Can any one please identify this monoplane with a huge curved exhaust.

low wing, single engine aircraft

  • $\begingroup$ I still think OP was mis-identifying the curved roll-over structure as being a gigantic exhaust pipe, with the black material of the cockpit "coaming" (rim) being mistaken for the open end of the pipe! $\endgroup$ Mar 29, 2022 at 0:00

I believe this is a Junkers T29, or something similar. This photo from behind shows that the plane has both a rollbar over the cockpit as well as a separate exhaust pipe that sticks up prominently from the engine. Image Source

    $\begingroup$ Wikipedia says the curved thing is a “longitudinal arch over their heads to protect them like a roll bar” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_T_29 $\endgroup$ Mar 28, 2022 at 16:39

    $\begingroup$ Only two were built. More photos of the Junkers T29 here: www-airwar-ru.translate.goog/enc/other1/… $\endgroup$ Mar 28, 2022 at 16:44

    $\begingroup$ The T29 was also a test platform for the doppelflugel, which is that funky double-wing control surface. Nice catch. $\endgroup$ Mar 28, 2022 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ @MikeSowsun Nice find. This photo appears to be the same as the one in the OP, albeit in better quality $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @DarrelHoffman: It's not hard to imagine an airplane of this configuration nosing over on landing and ending up on its back, especially when used in a training role. $\endgroup$ Mar 29, 2022 at 13:43
