Scrap the Slingsbys

Irishair, my first language is not English (nor Irish), but one of my first preferences is Irish lamb. I'll leave the details to the experts . Whichever way, the outcome was perfect. Need to go back for seconds….

Skwinty, correct.

Over to you skwinty!

Evening skwinty,

I do believe that's a Vultee XP-54 "Swoose Goose"

Just got in and going to get something to eat now, so Open House please if correct.

Edit: Snap!! well done Ken (I shouldn't have stopped to ask for the OH)!! At least both answers came AFTER the Challenge post

Is it a Robin Alpha ?? Not sure which one as there seems to be a lot of them! There's a similar angle shot in Wiki of an HR200/100

The horizontal tail looks about right, but I haven't found one with that aerial wire!

Will have to ask for an Open House if it is please, as I'm off to bed soon for a 5am start tomorrow!

Good to see you're light on again Reg
