    You're right. It seems that our Anthony is getting to be a bit of a regular around here!

      Here is one not related to Anthony Fokker...

        I think this is the only photo that exists of this plane. That's an Anzani radial up front...

          Will post a new one soon if these last clues do not help.

          The company that designed this tourer is more known for unconventional types.

          It participated in a civil aircraft event in the late 1920's but did not place.

            I'm clutching at straws here, but is it a Guerchais Henriot?

            Comment


              Not a Guerchais-Henriot but you are on the right track.

                Looks like "Little Bird" written below the cockpit .... ?

                  That is a good eye. Never noticed something was written there. Not sure about "Little Bird" though.

                    May be a good eye, but I'm no further forward in identifying this!

                      Let's move on.

                      AA had the right country. This is the Delanne Type 11 of 1928.

                      Here is a real quirky number...

                        ...........and just so that I know whether I was barking up the right tree when I hazarded at guess at a Guerchais Henriot, was the "civil aircraft event in the late 1920s" the 1929 Challenge International des Avions de Tourisme based on Paris Orly?

                          It was the Rotterdam Air Meet of June 1929.

                            .........which explains why I did not find it! Thanks, Moze.

                              This is a rather common light plane. The small outboard engines are a one-off mod to increase STOL performance.

                                Is this a modified Aeronca C-2?

                                  Close enough. It's a C-3 but hard to tell from this angle.

                                  Over to you-

                                    There are (at least) two airframes in this picture. One is very easy, the other is rather difficult. Can anyone get both, and maybe say where and when?

                                      The easy one is a Harvard fuselage frame

                                        Is the rather difficult one a Hawker Hind?

                                          The fuselage frame was the difficult one! Not a Harvard.
                                          The easy one is not a Hind.

                                          Neither is a million miles away though!
