Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

  1. #18301
    Are those photos from the same aircraft, Kevin? The gear of the second one (and some more details) looks quite different.

    In the second picture it should be the Staig monoplane from Australia.

    Edit: Mike seems to have noticed it as well, missed his answer when changing the page.

    Valid questions Gents and I wondered myself. It is possible the craft went through a couple of permutations with an engine change and reworked gear. The obvious Flight archive photo might be suspect.

    It is the Staig though so over to Robert.

    Here is the best photo of it's final form which I could not use due to easy googling. BTW- The Monoplane soldiered on until destroyed by a fire in 1941.

    Interesting! The plane must have changed its appearance during its lifetime quite a lot.

    Here is a biplane of about the same vintage.

    Thought it looked Italian - that, Robert,is the Macchi M.70

  5. #18305
    For sure, Mike!

    Think those mansions in the background might have helped a bit.

    Over to Scotland

    Kevin had an interesting head-on shot - here's another - a floater, natürlich.....

    that looks like a damned good mystery

  11. #18311
    I knew someone would get there eventually....want to have a stab at the number, Uli ?

  12. #18312
    then I'll put my coin on no. 8 as that one is not in aerofiles

  13. #18313

    Modern replica of the 1916 White Baby White canard pusher.

  16. #18316
    I couldn't see anything, Kevin. Just a grey rectangle with the words 'Attached Image' which, when clicked on, produced nothing.

    Edit - but now the photo has appeared!

  17. #18317
    Kevin is right although I have 1912 for the year of the original

  18. #18318
    I was going by the date in Aerofiles, whether that is accurate or not.

    Continuing on with a nice tourer.

    Looks rather Klemmisch.

    What about a BFW (Messerschmitt) M31?

  21. #18321
    Not a Klemm or Messerschmitt...

  22. #18322
    Kevin, how did you like that harp concert on the first of advent?

  23. #18323
    How did you know I like harp music?

    Uli seems to have sussed this one out. In the meantime, this was not a one-off as 25 were built in 1931/32.

    Another view.

    Hi Uli!
    I'm pretty good at charades but I can see no connection with the submitted Aircraft and a harp concert on December 2(first advent day)!

  25. #18325
    Last ditch effort, it had a Szekely radial and hailed from the Midwest USA. From a small firm.

    I will be out of pocket until late tomorrow so I hope Uli reveals if no one else has a go.
