    I had to look this one up. There were FOUR 260 hp. Mercedes engines inside the fuselage. Top Speed was 81 mph. Climb to 9600 feet took 2 hours. And Linke-Hofmann's main business was building steam locomotives! One of their locomotive designers obviously designed this monstrosity.........:rofl

    I don't know what the aircraft is, but the two radiators lead me to believe that the engine is a water cooled Salmson radial.

    To be honest, I couldn't tell you. Not even sure what country it's from, although I believe it is US.

    The only reference I can find on the web;
    Manufacturer: Woerner
    Official Nickname: The Egg
    Notes: "1923/1924, also called ""The Pickle"""

    Most of these aircraft are repeats, of course.
