Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    I wondered about it too Mike. A feathered flyer! There are some Russian birds with paint like that but the location does not make sense.

  2. #23852
    Could that feathered bird be a Monospar?

    Here are two pictures from a similar angle (the first one is mirrored). The Danish Monospar seems to lack the small strut from the rudder to the elevator.

    Like Kevin, I have a recollection of a rather oddball Russian flying machine having been painted in similar fashion, but I'm afraid that I can recollect no more than that and utilising that slight recollection has produced nothing on the subject by way of online searching!

    I think you have the Kalinin K-12 in mind ......

    I think that you're right, Jim, but evidently that's not the 'bird' which was next to the Farman at Hendon in the late thirties.

  6. #23856
    No, I think Robert has hit the nail on the head ! Look at the horizontal tail surface that can be seen in both photos - the central hinge, and trim tab, are unique to the Monospar.
    As for the paint job, I have searched to no avail !

    So let's go on with this bird, no need to look at aerofiles.

    Is it the Gazuit-Valladeau GV.1031 Gazelle?

  9. #23859
    Indeed, Mike, it is the Gazuit-Valladeau.

    Enjoy your beer or cider, whatever you prefer.

  10. #23860
    Thank you, Robert, but at this time of the day I think that I'll stick to coffee!

    Now here's something that served the same purpose as the Gazelle but a couple of decades earlier.


  11. #23861
    From a famous manufacturer. There was a small production run for this model, which spawned something much better known and extensively produced.

  13. #23863
    Indeed it is. The prototype M.28, photographed in 1941. Well done, Jim, and over to you again.

  14. #23864
    Thanks ! On with a Bipe ( obviously there were more than one ! )

    A flock of Ansaldo A.300's.

  16. #23866
    Indeed they are ( in Polish Service ) - over to you .....

  17. #23867
    Thanks Jim.

    Not Polish...

    Methinks this is the Texas-Temple Sportsman.

  19. #23869
    Very good Robert. I took the photo myself several years ago. There is one survivor hanging in a Dallas museum.

  20. #23870
    Thanks, Kevin, it was a bit of luck that I found the Sportsman. Interesting that of only three built aircraft one still survives.
    On with a flying elephant

  22. #23872
    Surely it's not a Dumbo Jet ..... ?
