Control yokes put me in mind of the Avro Anson

Are those seats made from whicker?

Not of British manufacture. Seat backs are of leather and folded flat, possibly on wicker seat bottoms.

Not French, but there is a direct connection with cake baking and the mystery aircraft. Yes, baking cakes.

Wow! What an amazing source of historical factoids this forum provides.

Not a Norseman. The mystery aircraft is not Canadian.

Note the bulkhead and braces. It is a robust airframe. The "cake baker" is now known for frozen pizza.

Yes, the aircraft, the Hopfner HA.11/33 was built to Dr. Oetker's specifications. Only one was built, eventually taken over by the Luftwaffe.


Open house.

Just a bit too easy when the photographers name is watermarked on the photo, as well as having the aircraft identification in the image data.
The more sadistic of us on this forum crop and do other sneaky things to prevent the original photo being easily found on the web.
The photographer has a great website with lots of good photos and information about this aircraft, though.
I found it well worth visiting.
Junkers Ju 388
Thanks.

Terry,

Nicely put. I used to get a bit hot under the collar during googleimagegate, but in this case I think the cockpit was such an easy spot that the watermark was just a bonus.

OPEN HOUSE, subject to hangarrat's formal confirmation. (I may have something to post but certainly won't have time until this evening at the earliest, to do the necessary obfuscation).

The GPS is of course not an original fitment.

aerobelly,

Interesting.

An American single but registered in Europe? Tandem two-seater? Constant speed prop?
