Well is the next bit of research for my site, trying to find out what these two aircraft are.
They, as you can see are very large enlargements from a reconnaissance print take in 1944 flown by the USAAF 7th Photo group, location is unknown, so that makes the task even harder. Well it gives me something to do in the evenings  :))




This is a He 111 with the shape of its shadow due to the sun very low on the horizon...

Hy everybody :-wave
Jicehem, are You sure? :-think To me it looks that engines on photo are longer than nose, and He-111 has a nose going more far in front of engines, that is in fact quite opposite.
What do You say? :-think :) :-wave

Is this a Fw44?
I think the struts are strange. Usually they would come from the middle of the fuselage and the strong struts going into the bottom wing would be only thinner cables.
Might that be a diffrent version I dont know? or a modification for flying in coastal areas with stronger winds?
I hope to get a larger scan of this soon.

I think it could be a Heinkel-72.

hmmm...  :-think Considering the tail construction, shape of fuselage and wheels, centrally positioned push engine, looks like Supermarine Walrus...
Only the missing closed cockpit and the front gunners' gondola pushed back from the stem puts doubts... Is this some Walruses' predecessor?

A friend Mark from UK said:

This is a Fokker B.1 amphibian not a Vickers Viking. I don’t know where the photo was taken. I doubt it was outside the Rolls-Royce plant as the B.1 used a Napier Lion engine which can be seen in the photo.

Will see, too strange for me.

Another one :))



Ah that's a funny picture! It shows an AVRO 504K allright, when it was pulled out of service with the Netherlands Indies Air Corps... On the other side of the fuselage stood "lach maar, ook jij zult oud worden" (laugh, you'll grow older too)

Looks every bit a He.46, surrounded by a Breda 20mm gun, several german SC bombs and variable pitch propellers... Now, when it comes to markings, you can kill me. I'd saiy british trophy of war. But a He-46 in Africa? Another mistery.
