sorry i havnt the faintst idear, i can only conclude that it is a secret ww2 or per war aircraft that probebly would have been used to trandport spies in and out of their destination as it seems to have rather large and long flaps. its job would have been similar to that of the Westland Lysander mk 3 and as it is similar in its design layout i sugest you try reserching the Lysander projects

if you are intested in reserch aircraft like me then i think you should look at www.luft46.com

thank you and post me if you do find out what this intresting monstrosity is.

As the French were using a roundel insignia, going blue, white, red from the centre, it was decided in a spirit of co-operation to adopt the same pattern but reverse the colours. - The Guardian


If it is French, that would explain its odd appearance.

Do you think the cowl is over-long for a spy drop plane? Like it may hold a RR Merlin? Do I see up-pointing exhaust stacks? The tail empennage has very short vertical fins for the rudders. Small to lower air resistance which is no advantage in a spy drop plane. It looks as if the cockpit is located far aft. Note what might be a head-rest behind the wing. In the US in the late 20s the very short fuselage was in vogue. Look at old Thompson Trophy race planes. Held in Cleveland I believe. Now known in an unfriendly way as Rust City. Very interesting.

the more i look at it the more i think it is a fw 190 as fw usualy used ridal engines and not inline engines it is a middle war aircraft and it clearly has a theatre band on it
