My eyes, my eyes! That Loening C2 designer must've had some strange mushrooms...

Leoning C-2H - apparently one of two for the US Navy - XHL-1.
Over you Beamr.

Neither, sorry.

Hint: These had been modified to fully pressurized fuselage.

Does that make it a Canadair 4?

Yes, it's a twin. The Canadair is a tad too big, these were intended as exec transports, hence the fully pressurized fuselage was done. The modification included DC-6 flat windows in the cockpit.
On a side note: the DC6 seems to have been a popular organ donor for multitude of projects, this had many parts from a six as did the Canadair!

well done! The changes are quite massive as originally these were A26 Invaders. Only 8 conversions made, of which two were delivered to Air America, of which only one saw any action in SE Asia. Apparently it was more often misidentified on the ground as an armed military aircraft causing missions to fail. As the fuselage was pressurized, they changed longer nose on to it to create luggage compartment.

Heres a few pics inside. And a pic of one that still exists in somewhat poor condition, but shows the modifications from Invader rather well.

Noyade, all yours!

Thanks Beamr.
Another interior/cockpit shot - but with less wood paneling and room than the Marksman.
Only five built.

The AASI Jetcruzer fits the bill but I could not find any cabin picture to confirm.

Quite right. The aircraft in the challenge climbs more like a homesick angel.
