    Interesting looking propellor blades. Presumably they will assist someone in its identification.

          suggest to restart with this light twin amphibious flying boat.

              Ooh, we've had that one before. I think that I might even have posted it, having found the image in an ancient A-B German civil register volume. Am I right in thinking that it exists today in a Danish museum? But I do acknowledge that the further this thread progresses, the more difficult it becomes to avoid the risk of repetition - something not helped by the 'short term' nature of the search facility that now exists on this forum.

                a very good day Thomas!

                The CaJo-59 it is
                Your turn please

                A.A. wait for the next one, when it is my turn.

                  @Avion ancien: If the CaJo 59 does indeed exist, I would be very pleased to learn where. Based on the current edition of Ogden's "Aviation Museums and Collections of Mainland Europe" I can't find it among the exhibits of any Danish museum.

                    On 31 July 2010, in the course of the predecessor to this thread, wout told us that:

                    "The CJ-59 (CaJo-59) of 1967 by Carl Johansen. Now in the collection of the Dansk Veteransflysamlung Museum (Danish Vintage Aircraft Collection)".

                      Good morning!

                      The current "Wot Plane" is a homebuilt - and as far as I know a one-off. Its construction originates in Germany.

                        It looks as if it was built for a short pilot, then a taller one wanted to fly so they had to increase the height of the canopy.
                        I have no idea.

                          Good morning!

                          Does it help to add that the construction is not wood or mixed construction but GRP/composite? The plane got a prize for "most progressive" (or is it "most advanced") construction by the OUV (Oskar-Ursinus-Vereinigung, the German equivalent of the PFA) at some stage.

                          Initially the single-seater was flown with an open cockpit, i.e. just a windshield.

                            Good morning!

                            Since there has been no successful attempt on identifying the current "Wot Plane", I'll better give you the solution (not much time to "surf" over the Christmas days...):

                            The plane is a Klinke K-1 and is has the registration D-EGKW. My photo is ca. from the year 2000 when I attended the annual OUV Fly-in in Koblenz.

                            Open House and Merry Christmas to all of you!

                            Thomas

                            P.S. Another more recent picture (September 2008) can be found here: http://www.flugzeugforum.de/forum/sh...ghlight=D-EGKW

                              They are not reindeer, but this is as Christmasy as I could find.

                                Canadian Fairchild 71, I believe.

                                Merry Christmas, All!

                                ( I HAD "Super" 71... but I was mistook, eh?)
                                :-)


                                SCRATCH that! It's a Super Universal... jeez dunno my own aviation heritage.

                                  It does look like it - but the identification I have is of a different machine, and I don't know of any relation to Canada.

                                    Ho ho ho!

                                    Errr, are we talking about the aeroplane or the horses?

                                      I think the aeroplane. But horse lovers are welcome to join in.

                                        Oh, it's in Canada... I've seen the pic before , somewhere... and it's definitely a "Charlie Fox" registration, beneath the wing.
