It seems no-one can find this plane. It's a danish KZ X made in 1951.

LOL, you guys! After a hint from Gil in the chatroom, actually confirming one of the companies I'd thought of then I found the good looking airplane he posted, can't someone find it?

Frank
íConfounded!!! Can't find it, mate. ::complaining: Only this Churchill personal british contraption gets in the way...
...ach so!!! ::banghead::

One more step before the strippers and beer dousing. Have to name it!

BEER DOUSING AND STRIPPERS FOR THE DON!!! (and anyone else who wants to join us!) ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::bow:: ::bow:: ::bow:: ::bow:: 

Indeed the Avro York. The wings and tail planes are the same which were built for the Lancaster, but attached to a different (obviously) fuselage.

Well now... both Gil and Frank get half the credit :)

This is going to be hard.
I am not sure if it fits under the regulations, but hey we aint FAA here :)

Hmmm, if it's a Bristol 130 "Bombay" and my books aren't lying, your crew has to get another aircraft, since their current one has a service ceiling of only 25,000ft.

All right this one's a tough one to call now. I've looked both at the Bristol Bombay, which it does match and I downloaded the Handley Page Harrow. I'm not sure it is, as they both look the same!! I'll have to get another one, that's a tough call.

I notice some discrimination towards rotary wing aircraft: |:)\ and since I am genuinly ignorant on the theme, would someone name that? ::type::

Must belong to some kind of very strict speed control! ::complaining:

I believe that's an APACHE Attack Helicopter. Looks like it means business!!! ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo::

Alrighty, my next pic is a two parter. First of all you have to identify the aircraft, and second of all, what this particular one is most famous for. Double the beer and double the strippers if you get them both!

Looks like a Vickers Vimmy, maybe the one trying to cross the Atlantic before Lindberg? ::thinking:: maybe Amundsen north pole expedition?

DonYan in doubt

BEER DOUSING AND STRIPPERS X2 FOR THE DON!!! Yes it is a Vickers Vimy, and Yes it was the one which flew across the Atlantic. This picture taken shortly after a heavy landing in a bog after the transatlantic flight. The aircraft is now preserved at the Museum of Science and Technology in Jolly ol' England, available for viewing at tea-time. Which is not surprising, cause it's always tea-time in England.

I thought this one might be easy. Hmmm I'm gonna have to find a harder one.
