Hi Mel. Bull's-eye with the PZL-26! Five were indeed built for the 1934 Challenge Internationale des Avions de Tourisme.



Over to you.

Thanks cringe.
In my search for finding more about this aircraft I found the following picture of the instrument panel. I was intrigued by what looks like a starting handle stuck in the middle of the panel. Looking at your photograph it looks as though this handle is stowed to the right of the windscreen. I would love to know the purpose of this handle. Can anyone provide the answer.

Did you ask that because the craft appears to be the colour of mushy peas?

Hi cringe
Looks possibly like a tri-motor. East European perhaps.

Hi, Mel. A tri-motor, yes. Not from Eastern Europe. It's a military type, based on a civilian transport.

Thanks cringe. Only one built I believe. Something a bit lighter.

This was not a Parnell aircraft. Right era though.
