      Mel Reynolds has it right! The aircraft is indeed the Messerschmitt M-01 — aka the M 17. In 1926, Eberhard von Conta and Werner von Langsdorff made a record-setting flight in it over the Alps all the way to Rome, Italy, an amazing achievement for a plane with such a small engine, a two-cylinder Bristol Cherub II.

      Today, the original aircraft hangs in the Aeronautic’s Hall of the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany.

    I think this aircraft was an ANEC monoplane.

    The ANEC 1 and ANEC 1A were single seaters.

    The ANEC 2 was a two seater, so it could be that.
