Excellent sleuth skills Trevor . It is the "Caproni Sauro-1 aka Caproni Tricap".
It is a new one for me... always fun coming across new ones.

Good evening Mel,

That's a good call there!

I doubt you'll see LM back tonight now; so I'll second your answer on the following evidence if you wish to post another!

An episode of "Flipper" maybe?

Here's the next:

Correct that it is French but not Bernard. About the same timeframe.

Good afternoon Karl,

I found something very near in the Fright Archives for 1924, naming it as the Descamps-Brunet A.2, but by 1926 M.Brunet seems to have departed along with the slight differences in the Cowl/radiator area so I think that yours is probably just called the Descamps A.2 ??

Sorry for the late reply Trevor & Brian. Researching it more I see combinations of Caudron C-17, Descamps-Brunet 17 A2, DB-16 depending on the limited information on the internet.

The photograph posted was from the San Diego Air Museum archive and lists it as a Descamps A-2. The same website mentions it as the 17:



The Caudron C-17 photo in Aviafrance looks closer than the Fright Archive photo - different engines? Allegedly the Descamps was license build from Caudron. I am having trouble sorting it all out.

Credit goes to SincoTC and evansb. Whoever wants to take control, speak up... edit; or post one up!
