Dassault Falcon 10 possibly....a somewhat distorted rear view, presumably taken with a wide angle lens!

Or an Aerospatiale?

Only because the Falcon has dihedral on the tailplane.

Mmm, Aerospatiale....do you mean the Corvette? If so that has wing tanks.

Going to have to sign off. Engines don't look right for the Falcon 10 either, but in case I am correct it will have to be OH. Cheers.

Not all have wing tanks.

Here at Hurn though, FRA operates Falcon 20s.

Ah, in that case you could be right. Definitely not the Falcon 20....the wings are wrong.

Not Aerospatiale, not Dassault.

Got to become some full scale mock-ups, but not further….

The engines



Let me speed this one up a bit:

Clues: First to order this aircraft was Bill Lear, and he got his deposit back when US government chose the engine type for a cruising missile and banned its civilian use…..

Just having my first look in of the day, seems to have been motoring along nicely, welcome back to LM too! Got another couple of hours work before I go home so it'll have to be an OH if correct, sorry

Thanks Reg, looks like my edit crossed your reply, sorry but it's an Open House as I'm back to work now!

Edit: Disregard that OH; finished early, off home now so cogitate on this, It's a non-flying replica, but let's see if SC can provide the correct name !! Back in fifteen mins!

Breguet-Michelin BM-5. A bomber. Michelin in Clermont-Ferrand made about 1000 bombers in WW1.
