Is that the Allied A-2 Walter?
Yes it is! After the restoration and fitting of the new engine.
Understand your country is trying to set new records where temperatures are concerned. I feel sorry for you and maybe this helps
I was out of town in Boston for a few days and had a short reprieve from the blast furnace. Thanks for the cold ones though.
Here is a nifty little twin that I finally found a clear photo of...
Looks very American - what does that logo say ? something 'Pilots' ??
Unknown on the logo but she is indeed an American girl. From the west coast somewheres...
Note: It is listed at Aerofiles (no photo), but the year is wrong. Small outfit.
This one is a younger distant cousin to several Barnes Wallis designs...
Generous to a fault, Kevin. Your clue eventually revealed the Greenwood-Yates Bicraft. The original Oregon basket-case. Where do you find them ?????
(and I think the logo might be 'Oregon Pilots' )
Nice pic Mike. Aerofiles has her flying in 1935 but more research points to 1939 and spilling over into 1940.
I lifted the photo from a Oregon aircraft site. Fire away-
Here's another prewar machine that deserved more recognition..
Mosscraft? If it is I dont know which one though off the top of my head at the moment.
 Just done a quick google - its probably the only MA2 G-AFMS.
You get the beer,, Keith, although you are not quite right.
This is the Mosscraft MA.1 in its original cabin form,G-AEST, before it was converted to a tandem open-seater.
Postwar, it became a single-seat racer, and sadly crashed in the King's Cup, killing Mr Moss. Over to you.
Thanks - that one (beer) is needed as temperatures high for me here & doing some much needed exterior painting (mornings only though!!!)
As for the MA1 - googling them, there is a photo taken at Pendford of them both but as you say the MA1 is an open tandem version. I think I was there at that time (air race meeting) & remember -AEST crashing at one of the pylons - apparently due to a high speed stall. A Spit also wrecked the Hendy Heck there that year too - I think!
Now try this one - its bound to be easy for you!
Sorry its a bit small though!
No ideas yet?
Its a one off - by an engine manufacturer.........that should narrow it down!
It did, Keith. It's the ABC Robin.
Well Done - a Highland Park it is!! I found a couple of other pictures of it on the web. My father would probably have known it as it was at Brooklands where he worked.
Over to you.
