Morning Graeme....thanks re the Coracoran. I recognise the photo but can't think where I've seen it.

No more Argentinian challenges for a while! This one is European, 1930's.

Some had inverted in-line fours.

Caudron C.480 Frégate then?

...or C.510 Pélican.

Not the C480...that had slightly swept wings.

The C510 is very close...but not quite there

If you say so

Same year of manufacture as the C.510 and very similar looking save for the tail, which on most C510's was significantly higher than on the challenge aircraft, and the engine exhaust, which on the 510 goes further back.

Caudron C.410.
It is indeed the Caudron C.410 Karl. Well done,



David, you came so close so if I may, in light of Karl's OH call, I award control to LM.

Buttrick, sorry but is your post a proposed challenge in view of Karl's call for OH or are you questioning whether it is a Caudron C.410?
