My first camera was an Argus C3 given to me by my Uncle. Became interested and over the intervening years I have done photography and stopped, only to start again. Have begun again in the last 4 years with Canon Digital Point and Shoots. I have no training in the arts or photography. I have read some of Ansel Adam’s series, never finished.. I have learned a lot from seeing the fantastic images here.

    They certainly dont build them like they used to! nice image!

  • No, they don’t. IIRC it is the first low wing all metal plane built for US military.
    Great museum near Disney World. Thanks

    Yes Glenn, I have some shots of this one as well, it is a Ryan Pt-22. They have one at the Pima Air Museum in Arizona. I was fortunate enough to see it when I was there in 1982, while driving semi truck cross country. Bob :)

  • Yeh, that the one. Came with or without spats. Inline engine version also IIRC. That Pima museum must be fantastic!

    Yep, that’s the one, the inline looks cool, but I really like this radial verssion. If you’ve never seen the museum and you are passing through Arizona, it’s not far off the highway and well worth the visit. In 1982 I purchased a brass belt buckle there with a B-17G on it, out of hundreds of other cool looking buckles that they have, I chose just that one and later in my life, I was told by a Berkley Science Institute Phsycic Reader, that I was at one time a 6’ tall, female shuttle pilot, lost at sea on a return to the States flight. Other things like that have happened in my life and if that is true, it would explain the joints and muscles problems I have today. Who knows if it’s true. Bob :)

    Doubt I’ll get that way for a while. If you ever get Florida way there, are a number of good Aviation museums and private collections. Well let me know if you ever get real confirmation of the readings, findings [-))

    Don’t know what it is Glenn but I like it – I love early planes, not the modern jets. Great shot !

  • Hey Roy, I love most all of them. That was correctly identified by Smokeydogsocks as a Ryan Pt-22. First single low wing monocoque structured plane purchased by the US military. Those were the days. She is a real beaut!
