You are absolutely correct it is the 7GCAA. You have control.

N9574S
Of course you dis sir! Honest chappie like you.

That panel though goes down as the ugliest, most un-ergonomical in any light single I know! (thoughts for a new thread?)

I've only just discovered this thread and am startled at the recherche aircraft and swift responses.

Citabria I thought, bit tatty but fairly contemporary shot (wheel on truck) so guessed at a mid sixties or so aircraft.

Well, the only time I'll ever get in first and ImageShack won't behave. So - open house!!

Caramba, I will stand in for you, Well done. This post is so easy I will expect "exact model" answers ???? Keith.

This one may be tredding the line of having been posted before, though in a much less updated form.

Well, there's a DC-3 under all the fancy new gloss. The gear latch and lever, the pedestal, the windscreen shape and the control column (though not the yoke) all give it away.

This is one of the turboprop versions, I'd guess, but I hate those abominations too much to care what they call it.

If that answer is close enough, make it OPEN HOUSE.

Agaricus, Yes it was that easy, I am surprised that, according to Mels listings, the DC-3 / C-47 has not been done before ! so I went for a 'nearly' post.
We all await your next challenge. Keith

I would assume we are still allowed to post the piston version, the Russian and Japanese version, as well as the 3-engined version, and the DC-1, DC-2 and the Super DC-3. Also the glider version. I am still looking for a photo of the amphibian DC-3 cockpit.

Sorry, not a Pietenpol Aircamper. It is a parasol wing, however.

Sorry. Keith, not a WACO Alphabet soup, but it is American. The challenge aircraft is very rare, and one of the few examples is restored and airworthy.

Sorry, not the Davis DW-1. Same time-frame. The challenge aircraft set a record.
