Sorry Krakatoa, it's not from America (north or south)!

G'day Trevor.

I'll try for a bit of Sidestrand?

Saw this on the net, although the struts don't seem to match...



In the early 1930s a Sidestrand Mk III was fitted with Bristol Pegasus IM3 engines.

Evening Graeme,

It is a Boulton & Paul Sidestrand III Well done

I think the strut mismatch is due to the fact that my "bit" is looking towards the fuselage, whereas the shot you found was taken from under the fuselage looking outboard and the cowling/exhaust pipes are identical to the the one in my source (see link below). However, I do believe that the caption is wrong because the Pegasus cowlings, possibly trialled on the III, but fitted to it's later development, the Overstrand (as mentioned above by David) show numerous"blisters" over the engine's rocker gear.

This Sidestrand was fitted with Bristol Jupiter XF engines and tested with "The Boulton and Paul Townend Ring" combined with an exhaust collector (see link below)

Good Morning Trevor. Is it the Caproni Ca.335 / Sabca S.47?

Hello Karl,

It certainly is, well done

I thought a Belgian one-off might have lasted a while, but when I realised that it was really a Caproni, I thought you'd surely get it at first sight!!

G'day Karl.

First thought was the S-38, but now probably the Consolidated Commodore?
