Morning Mr. 24050.

I've been looking at an Ilyushin but the cockpit isn't right.

Are we thus looking at a Luftwaffe single seat fighter or that of a non-German nation ?

Cawz I can't find it.

Possibly the Lake Starnberger Arado Ar-66 ? I changed my answer from the Ar.231 as only two were built and were both scrapped.

You have it. It was indeed the Arado Ar 66 recovered from Starnberger See. You have control.

The clock starts when the picture is posted - 15:04 on the 8th Feb. The poster is not supposed to confirm a correct answer until 24 hours have passed (ie 15:04 on the 9th) at which point the winner can post a new challenge or declare OH

We all agree it's not a very good system but that's what the Mods have decreed. It has slowed things down a bit but the standard of the challenges - and the clues - are getting better I think

A Challenge shoild run at least 24hrs before the winner is declared.
MReyn’s challenge ran more than 24 hrs.
You are free to post immediately.
Only if there would be an open house, regulars are requested not to jump in immediately.
(but the time frame on that is tentative)

Pretty basic, so maybe a trainer.

ASI in km/h and VSI in m/sec., so I think European. Either the ASI is very optimistic or it's a fast aeroplane.

I can't make out the configuration but possibly a biplane or high-wing mono.

I don't know what sycamore is implying, The aircraft is not amateur built. The aircraft entered serial production and over 80 examples were produced.

I still don't know what you are talking about. Forgive me, for I am old. Do you have an inkling on what the mystery cockpit is?

I don't understand what he's talking about either.

I did ask previously if it was Polish or Hungarian.
