Thank you MReyn.

It's not often a challenge stands for a week.

Hmm, also looks familiar.

My guess is the Otto - Doppeldecker

You're in the right country but this was a monoplane.

Not an Fw - this first flew in 1920.

Would you like a photographic clue ?

Judging by the modern instruments fitted then this aircraft is either a flyable vintage aircraft or it is a replica of it's type.Is it not?

First of all my apologies for the above date - it first flew in 1910

There has been one flying replica but I don't know if it is still airworthy.

The image is from a museum replica.

And a very good guess it is.

Your stage.

Way to go ... only my second cockpit guess !!!! Although your 1910 clue was the give away.

As it happens I do have one lined up - what else is there to do under lock down.

Bugger - I thought this one might be a stayer - Jhieminga has it with Hurel-Dubois HD-34

I'll retreat to the Aerodrome thread

I saw the real thing at La Ferté Alais many years ago, but that strange contraption is hard to forget!

Anyway, on to a new challenge:

The xpdr code suggests US (or at least operated there). Experimental?

Good question, but I’m going to play it safe and say: yes and no.

ea200,

A minor observation. In the Great White North, we also use 1200 as the VFR code. We also use inches of mercury for pressure settings, but we differ from the US in many other respects, including putting leading zeros on runway numbers less than 10.

Yes, I knew that you use 1200 but the code is 1204 which AFAIK is not used in the same way as it is in the US. Quite prepared to accept I might be wrong though. More research needed to
find the cockpit. Maybe tomorrow.

Has this aircraft a French Connection?. The yoke is very similar to that fitted to the Potez 63
