Looks like a Piel Emeraude... ish.  

 

But there were so many variations on the original cp-30 it could be one of them so I’ll stick to Claude Piel as the original designer.

I also thought it looked like something else - don't they all. I looked up its design and development and could not find any reference to influence by other designs. That's not to say there isn't a hidden link somewhere. One reference says the designer (not Piel) was influenced by the fighter aircraft in WWII during his youth. I will confirm that it is French.

Doesn’t look like a minicab with that canopy but hey there were multiple variations on the gardan minicab as well.

I'd already discarded thoughts about the Emeraude and Minicab so ran out of ideas but .... let's go with Menestrel HN700.

Oh My God! What on earth were they thinking?

 

Was it made in Ethiopia?

The point of this topic is for you to tell me, planedriver. Someone will know. If not, I'll tell you in a week. The one piece of info I will give you is that 75 were built before production ceased.

You got it. Made in Quebec Canada.

 

The role of this one is obvious.

Did you use image search to locate that? You're right with the rego. And the plane.

A few years ago I took this photo  somewhere close to Kathrine Gorge while on a Northern Territory trip

 

.1147295197_NorthernTerritorytrip117.thumb.jpg.c4de9fb8ada04b50eb0e1361bedbab4a.jpg

 

Each time I come across it, I wonder what type of aircraft it is/was.

 

Any idea's?

Cessna 310 I'd say, based on the small size of it, for a twin, and the shape of the tip tanks.

Seven days are up. The red and bare metal biplane in #1623 is a Pheasant H-10.
