  1. Looks similar to what my dad told me he did during WWII. Being 4F (bad ears/poor hearing), he and one of his buddies worked at the GM Truck/Bus plant in Pontiac MI, putting the "pioneer" tools (shovels, rakes, pick-axes, etc.) and other items in boxes then loading 'em into the truck beds and driving the trucks out to the holding yard until loaded on train flatcars for shipment.

  3. About 1919 - this looks like it might be British? Or maybe Canadian? But maybe not:

  8. This first one is the Boeing Y1B-17A one of the prototypes, by the first production models the nose had changed considerably, gone was both the small 'bubble turret' and the distinct cut-a-way for bomb aiming was gone too.

    Not 100% on this second one but it is either a later XB17 (They built quite a few for displays etc) or an early 'A'Model, although the engines as well were used more on the X builds and few found there way onto the 'A's.
    You are spot on with the tail, pre-dates the fillet of latter models. Interestingly it was a little overkill, it also solved a little issue with the tails parting company with the rest of the aircraft!!

    Can anyone name this one??

    EDIT- Those P-40s are Kittyhawks, beyond that I don't know.
    (Wheres Red Forman), I half expect a slap over the back of my head and a - "Dumbass!".

    Looks like these are both Y1B-17A models. Both have the odd wedge cut bombardier's sight window and the early style nose turret. The long intake scoops and 4 section windshields also I.D. these as the second run prototypes. The first picture must date to mid 1937 or as late as April 1938 and might be airframe # 37-369 (the 14th built by Boeing) that was kept for ground strength testing. It was not delivered to the Army until Jan. 31st 1939.

    Second could have been taken between March and August of 1937 When the first 12 (of the original 13 Y1B-17s ordered) were delivered to Langley Field for operational development and flight testing...or after testing was complete in 1939-40 and they were designated B-17 and B-17A.

    A Gene Winfield creation. I think he built two different ones of these during the time period my brother worked for him.

    This is actually a P-40E Warhawk from the USAAF 11th Pursuit Squadron known as the "Aleutian Tigers". The 11th was commanded by Claire Chennault's son Maj. John Chennault. They fought the Japanese in the Aleutian Islands campaign in '42-'43.

    Oooh! The CAC Woomera. That is a rare bird. P-40s were known as Warhawks, Tomahawks or Kittyhawks depending on the model and/or the country flying them.

    Cheers,
