I think it's an Aero 145.

BSD.

p.s. nothing to post, so if I'm right it's a free-for-all to post.

BSD - I think you're right, but I`m not sure if there is any difference between the designation Aero 145 (which has featured before) and the challenge aircraft described as a Super Aero 45, Maitland Air Charter (G-APRR)... Perhaps someone could clear this up...

I don`t have a cockpit to post at the moment either... so it's open house.

pigboat, Not sure what that is?
larssnowpharter, It was a biplane.

More clues as I will be back in 7 hours:
Between 90 and 100 were built.
Flew for over a decade.
It was developed from another craft and had two others developed from it.

Edit: I should mention that this was probably a one off modified version.

This was not a Farman.
This plane type was used as transport/cargo, but not in this case.

I think Mel is on the right track. In the unlikely event that he is wrong, could this be an interior view of a Valentia used by Alan Cobham to develop air to air refuelling?

I must have given one to many clues!
Mel is correct.
This Vic was used for blind flying training by the RAF.
Well done on what little info available!

Next Challenge

Thanks Akubra the clues that gave it away were the fact it was a Biplane and used for transport/cargo and the cross section of the fuselage.
Now this one is really too easy:-
