While we all digest SincoTC's well reasoned post, I'll put something up for consideration, since it's been over 24 hours AND I'm in UTC-7.

That's the one. Not only the prototype, but the only one built. I thought by trimming the Renault 4CV out of the picture, it might have lasted longer!



An interesting aircraft that was designed to carry the SS.10 anti-tank missile, but proved unsatisfactory during trials. Wire-guided missiles launched from a fixed-wing aircraft. What could possibly go wrong? It was subsequently used in ground attack operations in Algeria.

Quemerford has control.

Quemerford has it! The one and only model of the Frabjous Corporation's BiSkiLi! Having lost power on her maiden flight, she alighted with some force into a clothes basket from which she was retrieved and hung out to dry. (Just kidding....)

I think it's the time a C337 went up the back of a Bleriot mid channel...

I myself am more interested in the stories behind the airfields, aircraft, especially if someone has visited or flown it themselves
Slb, I agree. When a challenge of mine has been guessed, I always try to add something of interest that is relevant to the challenge.

Back again. Must stick to the rules.

This aircraft was a glider powered by a motorcycle engine. In 1921 it took part in a competition but did not win anything.

It sure would have been a winning contestant in the Caption competition!
But in grace it loses from the Rohnbuzzard.
I will leave the kill for Quemerford as I found his caption the best.

1921 glider competition
2nd result Budig glider which took part in the famous German Rohn glider competition.
I found that it was only in 1923 that it was fitted with the motorcycle engine.

OH when found to be correct
I hope Quemerford will fill the gap?
