OK.
It's French.
WWI.
He's in a gunner's position in front of an engine/prop. This is the starboard side.
It's a Trimotor.
Built, flown and crashed.  :)

Those WW1 aviators were crazy. Built, flown and crashed ! LOL
What will they think up next ?!  :D

Every crazy idea was used. Once there was a pilot who used a ships "anchor" so he could fly over the enemy┬┤s
airplane and grab it, or do damage to it  :D and yet another crazy pilot put a cannon on his wood airplane to shoot
at the enemy.

Shame on us, but this bizarre airplane would have been hard enough to find even if we had the full photo.
Anyway, I wonder how the gunners were meant to operate in their position. A moustache trainer and a less formal cap were highly needed I guess  ;D

WOW!  8) That is cool.
You have discovered a most unique aircraft. I like its design.
Sort of "futuristic" and "Buck Rogers spaceship" in style  ;D

You never seize to amaze me. Thanks!

+1
I've never seen that aircraft before.......
From your first photo I thought it might be a nacelle from an airship
In profile they have a dreadnought's prow  8)
A little more elevation on the engines and it could be a flying boat   :D

DNF.... :))



Good choice Graeme

Cheers

It's so silent here suddenly... looks like the quest has stalled.
Time to breathe life into it again.

You are right. Sometimes time is in short supply

I think it is a General Aviation PJ-1 Arcturus

Correct LameHawk, that's one of the many names this kite was sailing under.
It's also known as "Fokker Aircraft Corporation of America FLB" ("flying life boat").

Your turn!
