Good evening Ken,

That's because it is the Boncourt Aunis Jacob (BAJ) Type IV fighter of 1918 (Also known as B.A.J. IVC.2) Well done

Morning Martin. There's a good reason for that. It is from a Scandanavian country

That's the one David Available both as a land and floatplane and first flown in 1928, it was the first Finnish designed mass produced aircraft.

Gentlemen,

I have the saddest of all news. I have received the following personal e-mail.

It is possible that I am the only one who knew RegDep by his real name Heikki. He loved to call himself "your wingman"

Dear friend of my beloved partner who has unexpectedly passed away today. I was the one who had forwarded you the airplane picture some months ago. So I happened to have your email. I knew that he has enjoyed so much being connected with you, he had such a lot of respect for you and really saw you as his good friend. Wishing you all the best and please keep him in good memory. If you would like to know more, please just contact me. Anja-Christina Albert

Betreff: Fwd: Greetings from Gatow from your Wingman
RIP Heikki..................wingman.....................

Sorry - I am now in even less mood to play SC.
