Boeing Skyfox. Actually a much modified T-33 intended as a more modern trainer to replace the many T-33 trainers in world wide service. Read the wikipedia entry here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_Skyfox

Davis D-1. One of my favorites.

Do you know it's later cousin?

Nope, my pic isn’t a Davis.

Well the Davis emblem on the side of the fuselage would suggest that it is. But otherwise it's a Vulcan American Moth.

Vulcan is what my source says it is. Powered by a 60 hp Detroit Air Cat engine.

It was registered in 1929 as a Davis V-3 serial number 103. The V-3 was the predecessor to the D-1 so it's basically the in-between airplane of the Vulcan and the D-1.

The airplane I posted a picture of is the Doyle Oriole which was the other descendant of the Vulcan.

Hm. That's an interesting caption because Vulcan actually built 8 American Moths. Here's a write up I did on it a while ago. Sadly the restored American Moth was crashed before my era so I never got to see it.

Smoke Stack


Here's yet another plane I spotted at our local airport that has a long tail pipe... does anyone know the purpose of this type of exhaust on a Cessna Caravan? The engine is a P&W... most likely a turbine. I didn't get to see it arrive or depart.

I know that a lot of Caravan pilots complain that the interior always smells like exhaust. Could be an attempt to alleviate that.
