Noyade, it is a Piper PA-46R-350T Matrix, essentially an unpressurized Malibu.
You have control.

The Fokker D XXI is correct RR.

It's all yours.

I didn't catch your reply right away, looks as though the timeclock has gone wonky .

Edit; Open House declared by Ridge Runner!

Not German...

Nice rendering Noyade, except the engine was a 4 cylinder inverted Walter Mikron.

Ah! Thanks Karlark, I think. I was in Belguim...

The Gribovski G-23....?

(My interpretation of the tail was way off).

Edit - Just noticed that when you make a new post the Thread Index remains unaltered?! Usually a new post bumps the thread title to the top.
