Off tomorrow for a five day break - see you all on Sunday.

Employment ends next Tuesday midnight, so will have lots of time to play and sleeve.

I feel a 2012 Christmas special coming on - a hybrid aeroplane comprising parts of several - the winner is the first to get all the separate parts. Does this appeal to you?

Anyone need the services of a graphics illustrator/technical author?

I would say Vultee Valiant but I'd only be cribbing the answer from "Challenge" so OPEN HOUSE if correct!!

Martin are you a member of Key Publishing? Would you be able to post on this thread?

Maybe I should know it... - Key Publishing Ltd Aviation Forums

Pretty sure it's the Koolhoven FK.56

Good enough Graeme. It's the Wolfsberg-Letov Corvus 1F, a development of the original Raven.

Dunno mate.

Evening Graeme

Sleek, definitely, but not American. European design.
Crazy thought, French turboprop from the sixties? Something about an Antelope?
Like your style, but this is not French, not a turboprop and is from the 2000's

Incidentally built as both fixed or retractable u/c.
