    It is the French S.N.C.A.S.E. SE-200 of 1942.

    Yes, al

    It is indeed the Sud-Est SE200 that was destroyed during the second world war. Close, but no cigar, Barnstormer, I had thought of it but decided it would be too easy. Al, you have control.

    Unless it's a double bluff and is actually one of de Havillands.

    Certainly not from Hatfield or Stag Lane come to that, so Breda seems pretty likely.........

    One minute flat, has to be a record of some kind. Right I'm having upload problems, so if anyone wants to post one with the understanding that I'll be doing one when I've sorted the problems out, go ahead.

    Ok, I'll post one in between then while we wait for FleetShadower to sort his upload problem.

    Let's see how it goes, try this one:

    No idea on that one, rlucas

    First thought was some Grumman, but no joy there. Oh yes, I have sorted my IT gremlins, and can post a new "wot plane" when this one's been sorted.

    FleetShadower, nope Grumman is not in the right direction, although with that landing gear I can see why you thought why...

    Wrong country as well!

    well its a pretty obscure aircraft !, after trawling through every combination of words 'on thinternet' for a photo and drawn a blank , how about another clue ? Mr Lucas ..

    Hey groundhugger!

    Yes a very obscure aircraft it is yes! There are very, very few places you can find info on this one. Even for a interear aircraft!

    This one can be found in the Flight archives! Somewhere between 1930 and 1935. It was a long range aircraft intended for record flights. Propelled by a Pratt and Whitney Wasp. designed by a certain mr. Watter

    I'll give it one more day, then I'll give the thread to FleetShadower again. This one might be a bit much...

    Hi Roel!

    After you provided us with all information needed to find this one in Flightglobal, we can finally call it MWT-1. Some sources call it a TNCA MWT-1.

    While intensely searching the net for this one I found another picture of the type (besides a lot of other obscure stuff) as seen below without any reference to the type shown, given my nonexistent capabilities in the Spanish language.

    I Know it is not probably that, but it reminds of something latter: canadair (perhaps its the fin shape).
    Is it from North America at least?

    It is indeed North American (not the company and not Canada). The two famous names are the builders and the designer (who was also responsible for a production amphibian, albeit by a new and smaller manufacturer).
    This one first flew in 1944.

    Goodyear Duck. The designer Thruston/Thurston? then designed the Teal.

    I would say more than close enough.
    The designer is indeed Mr. David Thurston who than continued with the Colonial C-1 Skimmer which became the Lake La-4 and the rest is history.
    Grumman is also correct, but the aircraft is the G-65 Tadpole.
    Of course Mr. Thurston also designed the Teal.

    Fleet Shadower is at the helm !
