Thankfully too disturbingly ugly to publish!

Pypard is correct - the Lancashire Prospector - and it was cropped as otherwise it would have lasted an even shorter time than it did

Not a Macchi.
Six of these machines served with the US Coast Guard.

Thank you Noyade, It's a black and white image, but is it lurid green in reality?

The Viking OO-1, which is a licence built version of the French FBA type 17.

Correct: I was surprised that this type dates from 1931! I would assume it to be more of a post-WW1 type, but not by more than a decade. Over to you

Thank you, Pypard. I have to say Noyade did most of the heavy lifting on this one.
His clue made it lot easier.
On with the next one.

Well, the goat misled me as to the appropriate continent, but now I have Good News about the aircraft.

Also, I discover the type has a website dedicated to its history, and the website itself is now a historical artifact. Remember 1992 when putting up a web page was colourful fun?

I was surprised to see that approximately 50% of the production run still survive; one in a museum.

Designed for the same role this amazing guy does? Missionary Bush Pilot
Not that I approve 100% of the influence of missionaries, but there is a lot more than bible-bashing going on here...
