When he moves the truck we will see a De Havilland DH-4



This is a Curtiss JN-4

Interesting, that pilot could be my 'adopted grandfather' Leo Mellon. He flew the air mail biplanes, used to tell some wild stories about flying. During WWII he was a base commander of a pilot training base. They had to use some pretty old planes too, at the start of the war!

I had the opportunity to buy one of those many years ago. It was converted to a crop duster and used in central Michigan. It ran but was not air-worthy. It was only $500.00. But I was a teenager, living at home, with no place to put it. Oh, well.

Marty, Just think what you could do with it NOW! Flying is a great treat in a Bi Plane!

I would like to claim that I was fooled by the plane being hidden behind the truck... alas I was just a fool! Anyone can plainly see that lower wing is the same length as the upper... not on the Jenny. Looks like another DH-4 in the hanger... rounded bottom on the radiator.

Bill really cool fuel tanker TT.
