It's the Venture. Taking a short break if anyone wants to fill in. Been searching and downloading for  the Showcase, and run out of suitable photos that will test you.

What aircraft is this? A different perspective. Hint - I took this photo last week.

OK. Found and de-identified another 20. Here's the first:

Absolutely correct Peter.

 

This next one is interesting. There are nearly 150 listed on airport-data.com, but no photos.Wikipedia had a page for it, but no photo. Google images only found one photo and this is it.

Gee Red ... you’ve de-identified it a bit much when you delete the fuselage altogether 🤣

Given you can see the sky through it, it has to be a Skye Trek Sky Seeer, er Skyseeker, MK 111.

Go to the head of the class, Graeme. I thought it would take a little longer than that. Expected Nev or someone to ask "Where is the rest of it?", kasper came near enough. Actually, Space, it's Canadian. That's what you call a 'minimum aircraft'.

 

OK, here's the next one.

Well it depends who built it but it’s likely to be the rainbow aircraft manufactured Cheetah... a sort of copy/development of the original sky ranger. 

 

Rainbow  closed and the design went through it’s growth and add weight phase and emerged as a much bigger aircraft. 

 

The Cheetah design was re-engineered and approved in the UK as the Medway SLA series and has full CAA BCARS certification. 

 

Medway closed down but it’s still available from another manufacturer.

Rose Parrakeet

 

identified by unusual fin shape and the lift strut on the upper wing as opposed to inter plane wires.

That's a pretty aircraft. Looks similar to Jessie Anglins Kitten only with a tube 2 spar wing. There have been many derivatives including pups using identical construction, when you think of it nearly all high wing machines are built along Cub lines.

Why try to improve on perfection? A great thing to muck about in and they can be kept flying virtually forever  Nev

That pretty little plane is a Sky Raider, By SkyRaiderLlc, formerly Flying K (read the story here). The business appears to no longer exist as the SkyRaiderLlc domain name is for sale.

 

How about a gyro for a change.
