I see two people in the cockpit and some more searching to be had.

There does not appear to be any engines on the wings ? could this be a pusher design with the engine at the back.

Congratulations Gordon!

I found the Hawker Hector but never made the connection. Congrats on a fine What is it.

Well Mark I have to say that was a corker of a quiz and got our grey matter working,I actually considered the Hotspur last night but did not know of the earlier canopy,the windows threw me as the looked too high for an airliner,also the lack of engines on the wings,things like that.

Next one please !

Barry.
