    Le Boisavia B.50 'Muscadet' de 1946, peut-être?

  2. #16702
    Off beam here, Mike. This is the delightful SABCA S.20 Libellulle OO-APU.

    The SABCA it is!
    Hardly to believe that this sleek beauty flew less than 10 years later than the clumsy Parks from the mystery before.

    Over to Mike.

    Too much Muscadet, peut-être!

  5. #16705
    Such a shame that the Libellulle 'disparu par faits de guerre'......

    This one, I'm afraid, wouldn't win any beauty contests -

    East coast USA, one-off floater version, Wright motor.

  7. #16707
    OK that's enough. It is the New Standard D-28 from 1929. It's in Aerofiles but no photo, which came from Juptner.

    OH please....

  8. #16708
    Don’t know if this has been used before. Good pix that I found but had no caption. And I hope you guys can find a better pix of it. One aircraft only made.

    Chris, this is a toughie - not much to go on with the lack of a tail. Would I be correct in assuming this is a US number ?

  10. #16710
    Yes this one should be in aerofiles. This is the first aircraft in a string of famous aircraft ending around WWII.

    The bird looks pretty much like the Winstead Specialwhich is believed to be related to Walter Beech and Lloyd Stearman. (?)

    No this is not the Winstead Special. It's a famous name you will recognize when the reveal. I do company pics of each aircraft which is how I came across this aircraft. As I said it didn't have a label on the pix but I used the description in Aerofiles to figure out which one it was. Hopefully when named you guys can come up with a more complete pix. One aircraft in the series I wasn't able to find a pix of. I like the give and take after finding out what it is. Which is why I did one on "Couzinet" when that one was on the forum. Also I have given the name of the aircraft already but will reveal at the 48hr mark.

    Chris

    Going to sleep so will reveal.

    As I said already named it cryptically just for fun.

    D. on’t know if this has been used before.
    G. ood pix that I found but had no caption.
    A. nd I hope you guys can find a better pix of it.
    One aircraft only made.

    See much of Pete, Ike, Mike the racers and DGA6-15. The pix comes from Howard album and wasn't captioned but went by the
    description in Aerofiles. Now "Flyabout" is the only Howard I haven't got a pix for. Hopefully you guys can come up with a better pix.

    Chris

    Could it be that somebody confused Flyabout and DGA-1?

    I found pictures of a two-seater with larger-span lower wing on eBay that perfectly fit to the description of the Flyabout in Aerofiles, while Chris’ pic shows a three-seater that would fit to the description of the DGA-1.

    In this pdf (page 2) there is a Howard biplane that looks pretty much like Chris' mystery and which is captioned as DGA-1.

  16. #16716
    That would mean that the confusion is in aerofiles.

    I found this pix in what was supposed to be Howard's personal photo album. Which was for sale on Ebay I think. I have another pix which resembles the pix in the article but would be the DGA-2. The descriptions in Aerofiles has one as 1 seat, 2 seat and 3 seat. This pix looks like a 1s and the one I used has 3 seats. The flyabout has 2 seats. I think the personal photo album has more validiity than this article.

    Found this in my archives. Howard Flyabout circa 1926.

    I found a similar pix but was labeled DGA-2. Now for you engine experts if Aerofiles is correct. We need a pix of the DGA-2 which had a Hisso 150hp 1 seat mod. Standard J-1. The engines on the pix of the DGA-1 and Flyabout seem similar as both were according to Aerofiles OX-5's

    While some of you troll the depths of the Howard/DGA lineage, here is a another bipe to move things along.

    Thanks Kevin. If you have more info on the operator, I'd appreciate it.

    Meanwhile, a horrid, grainy picture of a daring young man in his flying trapeze (with missing empennage)...
    (Double bonus points for the name and age of the pilot).

    Could this be the Laird Baby Biplane with Matty Laird at the stick?
    If so, his age was probably 16 years then.
