I took some shots of this one taking off after the Riverside show and had no idea what it was. After doing a little reading, I found out it is a Commonwealth Winjeel. It is likely the only one in North America. The paint scheme in historically incorrect, from what I understand, but it's still pretty cool that an indigenous Australian plane ends up all the way here in the states.

My favourite RAAF roundel was the blue and white pacific version like in your sig Heinz. The roundel on the Winjeel doesn't look quite right..
Wow, great site!

That Winjeel has been showing up all kinds of places. I snapped off those shots while walking out of the show. It looks unusual and interesting, so I took a few shots. It was at Chino a couple of weeks back. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of it. Now to get in touch with the owner for some air-to-air and maybe an article....
