... that's because it is a modified Emeraude!




A homebuilt CP328 Super Emeraude, first registered in 1990. I spotted it last week at Grande Prairie airport, where I was participating in a SAREX.

Does anyone know if there is a benefit to adding a four-bladed prop to such a low-powered engine?

sycamore has control.

Well deserved!
I looked at this last night - but the cockpit detail kept throwing me off the scent.

Background reminds me of The Great Waldo Pepper and the WW1 filming scenes - any connection? Only German type I recall though was the Triplane and it aint that!

Is that a Stampe in the background?

The white aircraft looks like a fairly modern taildragger.

The terrain could be California or Arizona.

I thought New Zealand and then wallabies and wombats.
De Havilland Tiger Moth in the background.
I think it's a tricycle undercarriage, Simon
Had a look through Eyre's book....

It is a great challenge Noyade
The only guess I can make at the moment is - North American T28 ?

In the unlikely event that T28 is the correct answer - I am afraid it will have to go to OH as I am away from home tomorrow.
