Morning FDB.

I assume we're looking at a jet.

Is the wing cranked or is that a rather large probe?

Good grief!

Then either it's a big probe or, perhaps more likely, a very small aeroplane.

The fin shape seems rather dated - was there an unmanned version?

Yes, the first manned prototype for the Jindivik (the second one had some noticeable differences).

Noyade has control.

Not a Piper Martin, and not from the USA.

Oops . I see now it is on the list under a different designation. I'll will declare open house instead.

Edit: Challenge aircraft post deleted. It was the Sukhoi Su-12... aka Sukhoi RK on the list.

Maybe therefore better to delete your post #3994 to avoid confusion for anyone joining the thread.

What's it listed under Martin?
