Aaaa - aaaa - aaa RR

I thought you had withdrawn it = deleted, but found it from #29362, and it was already then established as out-of-bounds, because no picture in web .

Interesting challenge per se, because it tells me that it is at least POSSIBLE that there is no picture in web in case that I don't find any…..

Morning Martin and anyone else.
Did much the same myself....suspect there is some confusion. Spit161 has almost certainly correctly idenified the AEG Triplane (albeit not by its full name) but skwinty's reply is a little ambiguous.
Apologies if I'm treading on toes here, but in the interests of everyone we don't want a stalled thread.
