    Thanks Huub. Now this wee beastie has been here before, but quite a few years ago.

    So this is actually more a memory test than recognising the aircraft.

    It looks like a Miles, but knowing you, I'm quite sure it isn't


  3. #24003
    Not a Miles, Huub. It is in fact American - those pants should be a bit of a clue. In Aerofiles but no pic. Unusual in that aircraft and engine designed by the same company..

  4. #24004
    That Sir, is the Jones S-125 in one of it's many forms. (I think)

  5. #24005
    Well there is a can of worms worthy of the French light aircraft industry here !

    Jane's 1937 has it as the National S-125, powered by a National Motor (unlikely) and produced in Indianapolis.

    The Jones/White machine from Schenectady has a superficial resemblance, but even in its canopied version did not have a side-by-side cockpit ! (As for sellling to China ? Nahhhhh.)

    If you have discovered more since the last time it appeared (2013) Kevin, please let us know ! In the meantime, press on....

    I did find a photo in my steamer trunk of the S-125, labeled National. The same designation between the Jones and National is confusing! I think I hamfisted the answer.

    Moving on, if you all will indulge me. Have this photo with a 1926 date and mention of a Curtiss OX-5 engine(s).

    I don't know what it is, or if it really existed. Multi-winged seaplane fun!

    Looks like the Johns Multiplane on floats?

  8. #24008
    I swear that looks like a Montee monoplane parked on top. Makes no sense!

    It is a little Johnsish.

    The words 'photo' and 'shop' spring to mind, Kevin !. Even if they did have the bright idea of putting floats on that monster, then sticking a Short/Mayo type machine on top for good measure, I very much doubt if they would send it out in a Force 8 gale !
    Looks like April 1 hs come a little early...

  10. #24010
    I think so Mike.

    Will post a new mystery later when I am back at the computer.

  11. #24011
    Onward with something less obtuse.

  12. #24012
    That is a nice picture of a Lublin R.XI

    BTW: The monstrosity posted by Kevin didn't let me rest and I did some photo-detective work.

    I have made a collage of Kevin's picture together with a picture of the Johns Multiplane taken from The latter picture was mirrored by me.
    Now I am quite sure that Kevin's mystery doesn't only look like but indeed is the Multiplane.
    The propeller and some minor spots must have been retouched but I think the rest identical. Even the deflections of the ailerons are the same.

    I wonder what the source of the picture is and if it might indeed has been an April hoax.

    Interesting Robert.

    I think I found the source of the photo. From a 1926 dated Aviation journal. (On my phone so apologies for the quality). What an odd advertisement.

    Right on with the Lublin.

    Very interesting, Kevin!
    Must have been the only company to build aeroplanes and baby buggies.

    Here is my new mystery.

    A one-off from a lesser known European manufacturer.

  16. #24016
    A look into Eastern Europe would be helpful.

    First flight nearly 100 years ago.

  17. #24017
    Ahhh ! That must be the Astra-Sesefski (excuse lack of correct characters) from

  18. #24018
    It is the Astra Sesefsky from Romania.

    Over to Scotland

  19. #24019
    Thank you sir. Here's one that is very easy, but seems to have escaped this forum in the past, so here she is.....

    Hello ! Is there anybody out there ????

  21. #24021
    apparently no one wants to identify the Breda Ba.201

  22. #24022
    Apparently somebody does, Uli ! (I suspect it was too easy, so they were all holding off....) Over to you -

  23. #24023
    Well itís difficult to find the best balance between trivial and challenging. Letís try this. According to my search it should be new here.

    built in two versions (approx. 10 times), either biplane or high-wing

  25. #24025
    Not getting any kind of vibe on this one. When in doubt, Eastern Europe perhaps.
