    Not a motor glider or a homebuilt. Registered but crashed after a couple of test flights as the engine was new and unreliable.

    Noted air racer and test pilot Tony LeVier nearly lost his life testing this machine.

    I recalled the outline of the Shelton Crusader from a modeling site where a scratchbuilt model of the type was shown.

    Admire all the other odd shapes the same modeler created...

    And the next challenge!

    A one-off from the beginning of the Thirties.
    The name of the designer is usually connected to a huge bomber of the
    Twenties, which also was a one-off.

    O it's still going strong! Time for a hint: a British built Dutch design.

    Nope, but you're getting close! The pilot reportedly did shout "AW FK!" when he crashed!

    That's right! Apparently Koolhaven's triplane had such poor flying characteristics, it was forbidden to fly with it. Clearly someone tried anyway!

    Fascinating stuff. I am perplexed by the A.W. designations and maybe an expert out there can help. The same aircraft is called F.K.12 by J M Bruce, but the machine in the post differs from any I have seen before by apparently having two paired sets of mainwheels in tandem. Is this correct ?

    See this website for Koolhoven's AW-Designs (and all the others too).

    http://www.koolhoven.com/history/airplanes/aw/

    The F.K.12 was a different plane.

    True, it's also the only pic I've seen of this machine with tandem landing gear arrangement. But being a prototype, anything is possible I suppose!

    Thank you, Skyraider3D. Here's a natty little motorglider that looks like something that it is not. It is known by a number of different names. Any of them will do!

    No ideas, gentlemen? I was inclined to give you a clue, but then someone shouted: 'don't tell him, Pike'. So I won't!
