    Well, it is a Kinner Airster circa 1921. The pilot is either Neta Snook or Amelia Earhart? (hard to tell at that distance).

  4. #15354
    It is Amelia

    Here is the full picture, enjoy a fresh cold beer

    Thanks Robert.

    Let's jump ahead in time a little bit.

  6. #15356
    North American NA-18, methinks

  7. #15357
    Boom! It is the -18. A mug of suds for gX.(You fellas across the pond favor the dark ale I think?)

  8. #15358
    I favor India Pale Ale (IPA)

    My next offer is a wee twin

    The wee twin is the Monocoupe Monocoach Zenith ( there's a mouthful)..

    Incidentally, India Pale Ale , certainly in Scotland, is darker in colour than most other beers !

  10. #15360
    [NX15433] modified into 4pClwM Zenith (with two 90hp Lambert R-266) and I agree on both topics !

    How about this one ? - looks like the unfortunate result of a liaison between a Stork and a Cub !

    Hi Mike
    The Merckle Kiebitz by Herman Winter. D-EJUG was built by members of the Institut für Flugzeugbau und Leichtbau an der Technischen Hochschule Carolo-Wilhelma in Braunschweig, under a contract of Merckle Flugzeugwerke KG. Known as Model 501 Kiebitz, the aircraft was also referred to as the LF-2 (LangsamFlugzeug 2 or slow flying aircraft no.2)
    Btw the LF-1 was the Zaunkönig, not unknown in the UK.

    Chapter and verse, as ever, from Walter !

  14. #15364
    Thank you Mike
    Wonder why the pilot had not selected a matching shirt.

    Some help: The aircraft was photographed over USA, but is not an indigenous design
    Not a one-off, but maybe 4 or 5 built in total.

  16. #15366
    This one seems quite a bit different from its original plans ...

  17. #15367
    Hi fabulousfour
    The first one (a 2-seater) was indeed quite different. However, at least 2 of the other machines (4-seaters) were very similar to the suspect.

  18. #15368
    Hint? Ask Julie Andrews.

  19. #15369
    Last clues: It seems I was far too pessimistic. Maybe at least 9 were actually built and flown and this does not include a Belgian example of which I am not certain it was ever completed. A Canadian example alledgedly flew in 1985, but never saw a picture of that one. The country of birth delivered at least 6 (8?) examples.

  20. #15370
    A rather durable mystery

  21. #15371
    The subjected aircraft is the American member of the Duruble RD-03 Edelweiss family (N3KS). The Edelweiss was a design of René Duruble of France and already flew (in RD-02 form) in 1962. This aircraft (F-WKVF/F-PKVF) is now in the collection of the Musée Régional de l`Air at Angers,
    Google/Yahoo "Duruble RD-03 Edelweiss" and you will find many nice pics and info on this all-metal design.

    I suggest fabulousfour continues as he clearly knew the answer!

  22. #15372
    Thanks, wout!

    Could you please explain the hint with Julie Andrews, I didn't unterstand that.

    This one shouldn't be too difficult.

    Sorry, this kite has a real "name" for its designation and not some odd kind of abbreviation
