    Still used by the BBMF pilots to stay current on 'tail draggers' landing on grass.

    I didn't know De Havilland (Ahhhhhh) made the Tucano.

    Well you learn something new every day :)

    I think that's a Chippy.

    Mind you , my Air Rec. skills have been bonk in recent times...

    Especially bad wah from a Crab too. :D

    I still think it's a Chippy looking at the tail , then again , is it the curvature of the lens extending the elevators?

    the wingtips of the black bugger look a bit to rounded to be a Chipmunk

    And it does look very similar to the Tucano's I see buzzing round E Yorks

    Its a Tucano

    The Gloss black paint job gives it away although looking at the tail you can see why PTP thought it was a Chipmunk....... but it isn't :D

    I thought De Havilland's last roll-out was the Comet?

    Weren't these made by the same people who developed the Banderanti?

    I'll vote Tucano as well.

    The paint job isn't necessarily a decent clue anymore, since the BBMF's two Chippys have succumbed to the all-over black training scheme. They have a wide white band on the wings, though, and I'd guess that this would be fairly obvious in plan view.

    P_K, yes - originally developed by EMBRAER, but licence built (at considerably greater cost than simply getting the Brazilians to add the UK-specific features at their factory...) by Shorts.

    Can I take my anorak off now?

    I vote Tucano, often seen on finals for a very sleapy Shropshire aerodrome.
