Answering Requests...

JTG asked for more A12 pics (and I've included the inline engined A8 he remembers...) and Master Chief Airdale was whining about Buffaloes...

First up, the A8/12 Shrikes.

More here, here, and here.

Now for them Buffalo... they were popular aircraft for a while.

Here, a Brit, Dutch East Indies, a Finn, like both Bill and JTG mentioned, of course, we flew them, too.

And *at least one* turned coat, however reluctantly.

Of course, the 30's were a time of ferment in the aircraft world... what with Lex's predecessors deciding that landing on the pitching deck of an aircraft carrier in crappy weather was too easy - so they went for the brass ring... or rather, steel ring suspended beneath the belly of an airship.

Not to be outdone, however - here's Bill, as a younger aviator, participating in his signature Flying Rodeo event, Airplane Roping. Tying it off was a real challenge...!
