    Looks like it doesn't it?

    But no, not a Lysander. When I get a chance tomorrow I'll post a bit more

    That`s the one. And I must say, for a French aircraft it is rather good looking.

    Your controls.

    Finally found it.

    Hirsch-MAéRC H-100.

    I would never have got it without the last clue though. Wouldn't have mattered if you had posted a pic of the whole aircraft.

    No, not altitude. But your ramblings has led you into the ballpark, albeit a very large ballpark.

    Short of posting a picture of the entire aircraft I shall have to rely on textual hints, here`s two:

    It is made of wood.

    It started out in 1954 with two 95 hp Régnier 4-EO four-cylinder air-cooled inverted in-line engines. But after having had a run in with a ditch it was re-engined in 1962 with two 170 hp Lycoming O-360 four-cylinder horizontally-opposed air-cooled engines.

    Cheers,

    Pressurised cabin perchance ? Something to do with altitude work ? And that landing gear. Trailing link often involves heavy landings, although the nose gear seems a bit spindly. Operations at altitude, large flaps etc to combat the thin air?

    Actually, I'm rambling and totally guessing.

    Desolated, Sir, but alas no. But you have earned another peek, behold the nose of the beauty:




    A textual hint; she bears the name of the engineer who designed her, but she was built by a company with a completely different name.

    Cheers,

    Was it used in some kind of instrument calibration ?

    We can't have that, can we young master Whitelegg?

    Let's see if an engine may unbugger you...



    And photography has nothing to do with the purpose of this aircraft, but stability is a clue.


    Cheers,

    Looks like it's designed for slow, very stable manoeuvring. That makes me think of air/ground photography.

    ....and I've seen that tail cone before but I'm buggered if I can remember where !
