Edit to say...Cairns Model A. Found the 3-view!

Morning.

Just posting to confirm Trevor's coffee-break Cairns find.

Oh, it was you Ken?!
I will now stop looking at Russian AIR designs.

Looks like S.N.C.A.S.O. SO-95 'Corse' II, but it was a tail-dragger

S.N.C.A.S.O. SO-94 R

Or SO.93

But the tail fin top is different…...

It is European but not French or German. It was a one-off prototype that saw service as a staff transport.
