Hi Graeme, a belated merry Christmas to you and your family. Not had much of an opportunity to look in during the last few days, and now pretty hectic with work. Anyway yours looks very much like the Handley-Page HPR-3 Herald?

Ditto.

Handley-Page HPR-3 Herald?
Certainly is. Your control Ken.

Very clever Ken. Not a dual-cockpit trainer like I originally thought...

Secret Projects of Aviation: Dewoitine /Sud Est SE 580



Pretty sure it's that, so I'm going to break all the rules and post another as there seems to be not many players about and I'm not back till late tonight and working tomorrow morning. I hope that's OK?

Hi Graeme, yes it was of course the SE.580 from France. Although I guess a project, construction was started, but never finished:



My initial thought on your latest is the Antonov An-8?

I believe so Ken. Your control.

Sources I have from the fifties refer to it as the Antonov An-4 but googling that gets me nowhere.

Thanks Graeme. I was wondering whether this was an "early" 3-view as the wing leading edge inboard of the engines is wrong. Perhaps taken from the prototype or whatever information was available at the time? I cannot see that the An-8 was ever designated the An-4, but if its from a 50's publication its possible the designation was not known and a presumption made based on the next even number in sequence?

Stand-by whilst I prep the next one.

Hi Ken. Is it this?....



Source says Gulfstream Aerospace Perigrine but was originally called the Commander Fanjet 1500...?

I may not see you again mate.
The End is near...

Hi Graeme...not the Peregrine (which I believe we've had before) but it is the Gulfstream Commander 1500 Fanjet. I think you're silhouette may be an early drawing of the 1500 or possibly what the production aircraft would have looked like...its definitely not the Peregrine.

Edit to say, one of those tall buildings to the top left of the photo looks to be a safe bet Just make sure you've got a helicopter with you just in case

Evening Graeme - I remember that Profile...the AJI Hustler 500 I believe. Had a prop in the nose and a jet in the tail if I recall?

Merry Christmas and happy New Year everybody. I have had a miserable time in Saudi, but hopefully a better year from today.

That looks like a Cangourou or that latest incarnation of it.

Bloody hell everybody's out on the P**s. Have one for me, the home brew here is only good for one or two pints, tastes not too bad but blows you up like a balloon.

Evening buttrick, good to hear from you, it's been a while! 'Tis a bit quiet on PPrune at the moment and as you say, many are probably off celebrating !!

Thanks for the Greetings, which I return; sorry to hear it's been miserable for you in Saudi and hope that the new year is a lot better.

Looks like a good call on skytrains challenge, I remember seeing it performing at Farnborough on a couple of consecutive years in the mid eighties, so I suspect Ken may have used his own photo (well, I can't find the same image)!!

I expect he'll be along soon.

Hi buttrick, long time no hear...good to see you back Spent 2 months in Saudi in 1980 and that was enough for me! Anyway like Trevor has said I hope this is a better year for you.

Sorry for the delay....been chilling out after a busy few days! Yes, it is the SIAI SF.600TP Canguro....not my picture, just one taken from the net. But yes, like Sinco, I recall seeing one at Farnborough, and at Paris one year.
