It's my birthday today - too busy preparing delicacies for my friends & neighbours this evening - the bubbly is chilling, the sun shines, the barbecue is all set - don't expect to get much sense out of Lefty for the next 24 !
Drinks are on me, fellas !
Oh, by the way
Happy Birthday Oh Great One! A round of Parasols for EVERYONE!!!!! I meant a round of brewsky's....got carried away there.
This one would be the Rogozarski SIM-VIII. At work now without files.....so open house.
Happy Birthday, Mike!
and forgive me for drinking one on this occasion. Well, the heck, maybe more than one, W E W O N !!!....
Back in college they held a cardboard boat contest every year, and this latest submission looks just like one of them with a set of droopy wings glued on.
This one is painfully obscure. It even had small ailerons at the tip of each wing.
Not made from cardboard though...
The gentleman in rear looks a tad oriental, but there ain't a sampan in sight. (probably taken in San Francisco Bay........)
It would appear to defy most of the laws of aerodynamics. ?
Not Asian or from anywhere in the States. From your side of the pond.
You were on the right track. The sponsons were a clue to the country. Not a Dornier but a Nordflug Werk Type F.B.1 from 1923.
Onward with a grainy biplane...
Too hot for a beer ???? That's a new one on me ! I'm definitely of the Ice Cold in Alex persuasion.
(Old Brit war movie, for you chaps)
Have a good 4th - how do you celebrate in the heat,exactly ?
When you get back into the air-conditioned sanctum of your computer room, you can tell us what this one is. A proper biplane, and, oh boy, an ugly one.......Attachment 11923
