You might be sensing a theme here…I found a fantastic stash of photos of our military and general martial type characters recently. Leading up to Memorial Day on May 28th, I thought these would be a great tribute to our American heroes. I have no knowledge of the type of plane shown here or where the photo was taken. Even the pilot remains a mystery. I am guessing at the 1940s or 50s based on the shape and size of the snapshot.
UPDATE: From Iggy, “The Beechcraft Expeditor was designed by Walter Beech as a commercial aircraft in 1936. During WWII it was used as a military transport and as a trainer. It remained in production until 1969.” Thank you!!
