    I can't remember where I saw that insignia before. That's the key to this one.

    Looks like the Boeing "bug" insignia, but I can't find a pic that shows that aircraft. It has a Curtiss-Reed metal prop, though.

    This particular aircraft did not ride the rails. :rofl

    Although I recall reading that the narrow undercarriage was an issue....

    Is that even an aeroplane? How about a clue...a clue based on aeronautical concepts and not word games.

    I'm thinking the logo's mirrored FF stands for Ferro Flyer or something similar... didn't we have a propeller driven Italian train here a while ago?

    Not Italian but is European, 1920's.

    You might be onto something with the FF for the manufacturer, but not the name.
