More clues: The photo was taken in 1918. It was the first aircraft built by the men's company.

The men were subcontracted by Curtiss for a brief period. It is not Loening nor the Wright brothers..

That will be the Lockheed (Lougheed) Brothers; probably the F1. They had a connection with Curtis in that they built the HS 2 L under contract to the USN.

larssnowpharter is correct. Well done. The Loughhead brothers, Malcolm (left) and Allan (right) are seated in the Loughead F-1 Flying Boat. After a record breaking flight from Santa Barbara to San Diego, the U.S. Navy expressed an interest in the aircraft. Tired of customers mispronouncing their names, in 1921 they changed the name to Lockheed.

Twin engine? 1960s era perhaps.

It is not the Aerostar; it is a twin; it is an evolution of an aircraft that first flew in the late 50s so it is fair to say of 60s vintage.

Is this the Mauraine-Soulnier(sp) M-S 760 Paris II? If it is,have we had it before and if so, what page and post. Also, if so, I'm unable to post a new one, so the floor would be open, if so. Woods

It is not the Paris 2. The Paris II was featured 1 Mar 2006. However, you are very, very close. The aircraft is the Paris III of which there was only one example built. It had a different cockpit layout and was a 5 seater. The aircraft was in service with Aerospatiale until recently. The aircraft is recorded as being in storage at Reims Prunay.
well done
I'll leave the floor open.

General query.

In trying to locat the Paris II picture for comparison, I find many pictures are reduced to a little "x" in a box. Are these pictures recoverable?
Puzzled, Woods

It means that the photograph link has been removed possibly because the poster has removed that photograph from its storage location. I am certain they are not recoverable unless the poster can copy it to you.

Here a a few shots of the Paris 2 for comparison. They vary and I am not sure if any belong to the version that served so long with the Argentine Air Force/Navy.
