aviate1138 is correct. A radical design to be sure. You have control.

Thanks, despite its appearance it seems to fly very well.

Now for something completely different......

Looks like a spin-configured F-5/Test aircraft..?

A good effort,mika33,and I can see your reasoning. But not the Airspeed as8.
Same time period though.

Welcome to the thread mika33, if 16 is your age it is great to see a youngster taking an interest in these old aircraft. It certainly is a twin engined aircraft but I have a feeling this one comes from the continent of Europe.

Thanks guys.So I'm going back into my books.

I thinks that this aircraft is English because the yoke is characteristic of Avro airplane

Mika33 do not give up on it being a German aircraft as a number of German manufacturers also used that type of yoke on early aircraft. This is the Junkers F 13.

"Germanic", yes, but not German, although the Luftwaffe did use this aircraft.

For me its one of looking at the clues. Take the challenge above, the throttles and engine instruments shout trimotor. Its a stressed metal skin construction with a smooth skin so it isn't a Junkers, Ford or Fokker (just watch it turn out to be one of these) which will narrow the search down a bit. Looking for a fuselage shape that fits what you can see will be part of it but for this one I feel that the main point of identification will be the windows, that asymetrical DV panel, the step between the windscreen and the side panels and is that a kidney shaped window in the roof?
Ultimately it is likely to come down to how big your archive resource is (books, magazines, photo's etc). The internet is not that great on the really exotic subjects but challenges like this will expand its knowledge.

I totally agree with all that VX275 has said. I fortunately have a good archive resource and also have built up a good archive of internet bookmarks.

For mike33 this aircraft is not French but it is from the continent of Europe.
