US West Coast props 1984

I'm off to the west coast USA next week so today I thought I'd do some slide copying from the last time I was there, 34 years ago!. A bit grainy but thought the types were worth posting. The second ariel shot makes an interesting ID exercise.

The B-23 is on display at McChord now. I'm sure st24 and I saw the first Martin 4-0-4 in 1997 when it was the last of its type flying, but I can't remember where it was :dizzy:

Great stuff, post more if there are any, love this sort of nostalgia.

I found an online picture of N636X taken at Grand Cantouon in 2015, looking very smart
