Named Charlene, 42-30177 flew 18 missions with the US 388th Bomb Group in the second half of 1943. In 1944 the old B-17F was given to Free French general Pierre Kœnig whose troops fought bravely at Bir Hakeim in Libya. Kœnig made a tour around the world in it according to a confused report. Retired from the French air force in 1955, it became F-BGSG with the Institut Géographique National (IGN), but was only used as a spares source.

Designed as a transport and 168-passenger airliner for the US Navy and Pan Am, the double-decker Constitution did not progress beyond two prototypes. In 1949, the second aircraft made a recruiting tour of 19 cities, carrying 'Your Navy - Air and Sea' titles. Over half a million people reportedly queued to get inside. The RM tailcode belonged to VR-44 at Alameda. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum

Liquidated in 2019, Aigle Azur dated back to 1946 and acquired TWA's Boeing Stratoliner fleet in 1951. Formerly NC19905, F-BCEV still wears TWA fleet number 400. It appears the picture was taken during the 1955 Paris Air Show. The aircraft left for the Far East a few months later. It mysteriously disappeared over North Vietnam on 18 October 1964.

Clearly an advertising shoot with daisy-fresh 'overnight passengers' disembarking from a TWA 'luxury Sky-Sleeper'. Although the 'widebody' DC-3 was expensively redesigned from the DC-2 as a sleeper plane, it never became popular as such. TWA's DC-3B already had a smaller, convertible sleeper cabin, with fewer upper windows than the original DST. NC17312 was commandeered by the USAAF as a C-84, but returned to TWA in 1943.

Clearly an advertising shoot with daisy-fresh 'overnight passengers' disembarking from a TWA 'luxury Sky-Sleeper'. Although the 'widebody' DC-3 was expensively redesigned from the DC-2 as a sleeper plane, it never became popular as such. TWA's DC-3B already had a smaller, convertible sleeper cabin, with fewer upper windows than the original DST. NC17312 was commandeered by the USAAF as a C-84, but returned to TWA in 1943.

The bizarre XB-51 trijet was only a light bomber, originally designated XA-45. The USAF instead bought the Canberra, also built by Martin as the B-57. This XB-51, the first of two examples built, starred as a 'Gilbert XF-120' in the movie Toward the Unknown. Photo from: National Museum of the US Air Force
