Like Graeme I had though high wing, but had also considered mid-wing?

Is it just me or has the silhouette disappeared....?

…was also suspecting that there was a cockpit behind the wing silhouette….

Could you please confirm the high wing, too, RR?

I did find a spatted Breda 64, but if mid-low wing wouldn't we see a bit of the cockpit?

Just you mate? Silhouette is still there Ken.

Whoaaa! And I was wondering if the spats were badly silhouetted, going too low in the back. My apologies RR!

Hello again!

Been driving to work!

Yes, the Breda 75!!!!



The aircraft was begun in 1937 after the Ba. 65 failed in its commitment in the Spanish Civil War as a reconnaissance. The new base, reconnaissance aircraft was taken just type Ba.65 . Designers edited by G. Panzeri wing, tail and all-metal body and everything about one-fifth increased. The low-wing, however, become high-wing and landing gear remained solid. The bottom of the hull was richly glazed, to have the best view of the observer. At the same time there was space for the installation of a mobile machine gun. Similarly, the modified cockpit, to which end it was possible to install a second mobile machine gun. Only Built protoyp, powered by licensed motor Isotta-Fraschini K.14, but suffer, and the couple were armed only with machine guns in the wings.
The prototype first flew in the summer of 1939 and the tests went well. But airplanes Ba.65 with which they operate jointly Ba.75, outdated, and started to be downloaded from the front line and the type letecvo lost interest. Development was thus halted early in 1940, built an airplane fate is unknown.


Ken has control

Quick question. If I log onto PPRuNe's "History and Nostalgia", the moment I visit another PPRuNe branch, say "Jet Blast", does my green light in H & N go out?

Right. So even if your light is on...you could be "miles" away.
