I've just realised I have seen it before somewhere, and I no longer think it's a powered glider.

I think you're right.
How come you've become New Here on 1 post having joined two years ago and posted several times today, let alone the previous years?

Macchi MB.320.

Apparently written off in 1962. Assume that's Nairobi Wilson. Edit: yep! One of three supplied to East African Airways.

Welcome to the thread

I believe your challenge is the Stabilimento Costruzioni Aeronautiche (SCA) SS.2 Light aircraft ??
