That aircraft at Walmansthal is a DC-6. It was at Swartkops for years before it was ferried to the plotte.

That's what I was about to venture. The DC-6 has larger more square windows.

Max Holste MH.1521 Broussard? With somewhat truncated landing gear, probably to fit on the plinth...

Need help on this one. Don't have the answer myself. Possibly Egypt 50s or 60s as photo found together with a Egyptian Mig-15, but could be coincidence. Thought Airspeed Oxford, but they all seem to have glass roof :thinking:

Sorry, forgot about this one. Almost sure it is not a Boeing 247. Windows different and I think a lot smaller.

Came across the Cessna T-50, but again windows don't fit.

:thinking:

My guess is that this is one of the many variants of the Avro Anson, used during the 2nd world war as navigation trainers.

They were modified and used as trainers and passenger aircraft post war, and were operated by the Egyptian Air Force.
