I thought it was the Fairchild at first but could not find one with the fin fillet. I'm going with the North American XSN2J-1.
Correct. One of the 2 prototypes of the XSN2J-1
Larry was on the right track.
I understand the XSN2-J-1 was competing with the Fairchild XNQ-1 (YT-31 when evaluated by the USAF) for a possible USN order. Always wondered why a 295hp machine (XNQ-1) was competing with a 1,100hp (XSN2J-1) aircraft.
Kevin, surprise us!
Thanks for the beer. Need it for another (101F) hot day a brewing.
Here is an oddball torpedo bomber (to me anyways)...
Hmmm, looks like a Martin design with those lower wing braces.
Not a Martin effort.
(Got up to 106F today)
As far as I know, there were very few land versions and those were exported. From a well known company.
Here is where the plot thickens. This biplane was powered by a Armstrong Siddeley Leopard radial.
For those keeping score, 110F today. About to lose my mind...
Closest I can get is a torpedo version of the Bristol 109 long range biplane.
Without the motor information I was toiling - it is a Heinkel He 16 of the Flygvapnet.
If you have three-quarters of an hour to spare, there is a lovely old video of Swedish Air Force history here...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx9dKCmJ-wE
I have it as a Heinkel HD.16L. Good show Mike, have at it.
Big man meets wee aeroplane.......
From a factory better known for producing a long line of fighters.........
That Sir, looks very much like a Gloster Gannet.
Yes, indeed it is..... to cool the fevered Texan brow.
