dook,#678 would get you the `AOC carpet shuffle` these days...!!
Aircraft is FU-25 Fletcher Defender,brother of the FU-24 cropsprayer,later becoming pac-750......OH if correct...

Nowadays ,you`d buy an AT-8O2 for the COIN job

No workout - I'm president of the World Anti-Jockstrapping Society.

Got large Rolls Royce of single malts in hand at the moment.

Thanks, sufficiently different from a Firefly. On the road all day tomorrow, so cannot play. Anyone else for an Open House?

Supercharged ?

It look like the tubular frame structure should be covered, so is it some kind of restoration ?

dook just beat me to it, it looks like a WWII airframe, but the photo is modern and if you look in the background there's a vice on a workbench, so I agree that it's likely underr restoration somewhere and going by bear's recent posts, it's probably a Dutch aircraft in a museum in the Netherlands

It doesn't look like a furniture factory in the background so I don't think it's a Pander!!

How about a Fokker?
