Ariete was Ram.
Mine is Archer...........

(Aerfer) Sagittario II
I only looked at AERFER.....

Done!
Yours Reg.

But just looked again. Listed under Ambrosini. I have it only as Aerfer.

Oh well....

Exceptions being pure forgetfulness or absent-mindedness, new and challenging angle, or just to check if others are awake.

Was that wing wire-braced on top through a central pylon, and the wires are not visible?

No evidence of conventional lower struts.

I am intrigued why you have blurred the people!

The text behind the reversed picture seems to be in German!

Mate:

It was a cantilever.

Well, I needed to get the people away from under the aeroplane, so I blurred the rest, too. Not very skillfully, I am afraid The "extra" L/G strut should probably not be there. Maybe it was something that one of the guys under the aeroplane had in his hand….

The picture has not been reversed. And the text is not German. The file name says in German "Screenshot" .

Well, yes………

One of you tutorials said don't touch a low-resolution picture. But I find it refreshing to have pictures like this, (printed source from 1922), to balance out the three-views. Not taking a position against three-views; they are often interesting, too.

And, we are not running out of challenges. This one is from a pretty well known maker.
