This turned my attention to AviaQuiz - I use to play, but it just became too difficult.

Apparently it's the Spanish Società Costruzioni Aeronautiche Guidonia AQV.

I'm not even sure if Mel got the name right...

Indeed, that's the one.  ;D
Interesting to see that no one there found it.

The little there is about the rather obscure plane: https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/aqv-and-italian-high-altitude-projects.11932/

Just one thing, it's Italian. Not Spanish.

Your turn, Graeme

Cheers for the link LameHawk - certainly a rare machine.  :)
