      Well, maybe — are you sure? Close and not a bad guess…. Isn’t that a four-engine airplane in the photo? Each nascelle carries two engines, a pusher and a puller, so to speak. The pusher engine and prop are visible if you look closely in the shadow under the wing….

        You’re right HW, this is precisely what the Farman 2231 is: A 4 engines plane with two pullers and two pushers.

        Note that its younger brother, the Farman 2234 “Jules Vernes” modified by the French Navy “Aéronavale” was the very first bomber to bomb Berlin in 1939. It bombed the Siemens plant in the suburbs. A fantastic exploit at the time !

    It’s the Aerocentre NC.223.02. It is a four (yes, four) engine plane!
