I can see that it's Dutch but I have never seen this A/C before. I realize there were lots of different A/C in the european countries before the war but this one has me stumped. Anyone have some Data on this?

Aufklarung,
It`s a Curtiss-Wright CW-21. Note the code of the plane.
More info for example:

No worrys, chum. I didn't notice. Thank you for the info and corrected link. Seems like a good idea, a light interceptor that could outclimb it's enemies. Musta had a bitchin' rate of climb. Not that good without armour tho'.

Thanx for the data. A buddy and I send this kinda pic back and forth to test one another.

Regards
A :D
