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

Again more than a week with no response. Are you stumped, or bored with this game?

B8CA6D68-1269-4A47-A73E-A089AA23CA11.jpeg.43d7b82eba89cf51072eef563aa9d195.jpeg Here is one from me for any of you to identify. Photo not terribly clear, blown up from a phone photo taken from the fence at Mareeba airport. I’ll even give you the registration, N2811W. Google says Boeing 727 which it plainly (planely!) isn’t. I don’t have a clue!

Next one :-

It's the precursor to the Cessna 400, made by Colombia Aircraft Listed as the Colombia LC41.[ATTACH=full]61725[/ATTACH]

I should know this one, a mate of mine, Paul Longthorp owned either it or a sister ship when I lived in England 35 yrs ago, but my brain has decided to have a senior moment!

Chrislea Super Ace G-AKVF was Paul’s one! That’s better.

I actually had a fly in it back then. Had one of the strangest control set-ups I have ever seen. I think there is also one in the HARS museum.
