The He 111Z "Zwilling" saw some limited operation albeit not as much as intended.

Still, enough to be the correct answer.
Over to you.

Thank you Ironmachine,
Still on the topic of unusual aircraft, on which aircraft were two of it's four props designed to be elevated on an arc of 10 degrees?
Cheers,
Max

Correct. One of my favorite aircraft. The 2 pushers were raised to avoid the spray during takeoff.
Back to you, Sir.

The overall design looks similar to an Avia B-534, but it can't be because the aircraft pictured has a radial engine.
The camo pattern leads me to believe it is an Italian plane, but the CR.42's radial fits differently than this aircraft and looks different, not to mention that the body of the aircraft does not resemble a Falco.

No, it's not an Italian plane. And the place is not in Poland.

Not German, not Italian, not Japanese.
I'll guess Romanian IAR 39. Source: http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aircra ... 582-3.html

Actually, it is an IAR-38, but the planes are similar enough as to be a valid answer.
Over to you.

Thank you,
I can't really tell the difference between 37, 38 and 39.

My question concerns not an Axis but a Co-belligerent aircraft. These Finnish airmen are taking a dip off of what aircraft?
