Not the British Klemm Eagle Mk.1 It is in fact the BA Eagle 2 Registration G-AFAX. 37 produced and G-AFAX was the only one with a fixed undercarriage and was built in 1937. You have control.

Thanks Mel. The aircraft displays truly classic lines. The two cockpit photos I was able to access showed a nearly identical instrument panel with the exception of a crank handle on the right side, and no nifty firewall mounted pockets to hold charts, the POH and a 1938 issue of Aeroplane Monthly.

Please note I'll be able to post a photo at approx. 2130UTC.

It is certainly a Percival aircraft and so I will go for either a Percival Prentice or Provost.

I confess to having a deja-vu moment with the EP-9, but didn't have the list of previous challenges at hand to check if it had been done already.

Well done evansb, the Fantrainer 400 it was. Your go.

Thanks cringe. My pleasure. I won't be posting a photo this round, I would however, ask some ppruner who hasn't posted in a while, or ever,
to post a cockpit photo. Cheers!

Not a Consolidated, nor a compatriot.

Looks like the front cockpit of a good ol' Tiger Moth.

Speedbird has it -- DH82B Queen Bee

To quote from the placard at Salisbury Hall:
"Based on the Tiger Moth biplane but with the wooden fuselage of the Moth Major it was a remote controlled target aircraft. After launch by a steam catapult, radio signals from a ground unit operated compressed air valves in the rear cockpit. These controlled ignition, throttle, elevator and rudder. The front cockpit has a full set of flying controls for ferry and test purposes. 412 were built between 1933 and 1943 -- 360 as float planes."

Over to you Speedbird.
