    Is it the photograph or does it have a lack of ailerons? If so, does it have an all moving upper wing? As to its frontal profile, it looks to have the same nasal charm as the Angus Aquila!

    That was my first impression too, Mike. The photo also appears to show a curious lack of horizontal tail surfaces on the port side !

  7. #20482
    ..... and a rudder with so little surface area that one wonders how, if the aeroplane lacked ailerons, the pilot managed to turn at all in flight.

    Nice one, Chris - pretty obscure - no wonder we didn't get it, Mike. Your question answered, though - wing-warping.

    After much digging, found this page -

    In the meantime, something more recent - and to save time, it is not American....

    That looks very much like the Max Plan Busard, Mike.

  11. #20486
    Actually it is the much later (1975) derivative, built by Robert Lefebvre, but I think they are essentially the same. Over to you, Robert -

  12. #20487
    Thanks, Mike!

    On with this low-winged two-seater.

    Not from Great Britain, Mike.

    Hi fabulousfour
    The sole IAR-811 by URMV-3 (later named IAR-Intreprederea Aeronautică Română.

  16. #20491
    It is the IAR-811.

    Over to you, Walter.

  17. #20492
    Somewhat unusual. Still call if a biplane?

    This is the Bijou by Roger Petersen, Minnesota. Engine is a 40hp Rockwell/JLO two-stroke. Aircraft intended to explore the overall configuration. Wingspan was 8.75ft.
    Completed around 1973.

    Open House, please

  19. #20494
    The strange thing about the Petersen Bijou is that it looks familiar somehow, but even now knowing the type I couldn't find anything about it in the www

    How about this beauty?

    Paulic XT3-B Robert.


    I got as far as the Jeep-O-Plane with the boxed wing pusher design...

    It is the Paulic, Kevin.

    Over to Texas, please.

  22. #20497
    Thanks Robert.

    Something a bit larger.


  23. #20498
    From a small but not obscure company. They built several designs, all for the military.

  24. #20499
    Could this be the Sturtevant S-4 as a landplane, Kevin?

  25. #20500
    It is! The last effort from the company.

    Over to Robert.🍺
