        the Island Aircraft X-191 Spectra of 1969 (we are getting less young!!)
        This prototype (N9168) was really an boat, no wheels.

              in the middle.

              I think a Saab Safir on the left and possibly a fournier RF4 on the right.

              Not sure what the Clou is apart from the glaringly obvious one.

              FWIW the Comper Swift was photographed a few years ago at Old Warden.

                All,

                Historically, parts of aircraft have been included as well as complete aircraft. If you dont want to identify an aircraft based on a part of it, then wait until the next complete one comes up.

                I have removed the latest squabble.

                  Hi L4x2
                  The BA-14 (Bjoern Andreasson 14) it is and the Safir hinted at Sweden.

                  Your turn, please!

                      That's a lovely ASW22 from Schleicher. In fact it's the longer span version, the BL. Watch those wings bend! Looks like it's dumping water ballast, or perhaps the pilot has been flying too long.

                        Ah but it isn't

                        Along the right lines though.

                          It's not? Did you see that I added "BL" as an edit?

                            Indeed I did.

                            I should add that it is, I agree, lovely, it's just not an ASW22 BL.

                              Is it Ventus 2 ?

                                  Well then someone had better tell the FAA as they have N600DB registered as a Schleicher ASW-22BL!

                                    I'm sure they do, but, as stated, this isn't an ASW-22 BL (although it might have been once)

                                    Incidentally, where do you get N600DB from?

                                      That's what appears on the rudder of the sailplane whose picture you've posted, L4x2!

                                          Not when the FAA have it registered until 31 December 2013 on a certificate of airworthiness that says it is a Schleicher ASW-22BL! If it's not that, one has to assume that Mr Dick Butler of Manchester, Tennessee has made some pretty fundamental changes to his sailplane, such as to justify its description as a different make and/or model, without troubling the FAA about this!

                                          p.s. this is getting wierd - the picture has changed, the registration has disappeared, the sailplane has changed direction and there's no indication that L4x2 has edited his or her original post!
