Indeed it is. Radio controlled target aircraft from 1939 with a single pilot seat for ferry ops.

You have the controls, Noyade.

No idea, but a crash would result in hundreds of dollars-worth of improvements.

EDIT: And I'm guessing it was underpowered?

It was that good, I think only one built. Perhaps the designer should have reflected on his first-name when the idea struck, and desisted!

Okay.

From what I've read - related to a famous manufacturer that completed 83 design studies, built 39 prototypes and 11 production series, a total of 776 aircraft.
This included 6-engined flying boats.

That's the one - and you named it.

Quemerford named it so it should be his - if ASW 28 wanted the con he would have named it rather than make an allusion.

And as if to prove it, here I am again. Turns out my 'old' laptop has a different login. Lesson learnt & apologies for the confusion

A56 is correct, had I desired control I would have explicitly named the type. Often not in a position to post/moderate a challenge, but always enjoy the chase. P.S. I’m a ‘she’!
