A Rumpler model ?

Wait until SincoTC gets here - he'll bag them all !

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:27

Interesting .... On further research (i.e. searching for Rumpler) my source documents are showing it having the has the same model name as a Rumpler, but the side on view is different and the manufacturer named is different. There are a few aircraft in my source documents that say "similar to Rumpler but...."

So not a Rumpler.

dook 21st Oct 2019 20:27

Rumpler C-VIII maybe.

Posts crossed.

I don't think Rumplers had "names" - just a letter and number.

It might therefore be an AEG.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:38

Definitely not a Rumpler.
Manufacturer founded in 1911.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:43

Yes - Letter/number combination same as a Rumpler.

Not an AEG.

One of the founders of the company was the son of a famous inventor.

dook 21st Oct 2019 20:49

Might well be an AGO.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:56

Yes - it is an AGO C.iv. When I looked up Rumpler, I found their C.iv - which threw me a bit.

I'd never heard of AGO until today, founder - Gustav Otto, son of Nikolaus Otto - the Otto engine.
Company closed by 1928, resurrected by the Nazis in 1933.

Your turn.

dook 21st Oct 2019 21:02

I used to belong to another site doing this sort of thing. Must dig out the reference sites again.

This was your AGO....


dook 22nd Oct 2019 09:24

Good day all.

There have been some strange things built in the past.

This is one of them.


nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 11:55

Rocket powered?

dook 22nd Oct 2019 12:10

Piston engine pusher prop.

"lifting body".

dook 22nd Oct 2019 13:09

Another view...


nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 13:19

Aereon 26....

dook 22nd Oct 2019 13:31

Thar ye go. :ok:

Aeron 26 it is.

May we have another.

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 13:40

Thank you, and here's the next one.


dook 22nd Oct 2019 13:54

I thought it was a Sikorsky but it isn't.

Onwards wearing out my keyboard....

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 14:15

You are correct, it isn't a Sikorsky.

And intended to be filled with helium I believe, so really a dirigible.

dook 22nd Oct 2019 15:46

Only a later enlarged model. That one wasn't.

Haraka 22nd Oct 2019 16:19

Blackburn Kangaroo

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 17:17

Your turn now.

Haraka 22nd Oct 2019 17:58

Sorry guys, out of area for some weeks and also didn't realise the baton had to be passed. If somebody else could pick it up, I promise to rejoin with some rarities from my albums in due course
Haraka sincerely aplogises

India Four Two 23rd Oct 2019 05:58


No need for apologies. Here's a flying machine that I didn't know about until yesterday.


treadigraph 23rd Oct 2019 07:33

Is that the little Mil helicopter from around 1990? MI-34 or something? Remember one at Farnborough.

India Four Two 23rd Oct 2019 07:52

Nyet, treaders! :)

sycamore 23rd Oct 2019 08:34

Looks like the offspring of a 3some ,Bell,Enstrom and Aerospatiale....Chinese...?

Self loading bear 23rd Oct 2019 12:16

A threesome?

dook 23rd Oct 2019 15:59

Need a clew India.

India Four Two 23rd Oct 2019 16:01

It certainly does have features reminiscent of all three manufacturers. The gear looks like it is off a Jet Ranger.

Not Chinese.

India Four Two 23rd Oct 2019 16:02

All right - a clue for dook. You can build one.

PS If you need a clew, go to a sailmaker. ;)

dook 23rd Oct 2019 16:21

No I can't - I don't know from whom to order it.

dook 23rd Oct 2019 16:30

When I looked earlier I was looking for skids and not wheels !

Is it a Hummingbird ?

sycamore 23rd Oct 2019 16:32

DOOK,yer go to the scrappers,and see what you can find,then rearrange into a `pleasing and functional manner`......you can see it`s really kid`s stuff....he drew a pic of a helo,then later said `Mummy and Daddy come and see wot I did....!!

dook 23rd Oct 2019 16:35

Look wot I found:


India Four Two 23rd Oct 2019 16:51

Yes, the Hummingbird. All yours for about $200,000 and a few weekends in the garage! :E

Hummingbird Helicopter

dook has control.

dook 23rd Oct 2019 17:14

Thank you India.


Self loading bear 23rd Oct 2019 19:28
