    Actually it's an interned B 29 but that's close enough ! - over to you !

    I hope someone is keeping record of all the ones not on Aerofiles cause here another. The company is in Aerofiles at least the same name. This one not included. Circa 1915

    It's a Schmitt Biplane Tractor.
    As I said not in Aerofiles if made by the Schmitt company listed.

    I see an Ercoupe in the background.

    That's all I have.

    It looks to have Gardan Minicab and/or Sipa S.90 similarities but, if so, I can't find anything of the sort that matches the photograph.

    No French connection, I believe.
    Not in aerofiles, but USA. Flown 1961 and 155hp Franklin engine.

    Found it eventually, Walter. It's the Phelps Li'l Spitfire.

    Hi Mike
    That is her. Thank you for the (better) photo

    Thank you Walter. Here's something of similar vintage - yet another attempt to bring the joys of flight to the masses. This one could have been yours for the price of a small car -

    Hi Mike
    The Saalfield Skyscooter by Herman A. Saalfield (USA). First flown 12 October 1960.
    Understand it was a basic Bensen B-8 gyrocopter with a streamlined body enclosure

  15. #20590
    That's the one, Walter, although I think it was actually spelt Skyskootor, presumably to distinguish it from other Skyscooters ! Over to you -

    I think this is the Otto Pusher Biplane in German East Africa.
