The biplane I am looking for is agricultural and used in the Soviet Union.
Yet the one I mean has something very unique, at least for a biplane.

Is it the PZL M-15 Belphegor. A jet turbine powered biplane? It was the slowest jet powered aircraft at 200 km/h

This was the flight of the Aerial Experiment Association "Red Wing" designed by Thomas Selfridge. The AEA was headed by Alexander Graham Bell.

The successor to the "Red Wing" was the AEA "White Wing" which featured ailerons.
Phew!

Cheers

Since no one seems to want to jump in I will give it a try. Was the aircraft Mosquito B.IVs and Mosquito PR.XVIs. They were ferried from Liverpool to Victoria Australia.

Tropical humidity and heat, which played havoc with the plywood wings and monocoque fuselage.

Ok, I'll give it a shot, keeping with the twin engine theme:

What was the most numerous twin engine heavy bomber in the US Army Air Corps at the start of WWII? This might be a little too easy-- so be sure to add two of its many accomplishments.

Bump on this--- to difficult? Ok I'll add a clue--- the design competition of 1935 considered it a heavy bomber at the time, but it wouldn't fit the later WWII definition set by a famous competitor. It was also considered the best value, fuel consumption being one of the factors. And as I mentioned before, it served in greater numbers than any other USAAC bomber at the start of WWII.

At a guess the B-25 famed for the Dolittle raid and assisting in the re-supply of the besieged troops in Imphal.

Mike-- nope not the B-25, which would be a later type of aircraft--and named from the get-go as a medium bomber-- but there are similarities.

Darrell-- Bingo! That's the one. With 340 in service before WWII, but can you name two things it's famous for?
