As a hint, there is a pristine example collecting dust in a museum.

High performance retractable single, aero's, "G" meter. 400+ knots.
Feathered Prop. PT6? Not enough engine controls though.
1970/80s instruments and radios.
Looks like British cars outside.
Hangar, Cranfield?

I think the ASI is kph.....not a PT-6,and it looks like a second `condition/proplever is to left of throttle on centre console.
Can`t comment about cars or Cranfield,but it may be,if it was at F`boro....

I think this must be a European military trainer.

I have flown the tandem sear PC9, which only had single-lever control as per a jet, with no condition control.

I am wondering if it's Italian. Onwards...….

I'm baffled.

The full title in the Wiki article is Aermacchi M-290 TP Redigo, originally a Valmet design named Valmet L-90 TP Redigo.

I accept that Wiki is not reliable but something is wrong here.

I guess the Valmet L-90 TP is what Sycamore was looking for.

As we`re nearly there,it is the Valmet L-90 TP,OH-VTP,one of the 2 prototypes.All` Redigos` were produced by Valmet,and none by Aermacchi,as when they bought the production rights,the world was looking at tandem turboprop/jet trainers ,ie Tincans,PC-9/21,Texan 2,and not side-by-side trainers.....
On balance `dook` has the keys......as mentioned in #1536

Not PT6 then, but Allison 250B17. I played with those on the first turbine Islander.

Dixie,there is a photo of an American reg.Redigo with a 5 blader,so that will probably be a PT6 or a Walter...
