Now I've had a closer look perhaps not the Project Blue Book.....however may be the Debreyer JCD-03 Pelican?

Here's the Pelican:



Very similar but we've had the Pelican before....?

Afternoon Ken,

Another flying coffee time visit!

Thought I'd second your claim as correct.

Graeme's illustration is here ODDWINGS

I think we've had it before ? Edit: just seen your edit

Off to walk dog now!!

Thanks Trevor, that confirms it then. I was just a little uncertain as we've had it before.

How many more days on K9 duty?

MacDonald S-20 ? Found on aerofiles or proberts ?

Scratch that, I'll say it is a Pazmany PL-4.

A reason to ask for designation that I could imagine one should see from the picture (I cannot) would be the turboprop engines, so my last is L-1049C or D.
