Question time # 113

Chocolate fish # 113 is up for grabs.

All we need to know this round is :-
1: What engine type lurks behind this propellor ?
2: How many engines would you find on this aircraft ?
4: How many passengers sit side by side across the back row ?

3: What aircraft do we have here then ?
5: A likely registration for this flying machine may help sift out the flood of correct answers.


  1. De Havilland DH-90 Dragonfly.

    (cn 7508)


  2. 2× De Havilland Gipsy Major 142 hp

  3. 1.DH Gypsy Queen
    2. One
    4. Two - sometimes more!
    3. Percival Prentice
    4. ZK-DFC

  4. gypsy six
    2 rear pax
    Percival Proctor
    zk dpp

  5. QW : You are incorrect on all counts.

    ZK-CKE : 1,2 & 4 are correct 3 & 5 wrong.

    bobgod : 2, 4 & 3 are correct. 1 is wrong but close & 5 is wrong.

    So you have narrowed it down to just needing a registration.

  6. Ah QW !

    ZK-DJC is not a Percival Proctor.

    No fish for you this week by the looks of things.

  7. After everyone does the hard work I offer my suggestions:
    1. Gipsy Queen
    2. One
    3. Percival Proctor
    4. Two
    5. ZK-AQZ

  8. Welcome aboard Jacob.

    You are 4/5ths of the way there.

    Wrong registration.
    Only about 16 others to pick from.

  9. No bobgod. You are incorrect there also.
    I thought the colour may have given its ID away..

    The answer in fact is ZK-AVW (see new post with pic).

  10. A Percival Proctor did have the registration ZK-DJC, When my P200 was purchaced ZK-DJC had become avaliable

    Sorry but ZK-DJC (first issue) was a Percival P.40 Prentice T1. It was cancelled on 19-05-1998 and is currently in the Wanaka Transport Museum.
