    Absolutely correct, Mike!
    A rather untypical design from the Bellanca factory.

    Over to Scotland.

    ....from Western Europe.

    An SPCA .....

  5. #18130
    SPCA ? Isn't that an animal charity ??

  6. #18131
    Morning all - one final clue - while this may not be an SPCA job, its makers are also known by initials. In Roman letters.....

  7. #18132
    OK, that's enough. It's the C.N.A. Eta, from the 1930's. Carlo, where art thou ?? OH, please.

    Hello Mike!
    I must confess that my thoughts were a bit distracted over the last few days because I made a short trip to Rome to enjoy my granddaughter who just graduated in nursing sciences with an excellent record of a beautiful 110 "cum laude"

    (the best of her course ) but I promise that I shall be more diligent in the near future if..if...
    Cheers

    Light sport reportedly only built in 2 examples (I have been told). Know of 2 registrations.
    As answer two names/designations are accepted. I am very interested to find ourt in what engine is in the subect aircraft.

    It's white (surprise, surprise...), it's plastic, it has an opaque canopy, no wheels, and a prop that seems to be an afterthought, at a weird angle. We await with interest, Walter......

    Hi Mike
    Maybe that is why she is on poles?? (BTW in front of the manufacturer`s factory)
    The same aircraft, albeit with different nose, in more natural surroundings. I left the clue in.
    Offer still stands. Two names/designations acceptable.

    Don't know what your 'clue' is, Walter. That engine installation makes it look very motor-glidery. Can we assume it is European ?

  13. #18138
    Hi Mike
    Sorry, not European. The clue about her birthplace is the one-of low wing taildragger parked behind.
    Wingspan some 35ft and I understand she was advertised as a JAR/VLA at the time.

  14. #18139
    Think Australia!

  15. #18140
    That clue was worth gold!

    It is the Buchanan BAC-204 Mosquito alias Ozzie Mozzie currently registered as VH-MOS and VH-OZE before.

  16. #18141
    Hi fabulousfour
    That is the one! Understand the project started as the CADAM (Composite Aircraft Design And Manufacture) Mosquito. The aircraft in both pictures I submitted is VH-OZI and on both photos the aircraft carries markings/advertising as the CADAM Mosquito. It seems that Buchanan Aircraft Corporation goty involved and that a second aircraft was then built as VH-OZE (BAC-204, Ozzie Mozzie) with a much recontoured and longer nose (Rotax 912 engine).
    I still did not find details on what engine was in VH-OZI with the short nose. Anyone???
    Here is the original photo of VH-OZI on the poles, in front of the Buchanan Aircraft Corporation plant, but still marked as the CADAM Mosquito. .

    Your turn please!

    I wonder, whether the designer of the original Mosquito had a bad day when he designed the nose of that plane...

    Back to something older again, sorry for the grainy picture.

    This reminds me of a Caproni Ca97c Monomotore.....except for the wingtips!
    Cheers

    Carlo, you are in the right track, but it is not the Ca.97.

    Only one or two of this plane were built, depending on the source.

  20. #18145
    Thanks to our Tuscan friend, I found the Ca.105. Robert, please let Carlo proceed with the next one !

    Thanks Mike!
    I also looked into the Ca105 (only two of them were built I-ABCE and I-FOCO) however the pic in my possession shows a rather different wing but the large dorsal fin was a giveaway and I didn't pay attention to that detail!
    I will submit shortly a new mystery….
    Cheers
    Carlo

  22. #18147
    Oh, heavens. No SPCA obscurities yet, then!

  23. #18148
    Good teamwork, it is indeed the Ca.105

    So a pint for Mike and half a pint for Carlo for putting Mike on the right track.

    If he likes, over to Carlo.

    No takers yet? Maybe it will help to know that the man at the controls is Prince Cantacuzino (from Romania)…
    Cheers
