    Gwinn Aerocar. I saw that one at the Garber Facility at the Smithsonian 30 years ago.

    After I posted the picture, I noticed the sticker. Next time I’ll come up with something harder.

    First guess would be a Fokker of some kind by looking at the vertical fin and rudder. That’s all I got right now.

    Polikarpov Po-2 has a similar shape, but the wing struts are different. Maybe an earlier model...

    Something screwy about the rudder in that picture. It looks like a ghost. You can see through it. Looks like the airplane didn't have a rudder when the photo was taken and something was somehow (early attempt at photo shop?)added for a rudder. The shape doesn't fit with the rest of the airplane. Maybe its just water stained but it still looks screwy.

    I'm thinking someone tried to airbrush out the background.

    I want to say it's a Canadian Jenny with a modified rudder.

    We're looking at a digital photograph of a printed photograph. The ghostly line through the vertical stab is actually a reflection on the surface of the print. The print has a kind of mottled glossy finish. You can see the reflection is a square shape, like the reflection of a window or a light panel.
