K5783 was attached to the HMS Leander at the time of the photo. The Leander, a cruiser, was part of the Royal Navy's New Zealand Division and was transferred to the New Zealand navy during World War II. K5783 by then had been lost when it sank in 300 fathoms at Aitutaki on July 15, 1939, after slipping from the crane while being lifted on to the HMS Achilles, a sistership of the Leander.

The F-92 fighter was cancelled and the XF-92A was just a rudimentary smaller test aircraft built for delta wing research. Only this airframe, 46-682, was completed. It was re-engined and painted white in 1951. The photo was clearly taken at Convair in San Diego. The B-36 with 11th Bomb Group markings in the background, 44-92085, was accepted by the USAF in January 1950. Photo from: Rudy Arnold / Smithsonian Institution

He came third in the first world aerobatic championships in Paris in June 1934 and then travelled to America for an aerobatic event at the 1934 National Air Races in Cleveland. Please contact us if you have more detailed information. Another photo shows the reg is D-EPIZ, or possibly D-ERIZ, but EPIZ is a known Fw 44 reg.

41-9141 wears RAF camouflage and fin flash but was diverted to the USAAF. 41-9131 in olive drab flies in the background. These two airframes spent the war with different training units so the photo was likely taken before they were delivered, on 1 May and 25 April 1942, respectively. The removal of the red dot from the US roundel was ordered a few days later on 6 May 1942. Photo by: Rudy Arnold / Smithsonian Institution

The huge XB-15 bomber, designed in 1934 but not flown until 1937, after the smaller B-17. Underpowered and slow, the sole XB-15 served as a transport aircraft during WWII, designated XC-105. This photo was taken near New York: top left is Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, on the right is the Gerritsen Beach neighbourhood and the Gerritsen Inlet Bridge below the tail leads to Floyd Bennett Field.

At first known as the Consolidated 39, the Convair 104 mated a new fuselage to the wings and tail surfaces of the PB4Y-2 Privateer. First flown in April 1944 it was intended for airline and military use. The US Navy cancelled a letter of intent for 253 R2Y aircraft due to 'design deficiencies' but the second of the two airframes built, NX3939, was flown as BuNo 09803 for a while. Both planes were 'scrapped circa 1945'. Photo by: Rudy Arnold / Smithsonian Institution

Floyd Carlson hovering the second Bell 30 inside an armoury in Buffalo. Since Hanna Reitsch had flown an Fw 61 in the Deutschlandhalle, this was merely the 'first indoor flight of a helicopter in the western hemisphere'. The building seems to be the Masten Avenue Armory.

The original XR-1 helicopter, first flown tethered as early as 12 May 1941. The water tower reads General Steel Castings, proof that this is the Platt-LePage factory site in Eddystone. Several American helicopter pioneers were based in Pennsylvania, including Piasecki, and today Boeing's helicopter factory occupies the General Steel Castings site, across the Crum Creek from the Platt-LePage site.
