Let's narrow it down a bit. It looks European, possibly Italian?

Single-engined, variable pitch. Fighter?

I've looked at all the obvious candidates with no luck. I'll leave it for the UK morning shift.

My last clue:
This was an Italian export product for the 3 crowns.
This one was however recovered from an Italian lake:

Slb,

Somehow I missed the Falco during my search of Italian monoplane fighters. I'm surprised Asturias didn't get it sooner, since Reggio Emilia is only a short distance west of Ferrara!

Looking in my quiz folder, I see something that looks familiar. I'm not sure if we've had this one recently:




Happy New Year to everyone. Let's hope 2021 and the upcoming Year of the Ox (China) or Buffalo (Vietnam) is better than this one.

I was out on my daily constitutional TBH and had just settled down to go through every Italian fighter of all time when Bear kindly popped up the Swedish clue...


Lets hope for a better 2021 than 2020!!

I've found another picture which may help:



This aeroplane was designed as a bomber but was also used as a civil transport.

Very long shot as I have found no cockpit photos:
The Russian built license Vultee V-11
BSh-1 as bomber
PS-43 as Aeroflot liaison aircraft.

There is nothing political about the definition of Europe.

Slb,

Not the BSh-1

Да, Russia is correct. It is geographically in Europe. I even went so far as to check that the factory was west of the Urals.

If you look carefully, you can see Cyrillic lettering on the VSI.

The initial civil version had a three-person rear open-cockpit. The subsequent version was more civilized:




The military troop transport had more spartan accommodations. I could see the Hereford Hooligans going for this one!
