    Should be easy enough, even if you avoid helicopters, or if you have an affinity for certain cheese slicers.

    You got it Chris! Interesting that it was 'ducted thrust for yaw control" long before the MD500 NOTAR

    Interesting to hear JTI is still operating. I thought it was winding down after Nomadic started up. To bad the BDA stop was so short it's a nice place to visit.

    Midget racer, National Air Races, late twenties or early thirties? Unfortunately my guesswork takes me no further!

    Is there a catch?
    Fokker G.IB at RAE

    "Test flights from the factory were made under German supervision, but on 5 May 1941 two Dutch pilots succeeded in evading an escorting German-flown G.I and escaped to England. Their G.IB was taken to the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, for examination, and used subsequently by Phillips and Powis (Miles Aircraft) at Reading for research into wooden construction."

    No, no catch. It is the Fokker G.1b. The RAF markings might have been something of a curve ball for some but, evidently, not for you. The location is Woodley rather than Farnborough. The ball's in your court now.

    Multiple variations designed around a common platform including piston and possible turboprop engines.
    Product of a fertile engineering mind from eastern Europe (but not an EU aircraft) with one very-well known bird to his credit.

    The gentleman above was Hungarian-born Joseph Kovacs - Google may be your friend.

    Too modern for y'all?

    The Brazilian Novaer T-Xc http://www.novaer.ind.br/t-xc/

    Jos. Kovacs was responsible for the Neiva Universal and a long-nosed bird - the Tucano.

    Next? Please take a number...

    Hmmm, there doesn't seem to be much activity here these days.

    Here's a rear view .....


  22. #24497
    The Napier-Heston Racer, perhaps?

  23. #24498
    No, Uli, it's not the Heston Type V but it is another racer that didn't make it to the starting line.

  24. #24499
    Here's a rather fine photograph showing some of those who did qualify for the race in respect of which this aeroplane failed to make it to the starting line.

    Cant help with the aircraft question if it did not appear, but there was one that pulled out of the preliminaries of the 1933 Coupe Deutch de la Meurth air race, Nick Comper entered his Swift G-ABWW that year shown in that photo.
