    Anderlik-Varga-Iskola-Sport Avis 2 ?

    And if so, OH please, I have nothing to offer now.

    My appologies.


    I'm late in getting back to this, but yes, you were correct. It was the XO4U "Corsair" scout bomber prototype.

    Sorry for the late reply, but didn't get a chance to get back on-line here until today.

    I'm working on updated textures for your wonderful rendition and should have them out soon!


    Miami, FL

    Interestingly, only yesterday I was reading an article concerning the restoration of one of this breed.

  6. #24456
    only 10 built !

  7. #24457
    Ahh,but what are you going to call it ??

  8. #24458
    Come on, Mike. Step into the minefield!

  9. #24459
    I think there is a clear designation. (But I know the registration. )

  10. #24460
    I'd hoped that someone else might step up to the mark. But as it seems not, I must say that I believe that this is a CFA Salmson D.7 Cri-cri Major - and not a D.57 Phryganet, because the rear glazing of the cockpit is wrong for that. More specifically, I think that it is F-BFND,

    It's always been a source of amazement to me that the Compagnie française d'aviation (which had been, more simply, the Societé des moteurs Salmson before the war) could have taken a design that was seemingly antiquated in the thirties, and recommenced production of it on the cusp of the fifties, and expected to sell the aeroplanes into a far more sophisticated post-war market. Maybe that's why there were only ten Cri-cri Majors produced - and only two Phryganets. I won't go into the other variants as it may do no good for Lefty's state of health!

    The CFA D.7 Cricri Major F-WEAN

  12. #24462
    Looks like Uli has this one nailed. My reticence, Mike, is the result of many years grappling with French idiosyncracies !

    In this case, my source (attached) barely mentions Salmson other than as engine supplier , whilst the ever-reliable AviaFrance seems blissfully unaware of the CFA !

    Thank you, Uli. Here's something that is a little more and looks a lot more modern than the Cri-cri. And its designation shouldn't vex lefty!

  14. #24464
    Lovely. To think this was nearly 60 years ago - G-ASTX -the one and only Beagle B.242X

    It was brave of them to attempt to compete with the Cessnas and Pipers of the world. Good-looking machine, though.

  15. #24465
    Yes, absolutely right, Mike.

    Lovely, but sad. Wasn't Beagle a perfect example of all that was wrong with the British aircraft industry and its management in the post-war decades?

    But enough of this. Over to Scotland.

    Thank you Mike. Here's a water baby -

    Judging by the 'wedding cake' sternwheeler on the extreme left of the photograph, I presume that your water baby is in the good ol' US of A!

  18. #24468
    Yes indeed, although it ain't the Mississippi !

  19. #24469
    Benoist 14 I would say.

  20. #24470
    Spot-on, Kevin. Historic stuff, this - the first-ever scheduled flights of heavier-than-air craft.

  21. #24471
    Thanks Mike.

    Here is something a little different. Can you decipher the transport to the left in the boneyard photo?

  22. #24472

  23. #24473
    Air Couzinet 10 second version, yes. One of the few without a cross painted on.

  24. #24474
    Looks like a homebuilt. In a museum. Not sure of the designation just what came with the picture.

    I think this is known as the Antonov An-181
