One of the strange WW1 project- Spad A2. It had a problem with cooling and never get in the number into the service. But there is also one bomber with similar arrangement of the powerplant.

All right- where is candy :))

Here is another one from my collection!
All I can say is that this type was on display on a naval airshow at Kastrup, Denmark in 1927.
The photo was taken at Waalhaven, Rotterdam -The Netherlands when the plane was underway to Denmark.

Its is a French navy seaplane.
Maybe a CAMS, but I do not know which type!

Your unknow sea bird is the Latham 45, briefly used by the French Navy in 1927

I have already considered this earlier, but in the book I have on Lioré et Olivier from Gérard Hartman I cannot find any conclusive answer! The photo in this book shows quite a lot of differences like different bow, different engine installation......
Also the registration 'C°17' cannot be traced!

I still have some doubts with that Latham 45! The photos on Internet that you find with Google do not seem to show the same plane!
This one has a different bow and a different cockpit!
Assume it has two engines in tandem, although this is also not clearly visible!

You maybe talking about the Latham 47 (top of the two images below, the other being a Latham 45)
