a reasonable number of these were built and I think they are still around - it went under a couple of (similar) names - also several versions.

Meyers 200. I am not sure about the warning not to get the feet wet? Leaking windshield?

the reference to wet feet was because chevvron thought it was a seaplane.

But its the Meyers/Air Commander 200 - rather a nice aircraft but it cost quite a bit more than the competition and so had limited success - I think there are 70+ still flying

over to D26

Quite an interesting story regarding the production of the Meyer 200. All virtually hand built, therefore not suitable for an assembly line.

Open House, please!

Now I would have glanced at one and said 'Navion'.

They sold a lot more Navions - cheaper for a start.................. interesting article in a recent edition of Flying comparing the two for those who want to buy a used one

Not a Fokker.
Not Australia.
Possibly Cape Judy Peninsula.

Looks like an autocorrect, Chevvron. Try Cape Juby in Morocco.

Definitely says 'Judy' on my machine, but I never heard of 'Juby' either.

The Latécoère 25 has a match in exhaust pipe.
But corrugated body panels seem not to match.

Think the corrugated parts are part of the radiator/oil coolers...

Tis the 26 - but 25 will do me.
Not a great deal between them and I didn't show you much of the aircraft.
