I believe it to be neither the "Tin Goose", nor a Junkers JU-52

You are correct it is a Fokker 10A. You state "Not another Fokker F 10A is it?" From my records I have no record of this appearing before, if it has I apologise and would appreciate details so I can update my records. However well done and if you are unable to post the next challenge the field is open to all.

Hi Clint
Great to see you again. Great challenge, also great to see the thread you started still going strong. Will give this one amiss and give someone else a chance.

Aviate 1138 muses....
I should have omitted the word "another" Then I thought of the F 10A, added that and didn't rub out the "another".
Sorry, too much late night Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon but it is a wonderful thread and I have no evidence the Fokker F 10A appeared before. Your records are correct Sir.

"Sorry, too much late night Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon but it is a wonderful thread and I have no evidence the Fokker F 10A appeared before. Your records are correct Sir."
Thanks for that, I try to keep the records up to date but with the number of challenges since the thread started it is still easy to miss one and repeat it. Incidentally in June 2006 the Fokker F.VII was presented as a challenge on What Cockpit II. This aircraft was a single engined experimental design of 1924 and a high-winged monoplane, but Fokker modified it with two additional engines to enter (and win) the inaugural Ford Reliability Tour in 1925. Consequently the production versions F.VIIa/3m, F.VIIb/3m and F.10 all had three engines, and the aircraft became popularly known as the Fokker Trimotor.
Just read today that researchers have come up with another reason to savour a good red- as it could help slow the ageing process. So keep up the late night habit.

Hi Clint.
I am surprised to see your challenge still standing. I would have thought it would have shaken a few memories.

Hmmm, I'd have said one from the Douglas Commercial four-engined stable except for the control yokes. The rudder trim is very DC6/7-like.

I can't find a cockpit picture (yet) of what I think it is, so I 'll plump for the "Spruce Goose"

C124 Globemaster? If it is, can someone else put a picture up to keep things going as I'm having trouble with Photobucket.
Steve.

Yes indeed, a C-124.

Mel actually got it straight away and sent me a PM.
What a gentleman.
