With no new reactions or suggestions posted for 1 day, I think we have to acknowledge our defeat.
I am in contact with the aeroclub in Sisteron. When they might come forward with additional info I will of course let you know.

Sadly I have to declare OH.

Props looked like Warp-drives. Had one on the Rotax 912 powered Merlin GT.

They don't feather, do they? That thing'd flip on it's back like a Liverpool virgin if an engine stopped!

G'day FP.

I'm gonna lock my undercarriage answer in as the Renard Epervier.

In the Marie Celeste Challenge I thought I'd follow the possible Rotax clue - and came up with the list as per the link - after 20 minutes systematically going though I lost the will to live................

You would have been better of looking at Hirth:
Hirth 3701

That list is shorter.
So will lead you faster to nowhere.

The statutory 24 hours having passed, I can now reveal that it took Noyade 28 minutes to identify the Renard Espervier (the 2bis, to be precise).

Over to Noyade to find something between the impossible and the ludicrously obvious, as the last two have evidently been.

The Fokker F-32 fits the bill but not the photo.

General question:
Am I correct that there has never been a Naca cowling developed for aft engines?

you can do a search in the thread.
But in the 3? Years it is running I have never done a search myself and remember only 2 cockpit doubles:
Yours and the Starship.
Edit the name that flying machine thread is running (restarted) also 3 years ago.
I do not recall doubles here.
