    Yep ... I agree. :thumbright: I thought exactly the same but was a little bit misled by the engine nacelle.

    I have a thing for ugly bombers - lol

    The 3rd one looks so familiar to me but I cannot place it.

    My guess, and it's only a guess, is that the mystery Bi-Plane bomber is a Farman product.

    You can see the lineage of the FBA in "White 11", but I didn't see any of them that fit. Quite puzzling.

    White 11 is a Supermarine Walrus derivative either built on license or highly modified. The wing, rigging, engine mount and engine are exactly the same, while the forward fuselage above the waterline has significant modifications to the cockpit and aft cabin . Anybody else able to narrow it down further?

    here's another one - some sort of prototype I'd imagine. I suspected the CAO 700...but that's got a big round nose and four engines....The forum moderator over at the French 'Aeroforums' said, no, I'm not telling what it is while the auction is still on-going. Personally I don't see the point in that, its obviously a rare type - I haven't got a clue what it is ..anyone ? ..please ?

    It's a SNCAC 150, prototype of a high altitude bomber, destroyed when France was invaded
