8028410q, I think you'll find the L-39 has been done to death ! Enjoy Majorca !! Keith.

Gun sight, underwing stores and the ubiquitous "Mig" clock, so ground attack or advanced trainer - Russian, Czech or Polish?

Mmmm... always worry when the poster says "easy" "simple" "few problems"...

It looks quite well equipped.... but no dual controls, and instruments angled for the pilot's benefit... Mag Keys look "Lycoming Standard" but apparently no mixture control or toe brakes but posh Wood Grain dash!

No idea.... never seen anything like it... so

French - 60's and probably didn`t sell well....???

It is the Filper Beta 200. An unusual tandem light helicopter which didn't sell. (For pretty obvious reasons I would think.)

Filper Beta

C2j has it. The Emigh Trojan. A squat little 2-seater from the late 1940s, whose distinguishing characteristic is that it had rib stiffeners on the outside of the wing surface.

An aircraft I had never heard of. Picture and more info here
www.redbackaviation.com.au/cobra_helicopters.html

Harold Emigh's first contribution to private aircraft development was his Emigh Trojan, an advanced all - metal two - passenger light aircraft whose flying surfaces had the ribs on the outside of the wing. Furthermore, it was designed so that the right wing could be flipped over to become the left wing, etc., and the right horizontal fin and elevator could become the left horizontal fin and elevator, or stood on in and become the verticle fin and rudder.
I have to say I cannot imagine flying around in the US and anouncing to ATC that I'm flying a Trojan

Team Surtees

Remember the early 70's Surtees F1 cars? Durex sponsorship??? Similar deal.

Now you know what a Trojan is...

Hi, group,

I was unexpectedly called out and am now on the road away from my computer. (I'm using the one in the hotel lobby.) I'm embarrissed to have to call "OPEN HOUSE", but it seems most appropriate.

Sorry for the delay.
