To regret I did not reseach much about the Avro project. Most interesting at all is the project of flying saucer they made and then handed to the US for continuing trials. As well you are close to the museum mentioned maybe you could made one topic about this aircraft.

Merry Christmas :P

armyjunk2,

ISLIP, My home field!! Phenomenal as usual, I've never seen any old shots of ISP. That old side (West side) of the field is where our Alaruses are tied down. I've always loved the classic look of the old round hangars and always wondered the history of them. The Sperry hangar was Garret MX facility for years but is now leased by Excelaire a charter company. When it was time in the 60's for the airport to expand the main (airline) terminal was moved to the south side.

It is amazing in those shots that there is NOTHING surrounding the airport but pine barrens. Now it is densly packed with industrial parks.

Cheers,
Pete

I guess I should go ahead and post these, I will be leaving soon for a little trip to the Philippines and Guam. I will return at the end of the next month. I am looking for prewar Navy built tunnels on Bataan... as Dougie said "I Shall Return."

Remember a right click and save will give you a little info on photograph

Great stuff indeed !

As anybody else noticed the striking resemblance between the Loening 107 Air Yacht and the Republic SeaBee ?

Interesting !

Incredible stuff! Each time you post a new photo montage I think 'well, he'll have a tough time topping this one' but you do!
I also wasn't aware of how innovative and forward looking Leoning really was, most folks I guess just checked him off as a got lucky with one design sort of company. Looking at the 'in work' photos, I see stuff that looks to be as tough as anything designed today and very forward looking and innovative-keep 'em coming!!

Absolutely FANTASTIC! I cannot thank you enough for the several hours of enjoyment I have gotten from looking through these snapshots in time!

Have a great trip to Bataan! On one of my WESTPAC trips in the 70's (it could have been 1977) anyway, I went with a group over to Corregidor and spent time in the Malinta tunnel. There was talk of restoring it as a tourist attraction but that work had not started when I was there. Very fascinating!
