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.
