Short SB.1

Used to be regular here but drifted away due to combination of lack of silhouettes and Photobucket issues. Latter seems OK now so should be able to avoid OH if correct but can somebody clarify what , if any , the new rules are ???

Welcome back One11. No strict rules anymore. The challenge can be a silhouette, photograph of complete aircraft or a cropped photograph, similar to those used on AviaQuiz. We try not to cut across the other Challenge thread that concentrates on intakes & exhausts. I still maintain the list in order to avoid too many duplications. The other rule is once the challenge poster has agreed with the answer the winner posts the next challenge.

Hello one11,

It is Douglas but not the O-43. (So very close, though).
