Seventy plus years of being an aeroplane nut helps! Memory goes back to seeing the Bristol Brabazon fly over Edinburgh. Add to that a bookshelf full of reference books and you have your answer!

And for those of us not into 70 years of being a nut ... 40 years + reference library + a job years while at Uni watching hundreds of hours of film and building an index to the archive - getting paid

Yes, Googles algorithms find virtually everything that has ever been posted for public display. And I've spent 20 yrs fine-tuning my internet searching abilities.   As a little thread drift

Derekliston, I owe you an apology, kinda. No, the aircraft is not a BN-3 Nymph, but it is derived from the Nymph. The designer, Desmond Norman worked for Britten-Norman, and when the company failed, he took the design to a company he started, NDN Aircraft. NDN planned to build and sell the Nymph with a lengthened cabin as the NAC-1 Freelance. The Nymph was reworked as the prototype Freelance and first flew in that configuration on 29 September 1984. In 1985 NDN Aircraft was renamed the Norman Aircraft Company (NAC) and components and fuselage sections for six aircraft were built. Following the failure of the company to win a military order with the NDN Firecracker military trainer the company was closed down.

 

So, we move on. Here's an unusual looking one,  which I am sure will be guessed quickly.

Might be a red WACO F series.  It’s hard to pin them all down because some have fabric on the main leg/drag link triangle and others don’t and some have lumpy cowls others smooth - or no cowls just to really piss off spotters.

 

but the most popular and my guess is a WACO UPF7

Looks like a Cessna t37 ... but I might just be a bit of a reporter and everything looks like a Cessna.

Hard to tell but it probably has a rudder on the rear of the fuselage below the v tail.  Wing tips are obvious change as the tip wheels are no there.  And from the angle you can’t tell if it’s had an engine change from the original.
