Ummmhhhh....I don´t think PZL P.11. The wing and other characteristics seems different...

PZL would have a radial engine, does more look like air-cooled inline engine.
Perhaps something of german or italian origin

Prewar Magni Jona J-6 prototype - registration I-BONZ.
Probably owned/flown by Leonardo Bonzi at the time of photo was taken.

Hi,

I'm new in this forum.
My grand-father used to be an artilleryman from 1926 to 1946 and I'd like you to help me with one of his pictures.

Does anyone know which plane we can see on this pic ? (obviously the tail is broken)

Hi!

Maybe a Bücker Bü 181?

Hello rouf and grassi, I too think this is a Bücker Bü 181 Bestmann. See tail and front and compare details.

I didn't manage to read the id of the plane (maybe .P+S. on the fuselage ? R+P below the wing ?)
It would be helpful to understand the date and the place where the picture was taken.

It seems that after march 1945 the BU 181 were converted from trainers to "tank busters".
I guess we can see something on the middle of the wing. Can it be a mount for a grenade launcher or a bomb ?
If so this picture may have been taken at the end of the war.

Dear rouf,

I am not an expert at all, but the "something" under the wing might be a damage.
There also seems to be an inscription between motor and cockpit.

You should also focus on the uniforms of both soldiers. I don't think that they are of german origin.
And - maybe you can carefully tear the foto out of the album - maybe you find more details written on the back side.

From time to time in a lucky incidence some shows up on AHF and presents a picture of the same plane or vehicle taken from a different angle.

Best regards

At left, seems to be the uniform of a French officer

Hello again Rouf. Found this list of german aircraft registration codes. Might help in your search. Go down to RP+S? (Which must be the reg. on your photo) and you’ll find a few possible Bü 181‘s.
