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

In addition to the pusher three axis I posted try this one

I know nothing about this class of aircraft, and a search of images of ultralights has not located anything like it, so I'm happy to leave it up to others. I also know nothing about trikes, PPC's, gyros, gliders, and for that matter, bikes and boats either.

Further to previous post, I've never ridden on a motorbike, even as pillion, and my boat experience is limited to Spirit of Tassie, Magnetic Is. ferry and Manly Ferry/hydrofoil. I've lived a sheltered life.

Looks like an early Kolb?

Nope. :-). This one and the one I posted earlier will hopefully keep you all stumped for a while.

I live to bamboozle.

 

Hints. The two seater in the first unidentified of mine is a factory built from France. Great climb ability - I raced one from a small field in Loire valley - his 912 vs my 912 in a WS trike - he kept up with me and not many three axis can.

Tin boxA design by mr Heinz

A copy of a design by mr Heinz

 

A development of s design by me Heinz

 

Savannah

 

A number like 701

 

Or it might be the Land given it looks like it has a fixed cuff on the leading edge

 

And as most are built as kits or from plans let’s call it a seriously boxy short takeoff and land performance tin box with railway carriage undercart to deal with pilot error on arrival.

 

=;-P

Much more like the Savannah than the 701 and by the way, I like my 701!!!

Wow. This thread slipped to page 5 of the What's New 14 Days. I think it's about time you gave us some answers, Kasper.

 

In the meantime, this one is not part of the quiz, I'll give you the answer. It is a rare Super V Bonanza with two 180hp Lycomings, not the Twin Bonanza (T-Bone). This photo came up on the Vintage Bonanzas Facebook page.

Twin with a vee tail. Can't see how that would optimise yaw control for assymetric flight. I didn't like the Vee tail anyhow. They seemed get a yawing wobble up with a bit of gusting wind. It was dropped after a while.. Beech are well built planes structurally. Not cheap though as one would expect.. I would imagine they have a big following. Nev

They are an acquired taste. Aficionados love them. Some owners post 4 or 5 photos of their pride and joy a week.

1083 is The Moto Du CielMight need a clue on the other

Yes! A French Humbert moto du ciel.

The hints for the other one is it’s Italian, it went into production BUT this is the prototype and it’s fabulously different from the production ones ... can’t make it too easy now :-P

Ok. The unidentifiable ultralight - the ultimate post for this thread :-) - is of Italian manufacture.

 

I’ll post the answer in a week if not found by then.

Only thing close is the Bagalini, but I cant find a photo. And it isnt very close. Wikipedia says:

 

The aircraft features a strut-braced parasol wing, a single-seat open cockpit without a windshield, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in pusher configuration. The Bagalini's fuselage is made from wood and metal, while the wings are a wooden frame covered in doped aircraft fabric. The rear fuselage consists of two tubes, one above and one below the pusher engine.

Well Wikipedia doesn’t know everything ... but you do - yes it’s the Bagalini.

 

If you want to see it go to YouTube and watch them.
