Apologies to all but we had unexpected visitors this evening so not had a chance to look in until now. Seems that both David and Graeme have seconded by guess - and Bri, I see you are online so I'll leave it to you to confirm (or not). Anyway assuming I'm correct it will have to be Open House as not had the opportunity to prepare anything.

Morning David...a motor glider I guess - small engines by the lack of any obvious bulges on the wing, or maybe a single engine driving two remote props?...German?

Nice one....I had seen a side view of it some time back when looking for something else. Hadn't appreciated the wingspan though

Here's the next one:

No obvious propulsion system so I assume a jet.

Morning Ken.

The flap track fairings and the winglets do seem unusually large, so perhaps the aeroplane is bigger than on first inspection.

I surmise it's also a fairly modern design.

French?

Morning David - it's not small - 8 seats.

Not French - eastern Europe

And yes, a modern design

Morning Ken/David.

Presently 21 deg. Just finished barbecuing on an open fire. Thai rissoles and vegies. Now sipping some white wine and with absolutely no idea what your challenge is Ken.

Polish?
