Whist there appears to be a lack of interest in taking part in Silhouette Challenges judging by the number of people who have logged onto the thread over the last couple of hours there still is an interest in the topic. The aircraft at post #10294 is the Parnall Plover
As an experiment I would like to post the following challenge. It is not a Silhouette but certainly an aircraft of Aviation History and for some people I should imagine also nostalgic. Open Houses are acceptable.

As you know mate we did incorporate AviaQuiz style images and photos on this thread some time back, but in the end there were howls of protest based on the thread title. Cockpit shots from the "outside" and Aircraft Carriers as aerodromes were other suggestions, but not to be. I'm more than happy to participate and think of ways of maintaining enthusiasm, after all it's all about having fun, and learning.
It is a shame that you all find it necessary to move across to Google as this thread was renamed "Heikkis' Silhouette Challenge" in memory of Heikki who was a keen follower of the thread.
I haven't moved mate. Still living in the same hobo shack using the same out of date PC but I like to look around and try different things every now and again. And no, I haven't trampled on Heikkis' grave. In fact, I'm sure he would have done the same.
I think I'm right in saying that's the navalised version of the Azcárate E-1 Sesquiplano (AKA Sesquiplano E) from Mexico ??
I've just got back from a business trip, thanks for filling the breach; I was going to reclaim my OH last weekend but my Internet was down again!
I'll continue to post on this thread for the same reasons as you gave above and like Graeme, I may well post on the new site if I have the time to spare, but I'm very busy at the moment and have a few emails and PM's to answer!
Edit: Evening Graeme
How are the fingers? You shouldn't have been making that gesture to a passing motorist when you fell off your bike mate
Thank you Mel, a most timely reply as I've just knocked off for the day and am off home shortly, nothing prepared up my silhouetting sleeve at the moment, so I'll follow the trend and offer an AviaQuiz type challenge
Will check back later after "walkies" and getting in some provisions!
David has taken action on my behalf Mel, not that I asked him to, but he has chosen to out of anger.
Those on SC who have also joined my google group will no doubt be aware of the reason for that anger. I have no fight against anyone on SC and I thought I had made it clear in my PM to regulars that there were certain reasons why I had chosen to leave.
There is no more for me to say. Suffice to say I am so disappointed in the attitiude of a certain SC player - I really thought that everyone on this forum had a good relationship. Sadly someones true colours have been displayed.
There is reference to Heikki's name further back. I think its safe to say he would be disgusted with the comments made to me and I would like to think he would be right behind me.
This is my last post, and I wish MOST of you all the the very best.

Thanks for the clarification Ken I was just a bit concerned that the wording and unfortunate juxtaposition of David's post in relation to mine made it seem that I was the culprit, which as you know, I was not!! It was just a case of David shooting from the hip in anger, but I won't put him in the "sin-bin"
I would just like to make it plain to any casual observers that I thoroughly condemn such an attitude and wish you well in the new thread and I will be posting on there as soon as time permits and I've had a chance to get to grips with the interface!
