Driving on the M40 recently just south of Banbury, England, I saw a distinctive smallish plane I'm trying to identify — probably military from the dull grey/green color.
It looked a lot like the Islander, but:
- It had a tailplane and twin fins
- The tail boom was narrower in proportion to the body
, and more distinct from the body than the Islander's is(I think I'm misremembering or mis-saw that part — I was driving on the motorway, after all)
- The body may well have been a bit bulkier (or that may have been an illusion caused by the narrowness of the tail boom)
- The wings had a normal-looking span for the size of the aircraft but were shorter front-to-back than seemed normal (to my very-much-not-expert eye)
Like the Islander it was a twin prop with a fairly pointy nose.
Does anyone have any idea what it was?
