Just the one.
And sometimes described a "homebuilt" too but I think that's overstating the case. It appears to be a very competent looking piston twin indeed.
There's a strong clue to its cultural, if not immediately geographic roots in the pic...

Is there no-one but Asturias following this thread any more?
It's beginning to seem a bit of a monoculture here...

Donít be lonely, mel, plenty of us are out here but weíre not much good with little cockpits!

Itís got a compass where the horizon should be, is that a gear lever outboard where RHS canít reach it and at 0103 or 1303 the sun is quite low? Apart from thatÖ huh?

This is not from a country known for manufacturing aircraft.

Upon review of this challenge I have concluded that it is too obscure to be found. There is next to nothing on the internet to aid sleuthing and very little info available. In order to revive this thread I declare open house.



Lithuanian "Homebuilt" Kensgalia VK9

I was surprised that no-one spotted the obviously Russian instrumentation though - that yellow centred one is unmistakable and the chaotic flight instrumentation layout is surely not Western.

Boy - that's a new one........................ doesn't look too bad from the outside. as for instrument panels there have been some real horrors on here from western companies - admittedly tho not on aircraft with long production runs

Surely that'd be overly esoteric even in the Which Airfield challenge?

One thing I've learn't is never to underestimate the people on here - there are some who may be able to give the reggie number from that shot............................ and actually the airfield is a clew in itself

I think at that rate I'll repost my Kensgalia photo in Which Airfield in the hopes that someone might identify the 'church tower', and maybe supply the vicar's name too!

I have a feeling the aircraft in the background is a significant clue.

It might be but its not intended - I have no idea where that picture was taken.
