    I think Lindbergh considered his survey of the Orient flight, with Anne, in his modified
    Lockheed Sirius over many barren & uncharted territories to be a much more treacherous flight
    than the Atlantic...

    Nice photo Howard! I have yet to see a build sheet that shows a J3C with an A-65-8F. Maybe it's
    a good question for Clyde Smith, he's got all the data.The earliest mention I see of the
    A-65-8F in TCDS...

    Nice Glenn. Did you wrap and solder them?

    I hear you Glenn. Just sharing information. Haven't read the T. O. in detail, but I don't see
    anything mentioned about the military preference on tail skis.Yea, those Super Cub guys think
    horsepower i...

    Yesterday I received several WW2 era / post-WW2 AN manuals and Technical Orders. Among them is
    Army Air Forces Technical Order No. 01-1-11 dated 1-August-1947 which supercedes the prior T.
    O. dated 15...

    KAP, that looks like a standard L-4A / B greenhouse. The A / B greenhouse was different from
