Spot on teusje. . It is indeed the Banhidi Gerle, in fact the Gerle (Dove)-13.



Bánhidi achieved fame with the Gerle 13 when in 1933 he made a long-distance flight of 12,258 km around the Mediterranean. Between 19 February and 24 March, he and Tibor Bisits visited twenty-two cities in Italy, France, Spain, North Africa, Egypt, Palestine, Turkey, and Greece, spending around 100 hours in the air.Later the same year, Bánhidi made a flight from Hungary through northern Europe to England and back to Hungary, his route taking him from Debrecen to Rapla, Helsingfors, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Croydon, and then non-stop back to Debrecen.This final leg of the flight covered 1,640 km, a considerable achievement in a light aircraft at the time.

Tres bien Richard

But it's actually from 1942. The designation stands for the aircraft 1 from '42.
And what was a surprise to me, it was designed and built in my hown town.

You have control.

Een goede dag, Ton
I understand that the Difoga 421 first flew in 1946, but found conflicting date on the actual day (19 April of 16 May)

Dear Bradenav
The only ''jet'' version I know of is the AM-12P which was evaluated by the Italian AF. It was a modification of the AM-12 (Praga D piston engine) with a Turboméca Palas and first flew in 1962.
And..... to make things easier, I have a small photo photo of what is described as the AM-10, but with a single fin and not like LV-X7 with twin fins.
I though the goal of PPRuNe was to solve problems, not to make them bigger.
I suggest we limit ourselves to the worldwide fleet of AN-225s.

Hi RR.

I am waiting for WK to send me an image so that I may post it for him by proxy. He is having problems with his Mac. He was in contact with me last night at home and I was hoping that I would have had a new challenge by now.

My daytime e-mail is continuously open today.
