It's about time that a limit was placed on PPRuNers who answer challenges, but aren't prepared to post one of their own.....

BEagle,
I share your point when it concerns posters answering quickly and so take away the possibility for others to search for themselves.

But in this particular case this cannot be said about Asturias. He usually has excellent contributions.

When I know an answer quickly I wait at least 24 hours before posting the answer.

I'm currently active on the three main quiz threads - Airfields, Cockpits and types - in fact on a couple of them I've been the only one really active for the last week. I feel I'm TOO Active on Airfields.

I'm travelling for the next 10 days on work (whoop! whoop!! G&T's all round) so now is the chance for some young whippersnapper to burst on to the scene and challenge Noyade & Bear - who are the Grand Masters of the forum.

Looks like a big aeroplane so perhaps by Handley Page.

It's not by Handley Page, and it's not as big as their Type O aircraft.

It is German, but not the Botha.

I use DuckDuckGo on the phone.
Assuming it's a bomber - and using the clues 'German' and '1916', it has an obsession with the AEG GIV.
Once you search the images, you find some good cockpit photos including a beautiful model.

Tandem, but not a trainer. The back seat was for his wife.
The design is just over 50 years old - but upgraded as time marched on.
The photo is circa 1991.

Essentially - Yes. Same colour (blue) scheme but it did end up with a turboprop. It's now a museum exhibit.
The maker was an ex-Navy pilot with fifteen years service - including flying Panthers in Korea. Once he left the Navy he attended medical school and became a family physician.
He died in 2004.
