The photo was posted here awhile ago, and originated from a San Diego Archive, which misidentified the aircraft. I think...

Who knows, maybe I'm mistaking this one with the Gloster F.9/37 (which is an H-tail) because of the general appearance of the nose and engine pods...
Anyway, time for a good dinner!

Wasn't the 143 the prototype for the Blenheim?

I'll plead no contest.

I had thought that Bristol 142M was Bristol Blenheim. But Bristol 142 Britain First has been dubbed as "the sire of the Bristol Blenheim". Go figure all that out. I think we need RR to sort the mess out .

No need to about a short nosed pig.

I looked at this to make the Bristol call, should have said type 143, but on seeing photos now I am probably wrong as the landing gear has panels attached.

So where are we? Oh yes. On our way to bed. Good night!

And about the time to do so (this was the response to #1814 ).

You still didn't answer my #1795 post (maybe because it went before your last one at that time)...

Edit: thanks...

Sorry, mate ...

Is it British? or at least European?
I have some vague memories, but cannot bring them to a focus...

Edit: there it goes again with that annoying bug...
No!!!!!

Evening!

Beechcraft AT-10 Wichita ?
The photo was posted here awhile ago, and originated from a San Diego Archive, which misidentified the aircraft. I think...
Hi Brian, I'd swear on a stack of bibles you posted this challenge image (not that long ago) and yes it was the AT-10? But for the life of me I can't find it in the old thread. At the time I asked you(?) if it could be the Nakajima J5NI and you replied with something along the lines of "no, but I can understand why you thought that".

I must be going nuts?!






Is it Japanese Martin?!

Graeme, that was identified at the time by the poster, Brian, as Cessna UC-78 (the Bobcat). #26402 on 30 May 2011. Brian's Photobucket got full and he has deleted a lot of his old challenges…..

I must be going nuts?!
This time, I think not.

Hey folks, HP to the rescue here!!!
I save almost all the pages in which I have posted something (that's paranoid, I know...)
So I went back and browsed through my archive and... that's where I saw it!!!

TA-DAH!


You can check the filename (minus the chars added by ImageShack, that is) against the one on page 1321, SC Mk.I.
Then how come the same picture is posted by evansb and id-ed as a Bobcat and then reappears and it's not that anymore? What's yer source, RR?

...at least I found where I saw that the first time...


Edit: that's not a Bobcat fer shure, look at the cockpit ceiling/canopy, it can be opened!!!

I confess I am a little confused, but there again have had a long day. My first thought was a Bobcat, but looking closer the nose appears too short for a Bobcat and the canopy looks wrong. Would it the Cessna P-10?
