Produced in Belfast, the Hereford was a variant of the Hampden powered by Napier Dagger engines, as the Hampden's Bristol Pegasus was expected to be in short supply. The Dagger was unreliable and the Hereford was used for training. L6057 was assigned to No 16 OTU at Upper Heyford when it crashed on 8 August 1941, but apparently it was based at Aldergrove in Northern Ireland as it swung into its Ballycassidy River on take-off from the St Angelo satellite airfield at Enniskillen.

The XR-1 Pinwheel in an early form. The two 'armrest' rocket fuel tanks were not always fitted. Probably even earlier, it had a rudder with self-made US Marines titles. It reportedly first flew in April 1954. Testing took place at NAS Los Alamitos (KSLI) according to a Dutch newspaper. It was always intended to reduce the craft to the 'backpack' seen in the other photo.

Stan Hiller in an early HJ-1 helicopter, as proposed for the civilian 'commuter' market. N8170H is said to be the machine preserved at the Hiller Aviation Museum. Two other prototypes hover overhead. Further development led to the military YH-32 and HOE-1. Photo probably taken in 1952.

The YH-32 looks like a Walt Disney design. The US Army received 14 YH-32s from 1954, but all were out of service by late 1957. The US Navy got another three examples with the HOE-1 designation.

Early H-23 helicopter. Place, date and fate of 51-3999 unknown. A batch of one hundred H-23As was delivered to the US Army in 1951. Many were used in Korea, several in Berlin. The H-23A model must have been out of service by 1962 as the designation was not updated with a role prefix.

This was the first S-55 delivered to the US Marines, on 27 April 1951. The US Navy had received construction numbers 55006 through 55015 as HO4S-1 helicopters for evaluation in the anti-submarine warfare role. 127783 to NACA at Langley in March 1953.

Bought by shipbuilder Henry Kaiser in 1943, the Fleetwings company in Bristol, Pennsylvania produced the Kaiser-Fleetwings BTK dive and torpedo bomber and also this two-seat helicopter. The sole example to be flown was tested from a lake in a park in Bristol in 1944 and 1945. Reportedly designed for anti-submarine work from the decks of Liberty cargo ships, the XH-10 was never tested by the military. XH-10 was a company designation, with the name Twirley Bird supposedly also given to the type.

The P-1H was a 1932 variant of the Parks P-1/P-2, reverting to the P-1 designation perhaps because it was an entry-level model with a 100-hp Kinner K-5 radial. Dean Hammond of Ann Arbor, Michigan purchased the rights from the bankrupt Detroit Aircraft holding, and the designation officially changed to Hammond 100 as of January 1933. Seven examples were reportedly built, of which N15771 (c/n 204) was still airworthy in 2022. Photo from: Dan Shumaker collection

The June 1934 American Airlines timetable marketed the company's Condor IIs as 'the world's first complete sleeper-planes'. Overnight flights did not catch on and the AT-32D model was made convertible from 12 berths to 15 seats. The DC-3 started as the Douglas Sleeper Transport, though. Photo by: Charles Phelps Cushin

During the 1955 flood in Yuba City, California, this particular HO4S rescued 138 people in twelve hours. Photo date and location unknown to me. This airframe served in the US Coast Guard from 1953 until 1967, although it should have been marked as an HH-19G after 1962. It is marked as an HO4S-3, without its G suffix for the USCG model. To civil as N17378.

It's cool to find out the location of an old photo. A reverse image search for the church tower gave poor results, but the roof of the building gives the last four letters of the city name. Saarbrücken's first airport was situated in a bend of the River Saar near the church of St Arnual. Wikipedia notes that DLH maintained unprofitable services to the capital of the disputed Saarland for political reasons, and that small planes were therefore used like the He 70G Blitz Buntspecht (spotted woodpecker).

S1595 won the 1931 Schneider Trophy. No foreign competitors made it to Calshot so Britain scored an easy victory. The other S.6B, S1596, broke the absolute world air speed record, reaching 655.7 km/h (407.5 mph).
