Nice find as always Hesham!

Pegaz was a postwar motor-glider (designed 1946/1947).

I believe that the powerplant shown is a Gad 495cc horizontally-opposed motorcycle engine.

According to Wiki, "The motor used in “Pegaz” was designed by designer Stanisław Gajecki" (I suspect that they meant Stefan Gajęcki of Gad). Perhaps the M-11 radial was intended for production aircraft?

Mods: Perhaps this thread should be moved to Postwar Aircraft Projects ?
