Windriver,

Interesting choices, but none of those.

Tiger_mate,

What caused the vibration?

The instrumentation on the quizz makes it look like a motor glider to me, though I do not know if such beasties have a variometer as standard. (Which is not present).

The Bronco vibration is due to design and proximity to the engines. If you look at the rear seats location, you have the working end of 2 jet props either side of your ears, and even with a helmet on, it is noisy and vibrates.

Low level forward air control tends to take your mind off it a little.

Yes, I imagine that environment tends to focus the mind on things other than comfort!

Not a motor glider and you are right, any motor glider would have at least one if not two variometers.

Foxmoth,

Not a Citabria, but very reminiscent. I think the designer might have been inspired by the Champion/Bellanca products.

I made the above comment in reference to the panel. After referring to a photo of the whole aircraft, I think a better description is a Citabria/Super Cub cross with a bit of Maule thrown in.

Windriver has it

Yes, it's the Argentinian Aero Boero 115, a development of the 95, which first flew in 1959.

Over to you, Windriver

Windriver,

How about an Alon Ercoupe?

Can't quite make out whether it has rudder pedals, but I think the original Ercoupe was designed without them, having "simplomatic" controls.

Sorry not the Ercoupe... this has a conventional control system.

(Talking of Ercoupes is it true that the original 707 pilots were taught crosswind landing techniques in the Ercoupe before flying the jet?)

I do not think this is an aircraft built in the USA. Can you confirm?

This aircraft was not built in the USA. This impressive aircraft is a development of a much more familar type.

I will take a stab and propose it is the Aermacchi AL 60 or variant there-of.

It's not an Aermacchi, but a similar flavour.

Not a SIAI-Marchetti. Perhaps the word flavour was slightly misleading, but I can confirm this aircraft which made its debut in 1958 is of Italian origin.

I`m led to believe that (surprisingly) only 10 of this particular model were manufactured, one of which is currently active on the UK register.
