Hello Ken,
Snowy, sloppy drive home with shoveling chores complete... just back in... whew.

It is not a Mauboussin design, so, France can be x'd off the list. Close by though. One of Graeme's favorite countries, I have heard.

Evening Karl,

sloppy drive home with shoveling chores complete
Nice!! All snug and warm now for the night I hope !!

I think your challenge is the Fiat N.3 ??

Better call an Open House please if correct, as I'm off to bed now, gotta be up again in four and half hours , but the evening is still young in Alberta, so who knows, you may get one to play with!!

And a nice first silhouette.

Looks like the Aichi M6A Serian/Nanzan?

Noyade,

You have it in one, it is the Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan. Interesting aircraft as it is the land based trainer version of a floatplane combat type which was carried by submarine!

You have control.

HEAD SKINNER

I would say because only one was built the NTSB could only base their findings on the total separation of the wing at normal cruise as over stress of the aircraft.Not having any other SJ-1'S accident reports to refer to. His Family watching stated that they saw the wing seperate on final. Logs books showed 926 total time and actual 8hrs in head skinner. As Sincotc stated it is easier to say pilot error than in flight total failure. It was easier in 1964 because they did not have testing they have today to know what really happend.

Head Skinner

Thanks for the update Jarnold and the clarification in Post #5390 ;

To avoid confusion with other players who may not have seen previous widely spaced posts, I will say that Jarnold said what follows, about the subject of skytrain's challenge, revealed on page 100 of this thread last August and which I identified.

This aircraft crashed in 1964 and killed my neighbor Jack Sepos. Family members were watching and said he was not putting the aircraft into any kind of stress. NTSB said he exceeded its stress limits and that it was pilot error. Jack gave me my first airplane ride and I can not believe he did not know the SJ-1 Limits. He was a great guy and was well liked.
To return to the chase:

'866 has awarded Noyade Control of the thread Although I doubt we'll hear from him for a while yet, as it's only the very early hours in the land of Oz. I'm back to work now and I only see Martin's light on (can you post yet mate or are you still away?), so I guess we can wait. I note that on the NZ thread, where he posted the his Sunset piccie, the Aircraft ID quiz has been Open House for over two weeks (and we get twitchy after a few hours)!! Spoilt aint we

G'day Trevor. Day off today but I don't think I'll bother watching the Indians crumble like a stale poppadom.

Goodnight Sabredog. (Just curious - named yourself after the North American jet? - don't answer that if you then have to kill me.)

Evening Ken, reliable as ever.

stop mucking about and stuffing your face! Tell the man what it is, I can confirm it, and then we move on. Simple plan.
I think the clue is in the Varta Bosch logo, it's the MB-E1 (Militky Brditschka Electric One)

fuel cost | flight international | fuel price | 1973 | 2937 | Flight Archive

Edit: Evening Ken ; Maybe yours is the same thing, I had a feeling we've had this one, or maybe its I/C powered predecessor before.

I have to bail out right now as I got some important work to do, so I would have had to ask for an OH if I got it antway!

Gotta go now guy's!

Check out my link above and scroll down the page, there's a photo there showing SD's logo and Reg Number EO 9023. If I read it correctly the electric E-1 was converted from the HB-3.
