    Having looked around for a cutaway drawing of the Alouette III, I can only find this
    http://s224700864.e-shop.info/shop/a...26aid%3D693%26

    which is a very poor reproduction from Airplane Issue 142. Maybe the back part of the frame also belongs to the Alouette III, behind the cabin glazing. Any helicopter experts out there who can advise?

    Yes, it should not be hard, given the erudition in this group!

    I think it might be the autogyro I saw in a photo with Jean Harlow posing in front, but I don't know its name.
    A Pitcairn? There was a PA-18 around relatively recently.

    Yes, I go for the PA-18,
    Is it this one?

    It is indeed a Pitcairn PA-18. You have control.

    OK. There is not much difference between them. Mainly cockpit size I think. "Mine" is also illustrated on the page you cited, but labelled PL1 there. However, I took this picture at Karachi, where it is labelled PL2!
    Anyway, over to you.

    Yes. Mike & Larry are friends of mine. As I indicated, I was there on Friday last.

    Hi Laurence!
    nice surprise YOUR photo of the PL-2 in Karachi.
    Do you know whether this example of the PL-2 was built by the military (Air Force personnel?) like they did in countries such as S-Vietnam, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Phillipines, Thailand.?
    Regards, Walter

    Good morning Walter. I was not able to get any information about the PL-2 when I was in Karachi. There is a reference in a forum
    http://www.defence.pk/forums/pakista...e-birds-4.html
    but is doesn't help much. The one at the PAF museum looks very rough in terms of finish and has no markings to identify it, although it does carry PAF roundels and fin flash (which I masked).

    That's a bit abstract. Looks likes a motorcycle exhaust to me.
