    Thanks for the welcome! A picture then of a subject I am 90% sure what it is... Would also be interested to find out more about it

    A rather fruitless attempt to enter the after-war private market. I wonder if this plane simply came some years to early, the design is not so very different to a Piper Tomahawk.

    Over to Walter
    Miles always were slightly ahead of the game ; as the tale (or more correctly.... tail) of the Miles M.52 shows.

    I think this time it was designed & built by the apprentices, not by Blossom, & I think it must have suffered from the big blister canopy turbulence on the tail unit. Must read the Peter Amos book again.

    Moses, indeed American! Likely a fairly well known designer (well, he and his brother) played a role in this one, although none of his design became a big commercial succes. As i said, I am not 100% sure on the identity, but i will post later uncropped picture showing another type that was here in the thread.

    The two full shots that I have of this plane; the one in the background should give a good hint... I am quite sure it is of the same designer.

    Has to be a Rocheville design. Not readily finding a designation though.

  19. #21094
    Indeed a Rocheville design yes! I cannot 100% pinpoint it to a specific design, but I am through deduction relatively sure (unless someone has a good source for the Rocheville designs) it is the Rocheville Special (Hisso powered). Registration 5922. If it was Charles or Harry that did the design (or together), no idea... Would be interesting to find out more. BTW, do any results sometimes warrant more discussion in the Historical Wings part of the forum? OR is this not the right forum for that? Seems there is not really a forum on the internet where Golden Age types are discussed.

    Over to you Moses!

    I might know someone with the answer to that.....his late father was a designer at Miles, before moving to Britten - Norman

    More discussion is always welcomed. If a topic were to go really long, at that point I might suggest opening a dedicated thread for it under Historical Wings.

    That said, pressing on with a futuristic looking flying boat.


  22. #21097
    This flying boat is more known as having a pusher engine arrangement but a few tractor versions were tested.

    Edit: More accurate to say it was derived from an earlier similar pusher flying boat.


    From a well-known company.
