Yes, it is a German-built aircraft. If you want to take the easy way, fine.

Many thanks, but I won't. I stumbled on it from the image 'properties' unintentionally. With luck someone will get to it the hard way.

@ Evansb,


The photo in post #152 is indeed from a Martin B-10.

Something along the lines of the DH50 cabin biplane?

Didn't look deep enough did I?
DH83 Fox Moth (only 6 survivors from 154)

If correct it's going to be OH I'm afraid.

Is that a big round hole in the instrument panel so the Captain can stick his head into the passenger compartment and make his PA?
(Yeah. I know that looks like the end of a Gosport tube just to the right, but I like my way better).

Another chance missed by UK?
No. The Rotodyne was diabolically noisy. It would never have been allowed to operate from city centres.

Certainly WWII, not particularly liked by its pilots; underpowered and gained an unhappy nickname later on.

Not American, I'm afraid, although it's possible the subject aircraft came up against some cold Buffalo
