    The closest I could find is Macchi M17 Idrocorsa but there are several things that do not tally...same applies to some french crafts but again same story.Sorry (ich bin am Ende meines Lateins)
    Cheers

    Thank you Carlo for kicking the ball!
    You are close to the right corner.

    Built for the Schneider Cup in two examples. Both sank before they could compete.

    Closer to you, Carlo, than you think: 440km from Arezzo by car (according to google on today's roads).

    Though my route planner differs a little bit about the distance from Arezzo I think this is the CNT II built in Trieste.

    OK this must be the 1922 Schneider Cup run on Aug.13 in Naples. There were three italian entries: SIAI S51 (I-BAIU) - Macchi M7bis (I-BAFV) - Macchi M17 (I-BAHG). However not one of the three isan exact likeness of the picture you have proposed. BTW the italians didn't win. The British did. Therefore "où est-il le mystère?"
    Cheers
    Carlo

    Are you sure Robert ? I've never heard of a CNT II (you meant probably CANT II) or seen a picture of it…
    Cheers

    Robert is right: https://web.archive.org/web/20150225...o&goto_id=4387

    Also designated Guidoni D.G.A.3 in 1924

    Fascinating - sadly it doesn't sound as though they ever flew - first priority of a flying boat is that it should float !

    The Cant thread at Secret Projects is equally fascinating - does anyone know who Apophenia is or was ?

    Thanks Uli and R obert for discovering this craft which up to this morning was absolutely unknown to me (and I believe to other members of our beautiful forum)!
    Cheers

    An absolutely fascinating page of secretprojects Mike….unfortunately so little is known of italian prewar and postwar aircrafts! As far as I know a really Comprehensive digest isn't yet available (and probably never will be)
    Cheers

    I know -having searched in bookshops in Italy, it seems there is very little in print.

    Oh for a comprehensive study of Italian aircraft (preferably of the 20th century ) - Carlo, come on, it's never too late !

    Now, this is really weird.
    I learned this morning that we had the CNT II before, almost exactly two years ago on 31. August 2017. And it was me who solved that mystery then.
    Forgot about that completely
    Must be first signs of Alzheimer's disease.

    Here is something more modern, I don't think we had this one before.

    Hi fabulousfour
    The first of 2 Toyo TT-10s from Japan?

  18. #19768
    Don't know whether it's the first or the second one but it is definitely the Toyo TT-10.

    Ober to you, Walter

  19. #19769
    On second thoughts, she is no.1 (sliding canopy and JA3026). No.2 (JA3049) had upwards hinging canopy panels.
    My next challenge will follow asap.

    What was this before someone decided one engine was enough. Bonus for the new name.

    No, I didn't cheat and use an image search just the long, convoluted permutations of terms and phrases we all love so much. Obvious, tho' how someone else found it in the first place BTW, the "Atlas Angel" that is referred to is a turbine conversion of an AL.60 (LASA 60 / Atlas C4M Kudu)

    and it will have to be OH as I have used up all my "free" time today and must get back to the workbench.

    In the absence of any other offerings, here's a bit of an oddball .....

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