Planes In Production - as at 1956 . . .


Hi Reams,
Well that sucked up some of my time<grin>.

So I found the root directory for all of their Aircraft & Aerospace Yearbooks 1919~1970. Ran through the one for 1919. Fascinating!

Regards,
Tom Charlton

The early versions are interesting.
I enjoyed reading Wilbur Wright's own article regarding developments and flying at Kitty Hawk.

Thanks

Somehow - being too close to the Martin aircraft - I had totally missed this Convair Seaplane. Seems like I only had the Catalina and the SeaDart in my head as a Convair seaplanes...

I have never seen or heard of the Taylorcraft model 20.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylorcraft_Ranch_Wagon

And there were different versions.

(I should turn in my "airport bum" badge)

Hi Jeff,
Nor had I.

Also of note in the Wikipedia entry:
Quote:

The Model 20 was constructed of molded fiberglass over a tubular framework.



No frumpy fabric covering here!

Seen a number of Aeronca and Luscombe four seat “sedans” over the years. Actually got a nice tour of San Diageo last February in a beautifully restored Luscombe sedan.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Hi Randy,
Ya but . . . did you get to ride in the front seat?<g>

My first flight was in a Tri-Pacer. In the back seat dammit with some large girl . . . while her little brother got to ride UP FRONT and actually TOUCH the controls.
And I’ve been like this ever since<g>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton (if only they’d known what a great pilot I was destined to be<g>)

It looks like a smooth-skinned Stinson 108, except for the empennage.

Thanks for finding that gem!

Best,
Andy
