Also in the P, T and A thread.

Northrop Gamma named "Polar Star". Dents forward of the wing are from a rough landing on ice.


Modified 1930 Lockheed Vega named "Winnie Mae", flown by Wiley Post on record-setting flights in 1931 and 1933 (first to solo around the world).


Turner RT-14 Meteor. It placed third in the 1937 Thompson Trophy race and won in 1938 and 1939.


Modified Grumman F8-F Bearcat racer named "Conquest I". In 1977 it beat the 30-year old speed record for a piston-powered plane at 483 MPH, and won the National Air Races 6 times.


Sharp DR 90 Nemesis racer. It won 45 of 48 races, and had 16 speed records for its class.


X-15 flew in excess of Mach 6.7 or 4,500 MPH.


Ryan NYP named..."Spirit of St Louis". Charles Lindberg flew it across the Atlantic in 1927.


B-29 Super Fortress named..."Enola Gay" which dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan.

I haven't done much aircraft shots in a while, but I recently got a Sigma 400mm F5.6 from one of the members here, so popped out this morning for a few shots:

Boeing F4B-4 (Navy version of the P-12) from the late '20's to mid-30's.


Boeing P-26 Peashooter replaced the F4B-4, and was the first all-metal and first monoplane fighter for the US.


The Peashooter was replaced in the late '30's by the Seversky P-35 (this is the AT-12 version), predecessor of the Republic P-47.
