1929 - Dornier DO X?

NB JU f/flew in 1943 which would suggest the 'subject' dates from 1935??

Can you confirm this aircraft has 6 engines.... At first sight it looks like it should have, but maybe it's a twin and the other levers are for props and mixture or something...

Also it appears to have a glazed nose ...

Kitbag's challenge

As kitbag stated this aircraft first flew late 1930s. She was a 4 engined aircraft and the photograph was taken during its construction hence the impression given it had a glazed nose.

For elimination purposes can we discount the Dornier Do26?

What cockpit? - Aircraft types

A list of aircraft types posted on this forum was compiled by cringe, in December of 2006. It is available on page 18, thread #352. MReyn24050 added to the list as of March 5th, 2007, and it is available on page 43, thread #847.

Note that cringe's list is nine (9) pages long.

Mel, does the fact that you have brought our attention to the list of previous aircraft mean that we have had this already?

My post was in response to evansb's post # 1426. Not wishing to spoil the chase, the answer to that question is that it has not appeared since the last update at post #847 on the 5th March 2007.

Kitbag's Challenge

Initially placed as earlier than late 30s. Looks a bit primitive. 4 engines. looked like 6 from the throttles (?). Probably not a boat. Has a US feel to it. Military.

Mid 30's design, late 30's first flight.
Not Mil, not US
Less than 6 engines

Windriver has it, much to the relief of Mel & Evansbe I think! It is the AW 27 Ensign, one of the prettier products of the marque IMHO:



Windriver, you have control

Quite a looker I agree...

Whilst I root out a suitable candidate for the next challenge perhaps someone could explain the function of the 6 levers on the throttle pedestal. (4x AW Tiger 9C 14 cylinder Radials)

Not at all well done windriver
Since the thread was started by Mr_Grubby there have been 685 challenges of which only 36 have been repeated. I appreciate that it is difficult for new posters to come up with new challenges but believe me there are still plenty of aircraft not yet proposed. With the help of 'cringe' I have been able to keep a list of aircraft proposed to date. Unfortunately I have no means of posting this for easy access but I am more than willing to provide the information on request.
