The ninth B-17E was fitted with Allison V-1710 inline engines by Lockheed Vega. The resulting XB-38 was faster than the B-17 but its service ceiling was lower. The single XB-38 was lost on its ninth flight on 16 June 1943 when the number 3 engine caught fire and the crew bailed out. Photo from: Nederlands Instituut voor Militaire Historie

The RY-3 was a transport version of the PB4Y Privateer. Like the earlier C-87 / RY-2 Liberator Express, it had surprisingly serious issues and most of the 34 RY-3s built were disposed of to the Royal Air Force, receiving the Liberator C.IX designation but seeing only brief service from February 1945 until April 1946. This airframe, BuNo 90021 which became JT973, was transferred to the RCAF as an ice research aircraft named Rockcliffe Icewagon, surviving the wrecker until 1949. Photo from: US Navy

The R-6 was larger than the earlier Gee Bee racers, but still seems an uncomfortable choice for the 18,000 km London to Melbourne Air Race. Jacqueline Cochran and Wesley Smith Pratt only got as far as Bucharest where they damaged it. Q.E.D. participated in other races but never finished one. In 1938 it was sold to Mexican pilot Francisco Sarabia as XB-AKM and renamed Conquistador del Cielo. After a flight from Mexico City to New York City in 1939, Sarabia crashed at Washington - Bolling Field and drowned in the Potomac. The plane has been restored and is preserved in his home town, Ciudad Lerdo. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum

The second and last example of Howard Hughes' XF-11, first flown by him on 5 April 1947 after he had recovered from crashing the first one. The second aircraft did not have contra-rotating propellers. A long-range reconaissance aircraft, the XF-11 competed against the four-engined Republic XF-12 Rainbow but neither was put in production. The F for photo reconnaissance designation was changed to R in September 1947. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum

First flown on 12 May 1941, the Platt-LePage XR-1 (PL-3) was the first helicopter ordered by the US Army. Laurence LePage studied the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 in Germany. Two examples of the XR-1 were built, this being the modified XR-1A. The larger PL-9 design became the McDonnell XHJD Whirlaway. Frank Piasecki worked at Platt-LePage as a young engineer. The photo comes from the files of the US Army's Watertown Arsenal, Massachusetts. Photo from: National Archives at Boston

Some 56 examples were built of the Northrop BT-1 dive-bomber. Low-speed handling issues and the lack of wing folding made it unsuitable for carrier use.

The US fiscal year-based serial system started in FY 1922. The AS prefix stood for Air Service. The Eberhart Steel Products Company from Buffalo, NY built about 50 SE.5s for the USAAS using British-made parts. Interestingly this airframe, as NC4488, was used in the filming of the war movie Hell's Angels and it survived to become G-BLXT in the UK. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum
