Evening Graeme. A quick coffee break....is it the Hanriot H.220?

If so will have to be Open House as going to be pretty tied up for the day.

Good evening gentlemen!

Been in hectic today plus meetings all afternoon; so first time on SC today and it seems to have been a quiet day.

here's one to try and keep things moving!

Off home soon, but will turn green light off when I go and will put it back on when I get home

Evening ninjaconnie,

Sorry, but it's not a SAETA

Edit:
Off home now, but will turn green light off when I go and will put it back on when I get home

Edit2:

No need to worry now, thanks Bri

Karlark is correct. It is the Continental C.90 powered Meindle (Burgfalke) M-150 Schulmeister. As per request, it is OPEN HOUSE.

Evening SincoTC. Yes it is the 45-80 Sekani!

Another obscure one lost in history. It was the largest "bush" plane ever built. It was fit with both skis and floats. It nearly bankrupt Fairchild!

Here are a few pages of photos:

You have control Sinco.

Thanks Karlark,

An interestig challenge; most of the photos on the web show it as a floatplane from the side; which looks nothing like your silhouette, fortunately I persisted because the description seemed to fit, then I happened across the Canadian Aviation site and found the image yuo had used (even that was captioned as a floatplane)!

Another early start for me, but I don't want this one tto linger as monitoring time will be limited, so here's an easy one for those on trailing or leading time zones !

And we know why that is don't we, 'coz it is

The caption says it's a Loire et Olivier LeO.451

I came across this almost ready-made silhouette while looking for images of the post-war flying laboratory 451E variant, which are quite scarce on the web, and being a lazy sod I couldn't resist using it despite that give-away tail

Karkark has control (or is too near bed-time?}

Oh well, back to work now for me, sleep well

Yes, it is time to hit the sack. I leave this impromptu one, please move forward once confirmed by anyone.



Thx Sinco, 'nite.
