    I'm told, by someone who should know, that it is an example of 'installation art'. If that's so, I shan't hurry to attend any exhibitions of such.

    Glad to hear you're home from hospital, Carlo. My poorly ewe has wobbly legs too. So if you can let me know what causes yours, it might be possible to diagnose what is still causing her problem a week on!

    Carlo, good to hear you are back home and on the mend -

    ciao, Mike

    (Mike, I think the vertical installation has a lot to do with lack of floor space, and the presence of children in a very popular museum - the last thing you want is a lot of kids clambering over a fragile old lady like that !)

    Carlo, good you are out of the hospital. Hope things get better for you!

    I have a hunch it's been seen before, but

    Republic XF-91
    The second prototype, 46-681, had an engine failure during takeoff from Edwards AFB in the summer of 1951. Republic test pilot Carl Bellinger escaped from the aircraft just as the tail melted off only 90 seconds into the flight.
    Many Km. of chasing chores around the city today, so it'd be OH

    Hi Chris
    The colour is not exactly military, but the truck/soldiers hint at the Goodyear GA-400 Gizmo?

  10. #20160
    you hit the nail on the head.

    Chris

    over to you.

    Interesting - when looking this up, found that the third prototype had a considerably longer rotor shaft - presumably to prevent a number of unnecessary decapitations in the U.S. Army !

    Shrouded prop design by a famous designer. Was later known under a different name, but remained a prototype only.

    We have been doing this a long time!

    The CG-11 by Clarence Gilbert Taylor (Taylorcraft/Piper fame). Later efforts to market her as Product Design Rover failed.
    Sorry for duplication, but at least I am satisfied that the machine room of most of us (except me, now and then) works.

    Barking at Mike for the next one.

    It should be the Loire 102 "Bretagne" (prototype version)

    Good to see you back, Carlo!

    That bird is the one and only De Havilland DH.81 Swallow Moth.

    I guess relating the posts of our both Mikes at least two forumites here knew the answer as well.
