Eurostar....well there's the Evektor EV-97 Eurostar. That was previously known as the Aerotechnik EV-97 Eurostar, and I believe in the UK it was marketed for a while as the Cosmik EV-97 etc etc. I can't any other Eurostars!! Then there is the TeamEurostar range....which is just a homebuild Eurostar.

Going to shut down now, so if any of those are correct make it Open House

Night

Swoop, swoop!!!! Evening all

Just managed to get the WiFi connection sorted at the house where I'm dog sitting, so I thought I'd look in before bed.

Reg; Looking at the clues, I guess that you may mean it's the original Aerotechnik EV-97 Eurostar, before they got taken-over by Evektor??

Edit: If that is correct, then I'm glad to see that Ken has got there first, he deserves it, and I would have asked for an OH anyway as I'm hitting the hay too! Goodnight gentlemen

Well, I think that's it. The type certification that the picture was taken from was on Cosmik Aviation EV-97 teamEurostar http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/1419/20110...EurostarUK.pdf - I just missed the connection .

Open House, then (on Skytrain's account).

Good Night.

Thanks Reg. Unfortunately the EuroStar has been one of an increasingly large number of aircraft that goes under several names. Very popular in the UK with over 160 on the register!

Seems that no takers around today so I'll take up my own Open House:

G'day Ken. I was just about to post one mate! But got sidetracked with jet rear-ends.

Does the starboard wing-tip make it look like there's a ventral jet engine? Forgive me, I'm a little obsessed with jet pipes at the moment.

What do you call those up-turned wing tips? Vortex generators or something? Does this thing have HUGE ones that interfere, silhouette wise, with the tail/fuselage line making it look like there's a dorsal fin extension?

Morning Graeme

But got sidetracked with jet rear-ends.
Whatever takes your fancy mate!

Yep, its one of those modern wing-tips that curls up, although from photos on the web some aircraft have a more conventional wing-tip.

European design.

Edit to say...not sure what the technical name is for them, but they are not huge, more just the proximity and angle of the camera to the aircraft..

Don't lie to me, I know you like and look at tail-ends!

Now I'm trying to figure out what the hell that monument(?) is in the background. I get distracted easily...

Sorry mate, was distracted looking at Mel's tail end!

Don't focus on the monument - not really sure what it is myself. Looks like its made of rubber!

Not a homebuild.

Edit, internet connection is very slow so only just seen your winglet drawing....no nothing like that. They are not unlike the EuroStar's, but they are bigger.

Going to hit the hay now, so will check-in in the morning.

That's the one.
LM has control

Last geography lesson we had, Austria was the answer.
I've gone from A (Hopfner), to B (SABCA) and now to C (Direct Fly)....so wonder what letter the next country will be?
