enjoyable holiday.

    Now what, Mike, might lead you to think that anything I post might be gallic?

  17. #21242
    Well it wasn't in my queue! Anyways, it is the sole Littoral Aviation E.111.

  18. #21243
    ..... and, apparently, the sole photograph of this short lived, inadequately performing 1939 aeroplane. Thus across the pond to Texas we must now go.

  19. #21244
    The pond dried up from the heat I think!

    A twin under construction...

  20. #21245
    I'll have a stab at the CAC Woomera ? Lack of dihedral on the tailplane, though....

    Wonder why the guy on the right of that group is 'ghosted' out ??

  21. #21246
    ... long time exposure (in a dark hall)

  22. #21247

  23. #21248
    Thanks Kevin.

    Here is yet another parasol, from a well-known stable. Expect this one to disappear quickly !

    It looks like the Austrian flag on the tail. So something out of the Hopfner/Hirtenberg stable with an Argus AS.10 engine?

  25. #21250
    Yes, it's an Argus motor, but it is not Austrian. Now where's near Austria ???

    If nobody answers, I'll understand why - I've been getting my favourite message all morning - it is getting worse, Moderators!
