Mel, Meets all requirements except it is from the late 1950s, and sorry, it is not a Baumann.

Sorry Mel, not a Mooney, nor a Falcon B-290 Brigadier.

Sorry, not a Twin Navion. This aircraft is a one-off, and although it was a good performer, it failed to find a market.

'Cessna Aircraft Company entered the military utility aircraft market with a four-place jet, unveiled at closed showing to military officials on September 28, 1959.
The aircraft, designated the Model 407, was a sleek, low-wing, pressurized jet. "It is designed to fulfill military needs for a multi-mission, low-cost jet," according to Dwane L. Wallace, Cessna President at the time.'
A quick Google on PH's suggestion shows the above blurb (plus quite a bit more- interesting reading) and a copy of the cockpit pic is also on the same site.

puddinghead is correct Based on the massed produced T-37 trainer, the 407 was perhaps 5 years ahead of its time. Over to you.

Thanks Evansb. It's a shame they only made one - it looked alright to me.

Here's my challenge -

Interesting Cockpit windscreen formation. Flettner Fi 282V3 perhaps?

From the man who invented the trim tab in WW1 and several other ground breaking achievements, Mel is correct first, A FI 282. This version is unidentified and could have been either an V3 or 12.

Thanks for that Akubra. Here is a nice easy one for the nightshift, well that is of course if you are in Europe.
