Hi there Azzaro, has that got a Wooden Prop???
I'm sure it had it's WOW factor in it's day,
but I look at it and think....hmmmm I dunno that I'd want to go up in it :oogle
Thanks for sharing ... Skippy

Interesting old plane nicely captured Azzarro. It almost looks like one of those little cartoon character planes that are usually painted blue with eyes and mouth on the front
Lovely little airplane
This specific airplane is actually in flying condition again: http://www.goldenageair.org/collection/1936aeroncac3.htm

I'm game if Skippy wants to stay on the ground
Funny looking aeroplane that, it was probably slower than the cars of it's time
I wonder if the technology museum in Prague had something similar, I'll have to check my archive
Thanks for commenting pyry........According to the specs it had a speed of 65 MPH. As in air speed, not over the ground. If you find something similar, be sure to post it.........
WHOW !!!!!!! Now there is a plane with character. Wouldn't that be a fun plane to fly....You would need a leather jacket, white silk scarf and goggles.....
THANKS FOR SHARING.....
Brave men in their fabric aeroplanes - that era had a look all it's own
Edit: Here's some additional WOW-factor for you: variants of the HM-14 Flying Flea, which is from the 1930s, are still built and flown today. So you can get your jacket, hat, goggles, scarf - and the matching aeroplane
Fabric covered airplanes are actually not as uncommon as you might think. I've flown several different types of them.
