Yes - artwork depicting Howard Hughes crashing the S4 Scout during filming of Hell's Angels. He survived with a fractured skull.

Chevron has it. You have control.
Kamov A7 Fighting Gyroplane. The rear gunner must have had to be very careful where he pointed the weapons!

If someone said s/he knows the answer , but won't tell, then I'll be shy to contribute my guess, I may be wrong compared to the other poster.
Wouldn't it be better, not to post at all that you know the answer?

Washoutt: I only said that because I've had some other successes recently but having said that, the follow - up picture is not the aircraft I was referring to.

Based on the tail and looking through silhouettes - possibly the Yugoslav KB-6 Matajur?

(NB Nearly stol has noted his/her contribution is on the wrong thread - it should have been on WhatCockpit)

24 hours has passed and I confirm Noyade has it correct Yugoslav KB-6 Mataju - quite a lot built - also known as the LIBIS

The aircraft design office of LIBIS brought together teachers and students of the Ljubljana technical high school in modern Slovenia . The design office designed the KB-6 Matajur which was a two-seat light trainer and tourer that first flew on 4 June 1952. The KB-6 was a cantilever low-wing monoplane with fixed tailwheel landing gear and an enclosed cockpit with side-by-side seating and dual controls. The aircraft was produced for use in aero-clubs until the mid-1960s.
