Bet that open cockpit was comfy in the winter.....

I'm betting less than 20 seconds to ID this one....

I'll try to get a couple this weekend. I'll have to obscure the tail number on the planes that have the customers registration on them.

[quote=Klay]There are a few unidentified ones outstanding.

This is a real plane. I bet a65l will be able to figure it out:




This one is for the nice picture:




Then there's this one:

Max Holste HM 1521C Broussard.
New to me. Apparently extremely good in Algeria.
That particular aircraft is in the States:

Yeah, I'm glad someone put that one to bed. I was getting seriously pissed trying to find it yesterday.


If Master Klay was looking for it, how would he search? I found a lot of cool shit, but nothing even remotely resembling that whackjob plane.

No wonder it crashed. Nothing that ugly is supposed to fly.

I'm not sure if I would have been able to find that one. I would have started by googling "1930s twin-pontoon radial engine seaplane." Then it's a matter of following a hunch.

I wasn't able to get this one, but a65l got it pretty fast. I think he's the best at this game. How'd you do it, a65l?

That's pretty much the lines I was searching along. I actually started with seaplane, then switched to floatplane as it seemed most of the "seaplanes" were boat-hull type.

Didn't even get a sniff of it. Tough one.

Switching to "twin-pontoon" is another way to get away from seaplane hull.
