    The XB-46 is correct. It is a very nice plane to look at.

    Not sure I'd like to see the takeoff performance at weight of the -46 from KSAN...

    OK, let's move to a biplane _ Attachment 63983

    Good afternoon Sir
    this looks very much like the Crouch-Bolas "Dragonfly" of 1934 (is it by any chance X13262?)

    Another nice old bipe' for us to ponder.....

    A Chelsea girl, this one. The Wells Reo.

  10. #6835
    Fellows, I am 101% sure about the Reo, and I have to leave for an extended weekend in a foreign country (England) so if John will excuse me, I will post a nice easy one to keep things rolling along.

    Please continue when you get it. This is a scene from an aircraft carrier. Lots of clues, but can you name the ungainly machine at the front ?

    An extra nip of single malt if you can also name the carrier !

    A Levy-Biche LB.2 aboard the Bearn methinks.

    Moving on per Lefty's request with an airliner...

    Good evening gentlemen
    This must be the Lascurain y Osio Model 4 "Aura" (XB-ZEU) of 1957....as far as i remember she ended up tragically.
    Cheers

    Congratulations Moses, it wasn't easy!
    For our younger readers (if any) NAVO stands for an ominous Nederlandse Automobiel en Vliegtuig Onderneming,this aircraft being built in 1920 and powered by a Benz engine delivering 220HP.
    I do suspect that only one of such
    machines were built.
    Over to you Sir

    Thanks Baragouin. In researching the N.A.V.6, I found this info on it.

    This is a Latecoere 5 (french of course) of 1924: only one aircraft of this type was built powered by three Lorraine 12Da (370HP each).

    Hi Moses
    not Uncle Sam's but from a neighbouring country.......
    This is a big clue but I feel in a festive mood being May 1st a holiday in Europe!

    Okay, I don't have my copy of Canadian Aircraft handy but I think this is a Can-Car design built in Mexico called the Barrera EP Ares.

  25. #6850
    Putnam's Canadian called it a license built Maple Leaf or "Ares". So I will press on here.

    Light twin for you all-
