It is one of the other German manufacturers.... although the FF 29 sure looked close.

Morning Karark ,

Good call on the Puffer; I'd never have found that one in a million years and Aerofiles wouldn't have helped one bit!!

The reason I put the smiley in my post and question mark after the name, was when I flipped the image I could see it said Huff-Daland Duster on the fuselage and D-49 on the tail, (you can see it here): Keystone : Puffer | Flickr - Photo Sharing! I thought it was either an early Christmas present, or was too good to be true (and it was )

It seems like the Puffer was a bit of a "paper aeroplane" and Keystones part in it was a rather thin re-paint and re-name job!

From Canadian Wings:a contract was placed with Keystone Aircraft Corporation of Bristol Pennsylvania for two Huff-Duland aircraft which had specifically been designed for crop-dusting. One of the aircraft was to be equipped with standard wheel undercarriage while the other was to be delivered as a float-plane. The Huff-Duland aircraft were then re-designated as Keystone Puffers.
No quibbles though, A good challenge from Brian and a good bit of sleuthing from you

Now then; I'm pretty sure I saw that "looping the loop" shot too while I was searching, could it be from the Sablatnig SP's or the Gotha WD's ?? There were others as well as the Friedrichshafen FF's that had the correct look, but IIRC, those two had the wing shape too.

I'm out all day now, but I'm sure if anyone else is out there, they can home in it after your reply to elimate them or narrow it down. Have a good day

Morning TC,

Pretty much every clue was already there for me to swoop in on the Keystone..
Thanks for the good work.

The floatplane shown above was my Rumpler 6B guess... only posted due to boredom.

let's call it an Open House now.

Now I know you won't believe be, but at 0330 hrs I couldn't sleep. Kept thinking of tapered floats. Found it, logged on...but...

Top one...

Evening Mel. The sun is up now...but it still looks like the C-30 to me? French derivative maybe? > Lioré et Olivier LeO C-30 or nothing to do with Cierva at all?

You have it Graeme . It is the Lioré et Olivier LeO 30 taking off from the French Aircraft Carrier Bearn


As you rightly infer the French company Lioré and Olivier bought the license to produce a French version of the Cierva C-30 intended for Navy and Air Force.
This version was powered by a 175-horsepower Samlson 9NE.

You have control.

Good Afternoon Noyade and wishing all on the HSC a Happy New Year.

Is it the Italair F.20 Pegaso?

Thanks for the best wishes, same to you.

Is it the Italair F.20 Pegaso?
Sadly no, but you're on the right track. It is Italian and of the same time period. Both appeared in the 1973 edition of Observer's.

Thanks Graeme,

I have nothing up my sleeve or in my photobucket as far as new silhouettes at the moment.

It will have to be Open House.
