    THANKS, NitroBro, BamaJama, Doc, et.al.! Goes to show: If you want to know something, all you have to do is ASK HAMBers!

    (Still wonder what the plane is, though.)
     
  2. I'm glad someone got something out of it, I think Im going to be one of those boring old men that keep's telling the same boring old story, again and again and again...........!

    "Still wonder what the plane is, though", what pic are you asking about?

    My thanks go out to every contributor to this thread.

    Doc.

  5. Oh! Now that was obvious and I completely missed it:rolleyes: maybe I should just go back to sleep!!

    It is a Curtiss Jenny JN-4.
    Here is a couple of pics to compare.

    Yeah, I think that is a Curtiss Jenny. Over 6,800 were built during the war and used mainly as trainers by the Army Air Corps and the Canadian air service. So, thousands were left over after the war for use as barn-stormers and many civil-aviation roles.



    But, jee-whiz, I can't imagine where they got the idea for this famous 1918 stamp! :rolleyes:

    Dramatic shot of two German observation balloons going
    down on the Western Front, February 1918. Allied pilots
    loved balloon-busting. :cool: Photo thanks to vlib.us.
     
  10. I was just flying along nice and slow, strictly on my navigational route and assigned altitude when this tree swerved in front of me...............................

    Not the Matterhorn. This is the original Autopia. Note that you could actually steer the cars, no rails like today's version. I think the cars were cooler then too. We went the first summer it opened in '55 and driving these were a real highlight.
