But, it would seem, without toe brakes. Is that a clue for anyone? It doesn't ring a bell for me.

EDIT - Helicopter? Glider?

Warbird...no. Although thats not to say that this aircraft has not seen a fair old bit of action.

EDIT - Helicopter? Glider?

Nope and Nope.

hmm.. ok, so vintage...but not a warbird... that is if you classify a warbird only as a fighter...

would we be seeing the rudder area of a British designed and built aircraft?

My definition of warbird is any aircraft that has seen conflict action. So the Panavia Tornado, Avro Vulcan, Supermarine Spitfire, Avro Lancaster.

Vintage yes. Warbird no. :yes:

Nope. This one is not one of ours.

I don't have a guess yet...

I think I see a wood flight deck...

That crook in the stick or control column is odd, but the perspective is hard to make out.

I have the sense that we're seeing the copilot's left rudder pedal and the pilot's right, but not sure. If so,

is there a similar crooked control column out of the shot on the far left for the pilot's station?

Could the apparent lack of toe brakes indicate a flying boat? Now there's a thought.

EDIT - Is it a Grumman Goose?

i too an thinking this could be something along the lines of a flying boat.. maybe an amphibious craft...

i'm thinking maybe DeHavilland of Canada... possibly the DHC-3 Beaver?

Not a DHC-3 and not a Goose. I can see this is not going in the right direction, so here is another shot.

Few more clues in this one.

Martyn,

I don't know what it is, but it looks like you're running the boost too high.... :mrhappy:

Have some pity on those poor engines. :wink:

Convair 440, I think.

It seems to be a twin-engine propliner, modern enough to have air conditioning and the parent

company is in California. There are other possibilities, including a couple of earlier Convairs.

Nope, not the Convair 440. I'm thinking this may be too hard!

but it looks like you're running the boost too high

This shot was taken after slewing up and whacking on full throttle. I was at work so couldnt really take a leisure flight(unfortunately).

Mutley, if you get any better at screenshots I may have to kill you. (Page one)

Sorry but that sort of ability is reserved for the gods only.

1 - its a twin turbo-prop

2 - it has air con.

3 - its Parent company is in California

as for the aircraft, i havent a clue, but im sure others can suggest possibles...Martyn, any clues for us lesser mortals mate?
