Benny what was the one behind the Avia?

Here's one should be easy- hint its not a Laird

Whatever that is in the post above must be what caused the term sluf to be invented
The tail looks French(maybe Italian?)

BennyLaird: Is that a captured F-80, or something? Wingtip tanks, American style vertical stab.... That framed canopy and the Russian ID number on the nose beat me, though...


PittsLover: That plane is a Stipa Caproni,
designed by Luigi Stipa and built by the Caproni factory in Italy, no? (Tube plane.)

beat by the time zone. Had to get some sleep last night benny kept me up till 2 am.
I was going to say.....
It's the 1930 Laird LC-DC Speedwing Jnr. When this photo was taken it was powered by a 120 hp Ranger inline, subsequently re-engined with a 165 hp Chevrolair D-6, and later still when acquired by airshow pilot Harold Johnson with a Warner Scarab radial and renamed 'Johnson Rocket'. Designer E M 'Matty' Laird (that's him in the cockpit) went on to create the Solution and Super Solution Thompson/Bendix racers.

But now I have to get the books out again.

There's an AIRBUS behind the Hughes racer, and an Yak-23 behind the Me-262.
A pressurized high altitude Do-17.
And the Aviatik ground attack biplane.
