That’s a SWIFT. Swept Wing Inboard Flap Trim

 

Foot launched as a rigid wing hang glider/glider or powered like the one here.

 

Several manufacturers over the years but likely aeriane built.

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

Got it. Just a bit more than half the size of the C 160, and the predecessor of the RAAF's Spartans.

 

You will no doubt know this oldie.

Aero Composites Seahawker is how it was listed in the source of the photo.

 

It was listed in the FAA Registry as a Seahawker (rego now expired). I did not check it's lineage, sorry.

Correct PMcC.

 

Ian, you'd think so. It's hard keeping up with kasper. Not letting the others get much of a chance, but there are a few who manage to get a word in edgewise.

 

The one below is number 23 of 47 since working on the laptop. I'll have to finish off the A's and start on the B's.

I know it's too small to read, but it's the only way I could get it on the one page, however this will give you an idea of the list of manufacturers. This is just the A's.

 

I have not chosen any gliders, weightshift, rotorcraft (with one exception), airliners, common GA or LSA aircraft, and most military aircraft. There are also many manufacturers who may have between 3 and 50 aircraft registered around the world, but have no photos on the database.

OK. The yellow plane is no. 24 of the new collection, which has now reached 75. You have your work cut out for you.
