Name that plane!!!
Gwinn Aerocar. I saw that one at the Garber Facility at the Smithsonian 30 years ago.
Name that plane!
Ok, name this one.
Is this a trick question? looks like the name of the top one is on the landing gear strut. DH Hornet Moth.
After I posted the picture, I noticed the sticker. Next time I’ll come up with something harder.
Don't believe everything you read. Look at this "Curtiss" mailplane....
Still looking for an ID on this one.
First guess would be a Fokker of some kind by looking at the vertical fin and rudder. That’s all I got right now.
Polikarpov Po-2 has a similar shape, but the wing struts are different. Maybe an earlier model...
Something screwy about the rudder in that picture. It looks like a ghost. You can see through it. Looks like the airplane didn't have a rudder when the photo was taken and something was somehow (early attempt at photo shop?)added for a rudder. The shape doesn't fit with the rest of the airplane. Maybe its just water stained but it still looks screwy.
I'm thinking someone tried to airbrush out the background.
I want to say it's a Canadian Jenny with a modified rudder.
We're looking at a digital photograph of a printed photograph. The ghostly line through the vertical stab is actually a reflection on the surface of the print. The print has a kind of mottled glossy finish. You can see the reflection is a square shape, like the reflection of a window or a light panel.
Separate names with a comma.
