Cheeky bugger!! You'll have to make do with the page numbers , Ken's was Page 18, 7th Aug 2011 and mine was Page 252, 4th Jan 2012

Dunno if you found them in one of your blasted books , but this one has I believe, only one site on the entire web that carries the drawing I used.

Alfredo Turbay
Thanks Trevor. So we're looking for designs from this man?

Google Translate

Something called a T-21?

His last known design, the T-21, dates from 1993, but transcended very few details about him, to the point that I only know that it was a four-seater plane.
Cheeky bugger!!
Ha! Says the Aerofile Code Cracker! Who asks for crew number details....

!!!

You've got it mate , the Turbay T.21

I think that the quote you posted above referring to the T-21 as a four seater of 1993 is a typo as it was a side-by-side two seater started in 1987 as mentioned in a previous paragraph in the same article!.

Pretty soon you'll be quoting that Monty Python line, "getting up before I go to bed" (I think?)

I hope you sleep well, at least for a short time mate.

Not French. It is military.

Evening Graeme...looks like the Fiat BRG?

Would have jumped in sooner but internet probs this morning

If correct make it Open House as my connection has been down overnight and is intermittent, and at best very slow, this morning.

Well done that man !!

It is the Ramano R-120, a French medium bomber of 1938.
