        Either as a result of good aeronautical or mathematical knowlege, yes, you've got it, moze. It is the S.F.A.N. IV - the two seat version of the S.F.A.N. II. If you look closely at the undercarriage of the two avionettes, that's where the difference lies - stub wings and wider track - oh, as well as having twice the number of seats! But just in case there's anyone interested, the sole S.F.A.N. IV (latterly F-PFOO) is extant today, in the store of the GPPA at Angers-Marc - take a look at http://www.musee-aviation-angers.fr/?page_id=673. Anyhow, it's your turn again, moze.

        p.s. attached is the complete 1936 article from which I took the pictures.

          Good stuff AA. Keep the French rarities coming!

          In the meantime, here is something not French-

            This 1930's rarity was the last design of several the small company produced. There is little to no mention on the net that I have found...

              I'm afraid that, even with the clue, this one has foxed me. But then, as Moze said, it isn't French!

                  Too obscure to get a firm grip on it I'm afraid and I don't have any decent clues. This is the Bolte LW-4 from 1930. (USA)

                  Open house please-

                    Ah well, no-one else having availed themselves of Moze's invitation..........! But last time, wilkofife's words cut me to the core - !!!!! - so as soon as the opportunity arose I decided - no graininess, no gliders, not even any grainy gliders! Thus hopefully, allowing to the fact that the following image does not illustrate this aeroplane in its entirety and some men have managed to get in the way of a good picture, this is an acceptable challenge - although, perhaps, not one that will tax too many for too long!

                      Well it's undoubtedly a Caudron (the "A" of Avions Caudron is even visible)... I think it may be a Caudron C.690M.

                          All I see is a flickr image that says "image unavailable".

                            What, on this thread? When I use flickr as the medium to put images up onto this thread, I choose the private option. But I wasn't aware that it affected the images that appear here. But if that is the case, Moze, please let me know and I'll go public on this flickr image.

                              I don't see it either, even though I'm signed in to Flickr.

                                Also, when I click on the previous photos AA has posted, it prompts me to create a flickr account which I do not want to do.

                                Maybe the public thing will help.

                                  I see it most the time, but occasionally it indeed doesn't work.

                                    This image has now gone public! Quite why Skyraider3D seems to have received preferential treatment, well that's beyond me. It's really odd as I've use flickr in the same way, hitherto, without anyone telling me that they can't see the image. Maybe flickr have changed their set-up very recently. Anyhow, for the inconvenience, I apologise. But if I haven't now cured the problem, please let me know and I'll post the image again as a thumbnail.

                                      Yay, the Internet likes me!


                                      Could it be the C.581? The only photo I find is a German-captured one. But it appears to have the steep tail fin leading edge of the one in your photo.

                                        It works!

                                        But I'm none the wiser...

                                          No, it's not the C.581. You've gone too far in the other direction, Skyraider3D. If it helps in the identification, the pilot in the picture is Maurice Arnoux.
