Pete provided us with a mystery plane. Can anyone ID it?

Lou,
         The name escapes me at the moment . It is either Romanian,czech or Yugoslavian early on in World War 2. I have a mental picture of it in German markings outside a hangar.
          Will continue the search.
          Cheers

Gordon

Lou,
       
       My memory's OK but I should have been a bit further north.
       I'll say its a Irbitis VEF I-16  from Latvia.
       Single seat lightweight fighter of wooden construction.Only one built.
       
       Cheers
       Gordon.
