I'm sure everyone can identify this one, I'm just wondering how many board members have seen this one in person. I would guess a very large percentage of the board members have.



Looks like the Wright Flyer?

Definitely a Cessna Bobcat.

I've seen the Wright "B" hanging in the Smithsonian. That's as early as they get, I think.

I noticed that my description of the P-26 "Peashooter" got censored for mentioning where the place where the pilot sits. :lol:

The P-36 "Hawk" replaced the P-26 - it was the predecessor to the P-40 Tomahawk. Looked very similar, except with a radial. All 3 were just about obsolete when they came out, innovation was moving so fast at that time.

The Cessna Bamboo Bomber did not have feathering propellers... and it was a training aircraft... So when one engine shut down.. or was throttled back to simulate an engine failure.. you had significant drag from the windmilling propeller.. Not much 'fun'.. With the windmilling propeller, a high-drag airframe, I doubt that it could maintain altitude on one engine, much less climb... REALLY not much 'fun'.

I think there is one of these in Hamilton Ontario, in the museum at the airport. I also saw on on static display in Vancover Washington last summer.

There was one flying in Cambridge, MD, owned by an FBO there. They were really common in little airports until the mid-1950s, mostly as air taxis. They the spars started to rot from outside tie-downs. A old-timer said he could inspect one with his nose, smelling the punky wood.

This is what you really need:

A great movie line came in this airplane (Mad, Mad, Mad World) when Jim Backus has three Old Fashioneds while flying. He staggers aft to make a fourth at the bar and leaves Buddy Hackett at the controls.

Backus: "I'm going to make an Old Fashioned like dear old Dad did."

Hackett (stuttering): "What if something happens?"

Backus: "What could happen to an Old Fashioned?"

It is a "Lynx", & is expected to begin flying in 2010, according to maker Xcor Aerospace. It is a two-seat rocket ship capable of suborbital flights to altitudes more than 37 miles above the Earth.
