    from a world-wide well-known flyer

  2. #22877
    No takers on the Udet U.13?

  3. #22878
    apparently not

    It's the U.13

  4. #22879
    Then let's try this twin-boomer.

    You were probably wondering why I didn't jump at Uli's nice floater - quite simply, I didn't know it ! Apart from that rather curious and sadly incomplete 'yellow' website, there is not much info on inter-war German aviation, at least not in English.

    Well I do have the full story on Robert's twin-boomer. It's the first prototype - F-AKCA - of the SPCA III. (the second prototype had wing fillets on the trailing edge). Mike (Pommehomme) kindly obtained for me a copy of Yves Laget's excellent SPCA book, and my French is just about good enough....

    I'm impressed, Mike!
    Of course it is the SPCA.
    Didn't even know that there was a difference between the two aircraft except for the engines. That must be a great book!

    Over to Scotland.

    I suspect that it is, Robert, but I can't say for certain as I didn't read it before sending it on to Mike! However, having regard to how poorly it was packaged for shipping, I don't think that its publisher paid it the respect that its content quality would seem to deserve.

  8. #22883
    Well apart from one slightly crumpled corner, it is just fine, and the contents make it all worthwhile.

    Got a busy day ahead, so will recycle an entry from long ago. I rather like this machine, although it does look a bit like the result of an illicit liaison between a Beaufighter and a DC-2.....

    And this is the Piaggio P.111 from Thompson's Italian aircraft book that Lefty kindly mailed to me years ago and is still a favorite in my library.

  10. #22885
    Indeed it is the one-off Piaggio, Kevin. Glad you're still finding that book useful !

    Over to Texas - - is it warming up over there yet ?

  11. #22886
    Thanks Mike. Yes, the heat is headed this way like a light in a narrow train tunnel.

    Here is a scrubby bipe.

  12. #22887
    Purpose built for a long distance flight.

  13. #22888
    not a good airfield with all the undergrowth
