IMHO it has air operated main wheel brakes, retractable landing gear. Not British.
Just trying.

Not sure which model it is but you got me reading about its eponymous designer, about whom I knew little. Interesting life and a tragic death.

Killed in an air crash?
Possibly Juan de la Cierva?
If so, maybe the Cierva C-30?

Noyade, correct! Cierva C-30A autogyro it is indeed! Also known as the Avro Rota Mk1 in RAF service.

You have control!

Very kind but I donít have any cockpit photos without me or a colleague spoiling the view. If Noyade doesnít want control then please open the house.
