Do a search for XP-67. There's lots of sites. Here's one:

Wow, what a bunch of interesting airplanes!! Interesting, too, to see the same one several times (such as 65 and 69 - Douglas Skyshark, I think), and in some cases see the identifications IN the images.

Paul, #3 is NOT a Stratocruiser, it is a Stratoliner (Boeing model 307), and it is a derivative of the B-17 (Boeing model 299), not a predecessor. The Stratocruiser (model 377) is a B-29 (or B-50?) descendant.

Sorry to quibble, but the 307 is on my MUST do list, and I am so glad to hear that Boeing is going to restore (again) the airplane in the picture (after it's little swim in Elliot Bay earlier this year).

more recognitions ?

Paul,

That 'Amiot' in picture 4 looks suspiciously like something made by Handley Page to me !
The roundels on the 'plane do not look french . . . though I could be wrong.

Picture 6- It was Airspeed that designed and built the A.S.39 Fleet Shadower in 1939.

Picture 8 - That is an Amiot - an Amiot 143, with the wheel covers missing.


Others:

030 - Blackburn Firebrand.
048 - PZL Mielec M-15 Belphegor, a Russian jet-powered crop-duster !
087 - Hawker P 1040.
113 - Latécoère 521, a 12-engined flying boat to rival the Do.X !
120 - The aircraft numbered 0705 is a Let L-200 Morava.
187 - VFW-Fokker 614.

more ?

Keven.

#171 looks like the "flight of the Phoenix" movie composite, made from pieces of a c-119!

#196 and #331 is the republic "Rainbow"

Yes, #279 and 280 are the first 757, with bits and pieces added to it. It was used this way to integrate the F-22 avionics. It's still looking somewhat odd but not this odd.

Some other IDs:

218 (and 217) - Saunders-Roe Princess
231 - A Lockheed P-38 on skis!
165 - also a P-38, but what he's doing that low with one engine feathered and gear up is beyond me!
158-161 Northrop XP-56 (as ID'd in 159 and 160)
149 Northrop N1M
323 Douglas XB-19

THis is too much fun - I gotta get back to work.
