Tugan LJW7 Gannet: Worthy of its name.

Neat Australian six-seat airliner of the 1930s. Designed by the well-known Lawrence Wackett, the Gannet was the first Australian indigenous design built in series -a modest 8 though. Of classic wooden wings/welded steel-fabric covered fuselage construction, this little aircrafts were operated by both the civilians and the RAAF until just after the end of WW2.

A truly elegant streamlined design, in my humble opinion.
