Great stuff!
A lot of people forget that Sikorsky started in New York and Long Island before coming to Connecticut.

Unless I miss my guess, Picture Number Six in the Sikorsky photos looks like a basic Curtiss JN-4 Jenny fueselage with a cantilivered parasol wing attached. What was the designation and does anyone know if they produced more that one? Did Sikorsky actually build that aircraft?
Thanks.
Jerry

Well, we are at the end of the line. We have posted 2050 photographs, I have another 8000 here but I'm not sure about how to figure out whats been posted. The early posts were done one pic at a time, later I was shown how to bulk post pics. I might as time goes on go back and sort though the early ones. I hope everyopne has enjoyed these............

Very enjoyable AJ, thanks for your hard work.

I'm not sure how you can figure out what's not been posted; have you used the same names throughout? Are the other scanned with the same names? If there in a digital format, it might be possible to run a match somehow.

I am astounded at the variety and quality of the pics you posted. just spent better part of my day reading and looking from beginning to the end, (at least for now I hope:) On a more personal note in SUFFORK COUNTY AIR FORCE BASE #3 is a F-86H and if I remember right it was #31383? or close to it, the H model our museum has is # 31328 VERY VERY close. Thanks again AJ keep it up and I am sure if you post a few duplicates NOBODY would care. Fantastic job.
JOHN

Well I'm back, we have 51 photographs of the Grumman FF-1, we posted 9 so we have 42 more we can post. My question is this, has this gotten to be too much? Do we want more detail?
I think we have about 8000 more photographs, many are buildings and people making airplane parts, usually nothing that I have any idea what it is, just things........
