It is indeed the Boeing Model 15/PW-9. The first Boeing fighter to be operated by the US Army Air Service. It used a 440 hp Curtiss D-12 engine. I'm not sure that the SDASM image was taken on the same day as the background is not the same, and I did not edit the photo I posted. It does not show a registration or any marking on the vertical tail.

longer ron takes the points, but has declared open house.

That's the one, the Type T replica at Châtellerault in 2016. Your turn, sir.

Quick one from an old photo, this shouldn't be too difficult...

A pretty biplane. I feel I should recognise it. But I don't.

It reminds me of a Stampe, but the unequal span and the widened gear attachment are not correct for those types.

Not Europe or USA

The nearest I can see is a Kawasaki KI-10, although the engine fairing appears slightly different.
The rigging and undercarriage are similar.

By a shameful process of searching through Wikipedia categories, I discover that it is the Brazilian Muniz M-9.
I have nothing of obscurity even approaching current levels, so Open House, please.

Nothing to be ashamed about, I did the same by looking up all the Gipsy engine applications, then moving to other similar engines, but never checked the Gipsy Six (not that I would have found it that way...).

Well, I did come first to the Muniz M-7, and thought that perhaps the M-9 would not be worth pursuing, but I noticed it had been re-engined with a six cylinder engine. So there's that.

I find after all that I do have something obscure, though not perhaps hard to find.
