Related to a Navion, perhaps???
More than related Martin, it is a Navion, in this case the Navion G Rangemaster, powered by a 260hp Continental engine.

You have control

Good morning Brian,

That looks like a Bernard 82 Bomber ??

Open House if correct please, as I can't monitor at the moment.

No lights on at the moment, but hopefully there'll be more online later!!

SincoTC is correct. The Bernard 82 long range bomber. First flew in 1933. Only two prototypes were built. As he requested, it is OPEN HOUSE.
