    But what is this!? A prototype probably - but a prototype of what? Fighter, assault, recon, a civil one?

    It is the Canadian Car Foundry Gregor FDB-1 fighter dive bomber,
    built and photographed at Fort William, Ontario, Canada in 1938,
    believed to be on the occasion of its first roll out for engine runs.

    Have just seen lesofprimus' smart remark regarding the CanCar Gregor FDB-1. The photo which was shown by Gabby, with a request for information, shows the Gregor on the occasion of it "roll-out" at Bishop's Field, Fort William, Ont.(now Thunder Bay), on 17 Dec.,1938. It is an official CanCar photo, but has been heavily retouched from the original, eliminating its registration letters CF-BMB, and the CanCar caption at the bottom of the photo. The man in the cockpit is George Adye, a CanCar employed pilot, who eventually was the first pilot to fly the Gregor. After CanCar started producing Hawker Hurricanes at Fort William, and had failed to find any potential customer for the aircraft, it was crated and stored in a building close to Montreal's old Cartierville Airport, and was subsequently destroyed when the building burnt down circa 1942. Its registration was eventually canceled in 1950.It certainly never got to China, and this story may involve a mis-identification with a Chinese operated Russian design, the Polikarpov I-153 Chaika (Seagull) (ref.:
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polikarpov_I-153> which was used by China. Jonathan Kirton
