    The New "Wot Plane" Thread (For The Rules Of The Game, See Post #1)

    Webmaster just posted this on the "wot plane" thread:

    I am going to have to close some of the larger threads due to performance issues. Feel free to open a new thread if required.
    Cheers
    Webmaster


    So, I propose we do just that.
    Moze, can you repost your latest challenge please?
    If we agree we can ask a mod/webmaster to add a "rules in first post" note, as before.

    The game rules:

    A contributor posts a photograph of an aircraft to identify. Either use your own picture or be prepared to acknowledge its origin when finally identified (beware copyright).

    The first forumite to identify the aircraft (confirmed by whoever posted the picture) gets the right to post the next one, and so on.

    If he or she wishes to desist, "open house" is declared and anyone can post the next picture.

    Only manned aircraft that have actually flown allowed, so no missiles/drones and no obscure unbuilt projects or flights of fancy.

    A variant is to post a relatively well-known type but to ask a question as to when, where, why or who is in it.

    Timing: in order not to block the thread for too long, if there is no sign of an answer or a guess within 48 hours, the poster should offer a clue. If nothing within another 24 hours, a second clue. 24 hours later the answer should be given and a new "wot plane" posted, this time as "open house".

    "Open house" automatically takes effect if the one with the right to post the next picture fails to do so 48 hours after confirmation by the previous poster.





    OK, folks?

    PS: over 4000 posts and a quarter of a million visits! Not bad! Thank you Mr Creosote for having the idea in the first place.

    Bruce edit - As the old thread will disappear into the ether, it is linked here thus:

    Look at the rules, vulcan118, and then exercise a little patience.

    You got it. Include the starting aircraft? Which to me was the interesting part.

    Over to you.

    Long, long time ago...............

    This was posted on another forum I frequent. I believe that I know its identity, although not with great precision, so if someone can give more information about the subject of this picture I can pass that on to the poster on the other forum.

    Thank you, Chris, I'll pass that information on to the original poster on the other forum. The closest I could get to identifying it, from Jane's, was a 1912 Bréguet with a 9O hp Salmson (although this is illustrated as a landplane only). A similar Bréguet seaplane with a 200 hp Salmson, dating from 1913, is illustrated in the same volume of Jane's but that looks subtly different. The text - which I cropped - on the photograph was simply 'the seaplane at Selsey'. Oh, and I forgot to say - over to you, Chris!
