Hi Martin, some questions:
- single prop?
- is that a cockpit window open?
- is that a tie down on the port side?
Cheers

Hi Martin,
If that has as many props as I can see in the picture, and I recognize the wheel struts, it's the FK55.

cheers,
Jake.

Hi Jake,

Is it a Zivko Edge 540 ??

Have to be an Open House if correct as I'm off now and can't monitor tonight!

Edit: Evening Ken (thanks for PM ) and Martin, sorry to bugger off so soon, but dog needs walkies (and supper)

Evening Trevor..hope it's not the Zivko Edge has I had ruled that one out!

How about the Staudacher S.300?

Edit disregard the Staudacher.....that small fillet on the leading edge of the tail is bugging me...I wonder, does this aircraft have winglets?

SincoTC is correct - it is the Zivko Edge 540. More specifically it is Matthias Dolderer's from the RBAR.

As SincoTC requested - open house.

cheers,
Jake.

ACAZ T-2 ???

Edit: Just starting work and surprised to see your light on Brian; can't sleep mate or a conscientious monitor?

Unless you've found another name for it, it was certainly easier the second time around !! (SC Page 619)

Open House please if correct as I'm in the workshop most of the day

Morning / Afternoon all
Wish I'd logged on last night now...I was the one who originally posted the ACAZ T-2!
Certainly looks like it
