Well - I'll accept that. SLD must also know it as well with his Fair-child clue. I have seen it labelled as the Super Tweet and Rutan was involved so over to you Sycamore or SLD.

Hi SLD.
Interesting. I've been looking at lotta aircraft with a central piece of cockpit glass. The net shows a variety of cockpit layouts, but I think it's this machine...

More like a Belgium or Ost-Frisian bus:
Everybody can sit in the front.

Is there anyone naming the challenge?

Exactly!
I don’t know if Ernest Gann flew one of these, but indeed a “Fly me” appearance!

Open house called.

"Gasoline" - so American for sure - looks like a nose gunner pops up in front of the windscreen as well

This way no additional clues required!

But not a Bellanca, I am afraid.

No takers yet?
It seems the 3 clues are not enough?
Try searching experimental bomber.
