Thank you SincoTC!
The instrument was the lead to the shape.
Does anybody know what that instrument is?

Now this:

Hi BG,
Welcome to this thread.
I hope the new rule has given us a new contributor as
You are qualified to compete on this thread.
Actually everybody is qualified!

You scored a hole in one for the Aviocar C212.

Photo is a Spanish example, I stumbled over it when searching for the Fuerteventura thread.
Do you have any experience on the type or was it plain internet searching?
I hope you have a challenge to post?
(we can wait for that if you have to compile something)

Best regards SLB

Slb,

I didn't fly it but my son did. My being able to ID the CASA 212 was just a blind squirrel finding an acorn. I'm unable to compete with the level of knowledge demonstrated on this thread but I do follow it.

I assumed I was looking for a four-engined job, based on the four red handles on top of the panel. Two fire bottles per engine?

As a squirrel you probably have the right nose for it.
Please keep following the thread.
The posting of a good challenge doesn’t need to be that difficult.
We hope that you will post a challenge one time later.
For the moment I understand you want to declare open house?

Probably yes
( I did not know this feature would lead you in the wrong direction)

That’s what made it a good challenge. I must have looked at every medium-sized four-engined turboprop and jet!

I contacted bafanguy by PM. He has nothing to post, so I'm going to open the door and declare Open House.

No worries, but do feel free to compete again and maybe find something to post in the future

We haven't had a new one for several days so to keep things moving here's another!

Plenty of people looking but no guesses so far so better give a clue! It's British, late 20's and that's a luggage compartment behind the cockpit.

Thank you SincoTC.

What an interesting little aircraft. Note the "Pearson rotary ailerons":


World altitude record holder!

I had something lined up but I can't find it!

Open House.

The instruments look European to me, possibly German?

When I say "not European" I am referring to the airframe.
After a rather famous pilot had flown this aircraft he described it as one of the worst aircraft he had ever flown.

Are we in the realms of Thompson Trophy racers...judging by the instrumentation and past F1 experience...?
