Pics are nice, but there's no sound in them! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

How old is that bird?

Must have been a great thing! Thanks for the pics (even without the sound).

That one was built by Boeing in 41 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

For the numbers guys this a PT-17 which means it has the Continental R-670-5 engine. The -13 had the Lycoming and the -18 had a Jacobs.
