Just to confirm that Evansb has correctly taken control by naming the Cloudster II

Looks like the Emsco B-5 above.


one11; I hope you didn't mind that I confirmed the Cloudster II last night to get another SC up.

No problem Karlark. But when I last used to hang around this thread some people used to get upset about "thread rules"...............

Technically I think that there's suppose to be 2 separate confirmations when the OP is not available... I guess I used the web link as the 2nd

In any case, thanks evansb & one11; here is the next SC:

It went by a few different names, and that was one of them .

Sabredog has control.

Evening Graeme,

Is it the Surrey Flying Services AL.1 ??

I can only find a photo showing it in a very dilapidated state, but some of the features seem to fit

Thanks Graeme,

I thought that you would be back before you hit the sack at around my lunch break

And thank you too Mel . I used to check the "Fright Archives" regularly, but since I changed my browser to Chrome, it wont display the PDF pages and my IE at work is broken and I didn't have the time to delve!

Here is the next almost a silhouette!!
