Graeme. Certainly from the photograph the cockpit framing structure is asymmetrical. The other photographs of the aircraft on the net tend to confirm that is the case.

Bri & Aviate1138. This aircraft was not Italian.

Not Polish or Czech Terry. It was designed and built to take part in the European touring plane championship mid 1930s.

You have it Bri. The Fieseler Fi.97



Looking at this photograph of the aircraft it certainly does look as though the port side of the canopy had an extra vertical frame compared to the starboard side.


Following the success of their two-seat tourer/trainer the Fieseler F5, Fieseler were encouraged by the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) to develop a four-seat version specially to take part in the European touring plane championship Challenge 1934.
The result of this request was the Fi 97, designed by Kurt Arnolt.
You have control Bri.

Fiesler Fi.97
Does anyone have an idea about what those "antennae" along the aileron hinge line are for?

Tracks, similar to Fowler type flaps allowing the entire trailing edge (including ailerons) to be extended increasing wing area by approx 20%. This, combined with HP leading edge slats, gave the aircraft the required STOL characteristics.

I'm Short on ideas, but if that's a clue, I'll try for the Short S.27, but where's the pusher engine?

Dunno mate. To me the cockpit looks like a bathtub on the lower wing - beer image....

Bump it up a notch - S.32?

Is there room in your cockpit for a passenger? The S.35 with a 50 hp gnome?



Much confusion exists over the identities and proper designations of these modified S.27s because each of them received multiple, uncoordinated identification numbers under various numbering systems.
