<BR>Is that a Liberty V-12 motor in there?
Yes, it is. 400-hp (298-kW)
<BR>It looks like a variant of the DH.9
Not a de Havilland aircraft.
Only a couple dozen were produced. The original trimotor ones were followed by a twin Liberty aircraft, then a few single engine Liberty aircraft like the one shown.
<BR>Adding "twin" to the search terms didn't make it any easier. Thanks for the clues just the same.
I have to check out for now, but I'm fishing for another one. Is that a pressurized cockpit/open cabin? It's a nice looking plane.
It ended up being a nice air ambulance. I do not think the cabin was pressurized.
<BR>Curtiss Eagle III
(after having every possible clue )
Thanks for playing.
Now YOU have to post one.
Just a shot in the dark here, but i thought I'd ask the experts.
Four planes flew over my home today in formation. Two were yellow, and two were silver and in Air Force livery. They were hauling ass, and running a lot more rpms than the Texans that I often see. The wings on them reminded me of a P-51, but the rear "wing" was mounted high on the vertical fin. Any ideas?
Were they piston or turbo?
Piston. I just saw them for a few seconds. They were flying low. They came by three times, but I only saw them the one time.
Were they T-tail aircraft, or were the rear fins merely high on the tail?
Don't you mean "horizontal stabilizers"?
He's calling them the "rear wing," so I'm avoiding that term.
There's not much out there that fits the description. Did it look like it had a radial or inline engine?
Fixed gear or retractable? Taildragger or tricycle?
Retractable. They might have been what Mudflaps posted. Is that possible?
