    I am utterly clueless, but that's mainly because I can only tell the different between a few planes.

    Don't be swayed by the French markings in that photo. The Bloch is the best guess so far. At least it has a radial engine!

    The Bloch 152 looks like pic #1

    The Morane Saulnier MS 406 has an inline engine Pic#2

    Pic #3 is another shot of it, Port side.

    I'll admit its obscure. But I'm expecting someone around here will get it.

    A virtual bottle of beer to the guy who can name it first.:lol:

    Will.

    Congratulations to FlyboyJ and Grandpa.

    Half a bottle of virtual beer to each of you!

    The Fokker DXXI was a close guess though. They are both Dutch.

    I'll have to find something even more obscure now.

    Will.

    That's not the American thing, that's the British thing. The American thing is to let them steal the bottle, then blow the hell out of them for doing it.
