    Mike, nobody else seems to be biting the balloon, so I'll venture that this is the Bournemouth, the result of Lord Ventry's obsession. What the bus is for, I know not.

  2. #19777
    Indeed it is. £25 worth of secondhand barrage balloon and an old Salmson radial and, hey presto, you've got G-AMJH (an interesting article cconcerning which you'll find at https://www.dorsetlife.co.uk/2016/07...e-bournemouth/). I'll forgive you not being a bus gricer, Mike. At least you didn't assume the bus to be its gondola! Over to the lowlands.

    Thanks Mike. I confess, it was a Google of 'motorised barrage balloon' which revealed the answer !

    Unfortunately I'm heading off tomorrow morning to my favourite sunny isle for a couple of weeks, and there is a heavy workload today, so it'll have to be Open House again, please.

    Keep your fingers crossed, gentlemen, for my Funchal landing ! (tried landing the Airbus there yesterday - I hope the Jet2 pilot does rather better.......)

    Have a safe flight Mike and happy Landing! I'm sure your Funchal touch down can't be worse than my Landing in Wellington with a cross wind…..

    Gentlemen. From a very experienced 727 driver. In a cross wind situation you want a heavy landing. To plant the aircraft and not drift. We just had a NASCAR driver lose his aircraft Cessna Latitude becasuse they bounced a couple of time and said they tried to go around but ended up burning the aircraft out off the end of the runway. No life loss.

    hi giruXX
    One of the many designs of Romanian Radu Manicatide. This is the IAR-821 model (Ichenko AI-14 radial engine) built by ICRMA (Intreprinderea de Constructii si Reparatii Materiale Aeronautice) which was later renamed as IRMA (Intreprinderea de Reparatii Materiale Aeronautice). Later versions (IAR-822, IAR-826) had a Lycoming O-540.

    PS another similar experience I had in St.Petersburg (I was going to write Leningrad) with Aeroflot

    This one is relatively new (first fight was made couple of days ago!), although she has been under development for quite some years. Intended as motorglider and
    glider tug. The organisation behind the project is/was also responsible for other powered aircraft.

    hi giruXX
    We must have missed each other.
    Got the pic from the site of the organisation that developed/built/flew this bird of prey

  13. #19788
    This is D-KTOW, the Akaflieg Stutgart fs35 Harpyie. (fs35 for Fachgruppe Stuttgart 35). Main object was to have a glider tug with a high climb rate that also could descent fast.
    First flight was 13 August 2019 and engine is a 155hp Continental CD-155 diesel.
    Here is a better pic.

    Unless I am wrong, I think giruXX knew the answer, so please go head with the next challenge

    It was, I understand, a combination of the downdraft being greater than the forward airspeed and Mr Dixon stretching his neck upward to jam his hat against the overhead structural member.

    Mike has been out in the vineyard again today...

  25. #19800
    The mystery is from a small but known company. They built a variety of biplanes and monoplanes from the early 1920's to the early 1930's.

    This particular one was unsuccessful.
