Sorry, Not the HP.42. This aircraft was several years later than the Heracles.

evansb. It is the right answer, it is indeed the Short "Shetland".
You have control.

Mel, You ARE correct. It is a North American X-15. I feared this would happen one day, and it has. My source for the photo was the #%&@= archives, and it appears they have misidentified the cockpit. They placed it under the #%&@= file and prior to posting, I did not cross-reference it to any other #%&@= cockpit photo. Sorry . This one is a wash, especially as the X-15 has
been done before. I'll be e-mailing the offending archive a missle ASAP. Sorry again for wasting everyone's time. You have control.

I did not think this would last this long. Clue is that this multi-purpose aircraft first flew early 1990s.

Is it the Edgeley Optica?

I'll answer my own question - it's not! Just Googled to see if I spelt 'Edgeley' right and realised the layout is wrong and the optica dates from the 80s. I didn't realise it was that long ago -must be getting old...

Let's start the ball rolling with a wild guess then. Dornier?

As you rightly say it is not the Edgeley Optica.

This one was not by Dornier. However you were right in it not being from the UK or the USA.

Not the PZL Wilga, however it was designed to fulfill a similar role. To date this aircraft has not been a success.
