Ridge runner, the list says no to Bujon Crosse.

Is there perhaps another name for this aircraft?

Thanks skwinty....like Martin, I thought it looked familiar but there are quite a number of similar machines, including at least one other with the somewhat unique undercarriage arrangement.

Here's one to consider. Will be offline for a while but will check later.

Gents! A very unseemly bunch of posts, which I have deleted. They deserved nothing less. It is quite easy for me to close a thread if the spat that happened occurs again. Your choice.

THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU PRESS THE SUBMIT BUTTON.

Just looked in and all appears quiet.
Clue 1...powered by a Hispano Suiza engine.

I was somewhat shocked to read the recent posts (now fortunately deleted) from one particular individual . We may all get frustrated when we can't identify a challenge, but can I remind everyone of the spirit of the thread.....this is a game, for fun, to test our recognition abilities - you don't take it out on others when you don't know the answer. Once any of us resort to abusive posts of the nature I saw when I logged in this morning then it's time for that person to leave the thread.

However, there was one instigator, he also being the perpetuator. It is therefore in appropriate to tar all with the same brush, despite the sentiments being correct. As is evident, we are all a well mannered bunch!!!

Good Evening Gentlemen!

I'd feel bad leaving an Open House without a caller all by itself for the whole night…..



Edit to say that I am retiring now but hope that there are at least sone stabs at this one in the morning when I Shall Return….

Happy hunting, night shift!

Hi Graeme, Great weekend cruise. Good people, food and wine.

Yes, it is the Henschel He 121, the one and only, the first aircraft built by the German Henschel. Only one aircraft was produced, in 1933-4, as a testpiece for the Air Ministry.

Over to you!

Morning Martin !

Not the Rafale mate. I bought a cheap book on Jet Fighters recently and this was there. I hope the artist is accurate.....I don't know much about modern jets.
