    Looks like John has been away for some time. How about a fresh WOT? This one is a little unusual in layout.

    Hi Al
    Very nice picture, thks.
    Looks like the PR-2 Saltafossi by Mr. Ermenegildo Preti from Italy. Was completed 1945/1946, but possibly never flew (conflicting info). Was then re-discovered and restored and made first flight in December 2002.

    Now that was quick, wout !

    The original pic (scroll away...) is even nicer, but I messed with it to beat the Google picture search.

    You have control.

    A light twin. You should recognize some features.

    Looks like a Chris Heintz design, to me. Was there a Zodiac Twin of some sort?

    I'll have to "Google" the specifics, though.

    Hi Canuck
    The CH-620 Gemini it is. Two 80hp Jabiru 2200 engines. I think only the prototype was completed and flown in 1996.

    You can restart the match, please

    Nearly three and a half days on, one must assume that Canuck doesn't want to play and thus, in the absence of a next post from him, I suppose that it must now be open house. So hopefully someone will step into the breach. Sadly I'm too tired to do so!

    You got it Chris. This one was photographed at an airshow around 1968.

    Easy one in similar vein but figure out the rest of the story.

    Sorry, Old Trout. Senility in the Colonies, I'm afraid.

    Glad you lot are resourceful in my absence. :diablo:

    Not very good with gliders but this looks like one of those German numbers. DG Flugzeugbau or some such.

    Wink ....and the other one's got bells on it!

    ...........well no doubt it started life as something else before undergoing adaptation, so whilst not being able to identify the adaptation with certainty but having studied the image carefully, I'm going to suggest that it is the Azerbaijani DFS Weihe conversion utilising a Briggs & Stratton Quantum XM 50 engine mounted on a broomstick! Do I get today's prize?

    Good morning!

    In my opinion this is the Nimeta D-KGYY. The plane is a mixture between Schempp-Hirth Nimbus 4 and eta (But don't ask me for the "constructor". It was built by Glasfaser-Flugzeug-Service Streifeneder).

    Well at least I got the country of origin correct, even if - at a guess - I was probably about half a century out datewise!

    And if you'll forgive me a brief tangential excursion and a surfeit of curiosity, has there ever been an aircraft powered by a Briggs & Stratton engine? Having regard to the breadth and depth of knowledge possessed by many contributors to this thread, they should know if anyone does!

    Open House! (No time right now...)

    Span of the Nimeta (as on the eta) is 30,9 metres - roughly twice the span of a "normal" standard class glider.

    Bye for now,
    Thomas

    Hopefully this will not only offer a challenge but amuse as well! When it has been identified, I will credit the source of the image together with an explanation of it. To do so before would give the game away!

    Indeed, sir, the wonderful Davis Da-11 - 18hp B&S - the legend on the fuselage reads 'Mower Power to the People' !

    Indeed there has been, as is documented in this book
