I feel a clue is needed:
It can be found in the right part of the photo.
And a slight correction:
It is a large canopy and there are no doors

An obvious question - is this a biplane perhaps? There's an awful lot of shadows around that could be from struts for a top plane

Ahhh - always reread the clues carefully ......

if I blow the picture right up I can see the word "Durand" just below the line of switches above the radios on the right of the panel - thus Google gives me the Durand MkV as back in production

OH if correct

While we're waiting......I looked up the Durand Mk V in Wiki, and saw the following;

"Durand Mk V at the Museum of Flight, Seattle The Durand Mark V has disappeared from the Museum of flight and they do not know where it went".

Surely there must be a story there? Does anyone know more? It's such a sad little footnote.

Oops I did not even see that myself!
the clue meant was the far forward lower wing.
Combined with the struts for the negative staggered upper wing.
You could have found this Durand Mark V when you would have searched for canard kit plane.
Instruments on the prototype were military surplus.
The large canopy slides forward and the rug on top of the dashboard and that on the floor do actually match (but not with the seats)




OH called

It wasn’t at the Museum of Flight Restoration Center when I went there four years ago. I would have remembered a modern Staggerwing!

Ejection seat and OX, so kinda 1978-ish? Could this be a NASA vehicle?

Not a Night Hawk - an awful lot of these were built

The original was pre 1970's - this may be an upgrade tho around that time

I have it down as MiG 17F - and this is the picture I cropped it from............. it's run by RedStripe MIG but TBH its very similar to the Mig15 (bottom) - some differences in the side panels for example but I think Bear has the con......................

Thanks Asturias,
But sufficient differences on the Left panel to have been able to identify correctly if I had taken more time.
I think I42 is the one to take the con.
He has nailed the score.
I will take the assist.
