I'm about to be away from the internet for a week, so even if someone gets the answer I won't know about it.

Wikipedia says the Blériot 125 but I don't know whether a design which never flew well enough to be given an airworthiness certificate would count.

Well, if I could work out where the pilot actually sat in that thing …


I'll give you that one, but it means there's another one out there that might pop up some time.

You have control, over.

Payen Pa-22?



That's another one with a single fin and the cockpit built into it. What we're looking for is a twin-finned aircraft with the cockpit between the fins. And 'tis French.

All right, this question is indeed a hard nut to crack. Here's the story: http://www.armouredcarriers.com/-document

Unfortunately I couldn't find any info regarding the faith of the Mike Banyard's Seafire after 'Operation Iceberg'.
