Hmmm. COIN aircraft or trainer? Looks as though it might be a tail dragger. The canopy intrigues me as it would seem that the windscreen is integral with the canopy. Date 1960s?

Jane's calls it a STOL utility transport and light tactical support aircraft.
First flight late 1960s.

Another clue: the principal operator was a European army.
Correction to first clue: Approx. 100 airframes were completed.

Sorry, not an Aermacchi AM3C. Right part of the world,
right category.

Sorry, guess inspired by Jabberwok and evansb's clues - I was looking for something seasonal and found this:



But perhaps you could have a go at this, which I hope hasn't appeared before...

Not sure about your first challenge, but from the look of it I am sure it is British. The second one is the Aermacchi AL-60 B2L.

Mel, I am not sure about the first one (Lapland surely! It is a design for a self propelled Santa Sleigh - typed in santa, sleigh and cockpit into Google!) but you are spot on with number 2. You have control...!

Right part of the Continent but not the Druine D.53 Turbi, I am afraid?

Merry Christmas!

My first thoughts were of a parasol wing, and I shouldn't have strayed from that line of thinking. I believe it is a Potez 60.

You have control
