Morning David....I thought this one might make a return appearance

So, a Russian homebuilt job? The one visible engine appears to be overwing mounted? So 2 engines?

Yes mate - I know you saw it and my clue, so this is your chance.

Single engine with choices available, but I can find no details of which ones.

Thanks David. Presumably a recent, ie 2000's design?

Can't find any dates mate, but I reckon you're on the right lines.

Off into class for about 45 mins.

Thanks for the clue...I think!

Mmm, not in my bumper book of Russian homebuilt aircraft

So, low wing, single engine, single seat homebuild, probably recent design, with a large tail!

Wanna modded shop pic?

If not, how about another photo of the aeroplane.

All it makes me think of is the Argo-02 which IS in my bumper book of homebuilds! So something else by Argo?

Well a bit stumped really. The tail is totally different from what pictures I've seen and the line drawing.. Guess its an adaption of the basic design? Peril's of homebuilds - builders can change things
