Abend Reg,

I think it may be the Koolhoven F.K.30 "Toerist" ??

I'm still at work for a couple of hours yet and hoping it's not going to be an "all-nighter" like yesterday, so it'll have to be an Open House if correct.

Oh well, back to the grind! Have a good night guys

It sure is TC!

Wing and tail design re-used in FK 41.

TC has requested Open House.

Open House is hereby granted.

Just got back in and no new challenge, so I'll reclaim my OH and leave one up for the early shift to play with. I see your light's still on Reg; you should be ZZzzzzz by now mate !!



Turning in now; not too early a start in the morning, so will check back in just over five hours.

Guten Tag Reg,

I'm at work now and will monitor as often as possible; there was not a soul on the active list when I checked earlier and no overnight guesses!

Edit: Morning to skwinty too, nice to see you up late and back early, keep it up mate

Good morning all.

I am at work and can only sneak a search in on the odd occasion.

Morning TC.

Last night at the hour you saw my light on I was tight asleep. Must have forgotten to log off.

I'll give your mousetrap the attention due.

PS: Good morning skwinty!

All rather quiet, so a coffee time clue is in order!

In view of it's appearance due to the angle of the silhouette, I feel I should point out that it is in fact a monoplane and has a 70cv engine.

Monoplane with a canard bigger than the wing

Aa. You mean "monoplan, avec un moteur de 70 cv"? Anzani?

I was about to answer RD's question with Le Rhone, but I see that Ken has done a lunchtime raid with the correct identification of the Landeroin et Robert tandem monoplane

skytrain10 has requested an Open House

Edit:

A Breguet again
Actually Reg, it came from (I believe) one of you're site's , although it has been on Breguet's site too

Landeroin et Robert monoplane

Thanks Trevor. And Reg, I didn't look in Breguet's, just found it after a few modifications to a search for tandem wing aircraft .
Back to work now ....hope to get a chance to look in later.

Skytrain, my reference to Breguet was on TC's posting, not you finding it . If I read Mate correctly, I should grab the OH, right?

Boo hoo , this time stamp business drives me just crazy.
