    Not the Heinrich Pursuit. "..the Pursuit was a single-bay, unequal-span biplane..." This is clearly a monoplane. Heinrich supposedly only designed the one plane... any ideas?

    The cowl and two cockpits (seen in the accompanying Bain photo below) makes this the Heinrich Model D.

    TVL 1970, The Ferret and Richard Arthur Norton: Thanks for the additional information on this event and the type of aircraft. We will add some of it to the description when we update.
