Geylang
Hai Khahera
Esterhazy Straße
Boulevarden
Korkeavuorenkatu

OK - I'm pretty sure these are various versions of Monopoly. It's the street that would be Old Kent Road in the British version - the lowest rent on the board.

The versions are:
Gurney Drive - Malaysia
Geylang - Singapore
Hai Khahera - Iraq
Esterhazy Straße - Austria
Boulevarden - Denmark
Korkeavuorenkatu - Finland
Bárugata - Iceland
Kirtimų gatvė - Lithuania
Campo Grande - Portugal
Avda.Libertador - Venezuela :D

Absolutely correct Tony, I carefully picked versions where we didn't have regularly posting forum members ;)

I actually found the answer on a Japanese website. It was a real tough one but great fun. :D

No idea, but how on earth does the pilot see where he is going?

The pilot sits in the open cockpit at the top, the six passengers sit in front of him in the cabin behind the propeller. :?

I see now, I'd missed the seat for the pilot on the top of the plane. I don't fancy any of the seats much :roll:

That should be the Northrop Alpha 2 NC942Y, of the Northrop Aircraft Corporation. Is it :?:
