Ahhhh friend Juha, if I cut off the helmet then I'm sure more than just you would have had trouble with this pic. Probably a lot more trouble!! :lol:

Good job. Correct in all accounts.

The plane in question is an unsuccesful (prototype) version of a mass produced (several thousands built) and very well known plane.

What's strange is I couldn't find a pic so I read a lot of web-sites and made an educated guess which turned out to be correct.

Wow!! Who would have thought an education was good for something!! :wink:

Thank you, Juha. That was a good question. :D

Mine:

I am a US submarine (eventually) sunk off Norway.

What was my name when not in USNavy service?

Hint #2

I was built by Simon Lake's Torpedo Boat Company in 1916 but was used between the wars on a scientific voyage. I was extensively modified for this voyage.
