Mr. G,

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

I would also like to thank you for starting this thread. It's given me and many other PPRuNers a lot of fun.

Little did you know what you were starting when you posted that C-46 photo. Over 5700 posts and 230,000 views!

Okay, who stole my rudder pedals and my forward visibility?

Is it a STOL/VTOL experimental type?

It is clear the pilot's view wasn't considered important:

India Four Two challenge.

I think we have had this before. It is the Lockheed Y0-3A, the Quiet Aeroplane, is it not?

Is it a 20's British flying boat?
Supermarine Sea Eagle perhaps

It is indeed the Blackburn Iris. I thought the bollards may give it away.

You have control

That's a great looking old bird Mel, but Good Lord it must have been a nightmare to rig.

I see I'm going to have to rustle up some cockpit pics.
