Thanks Mate!

A bit hairy silhouette, but need to go now for about 30 minutes, so didn't start fine-shaving.

Evening Reg, no obvious signs of power in your challenge. Are we looking at a glider?

Hall Aluminium Monoped?

If so will have to be Open House.

It is not a glider. There is a 120 hp Ranger in the conventional place. The propeller was missing (or otherwise invisible) in the original picture.

Yes, it is the Hall Aluminum Monoped, the one which killed Mr Hall himself.

No idea what are the slat-looking things in the Aerofiles picture. Those were not present/visible in the picture I used.

Skytrain has requested Open House

Farman Sport "Carte Postale". This 1926 aeroplane was the result of combining a Farman David fuselage with part of a Farman Goliath .
