I think Noyade new what it was
Not really. Immediate thought was Haystacks = British = looks Percival. Then Ken said European. Thought French. The rest is history.

Easy one in return then...

Evening Ken, G'day Graeme,

Apologies for absence, it's just been impossible for the last few days due to workload leading up to the holiday, but couldn't resist a quick peek afore bed!!

Is that a Heinkel He 100 ??

Open House please if it is; yup, another 5 am start

I was hoping you might have forgotten all about it Trevor.

Open House.

Good call on the He-100 Trevor

As its OH I'll make a return appearance with this one:



Clues so far:
- European
- Wiki states it is the most widely produced aircraft from this manufacturer
- We have had a closely associated aircraft from this manufacturer as a previous challenge

Thank you,LM. Pure luck with finding that one I am afraid!
Not a silhouette, but I hope it is acceptable?
