Not the Gotha Graeme, and not a German machine.

Edit to say, not Czech either.

Not the SET.10.

Will be offline for next few hours. If someone guesses and 2 of you agree then happy for you to proceed to the next challenge.

Neither of those Reg. I think you need to look at this challenge from a different perspective. This is a 1970's design!!

I should point out that as far as I can see only 2 of the challenge aircraft were ever built, of which one remains.
