    Curtiss Condor.

    Type: transport biplane.

    Wingspan: 24,5 m, Lenght 15 m Weight loaded 19,000 kg.

    Engine: 2 x Wright Cyclone 975 hp.

    Very rare but useful aircraft, the navy was delighted by the short take off and heavy payload , 4 were bought in 1938. The last biplanes of this type made by curtiss went to Argentina.

    Cool pics. I sure would hate to be in any of those planes and see a Bf-109 on my six.

    The only known B-10 to still be intact is at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. The aircraft on display is painted as a B-10 used in the 1934 Alaskan Flight. It was an export version sold to Argentina in 1938 and donated by the Government of Argentina to the U.S. Government for display in the museum in 1970. It was restored by the 96th Maintenance Squadron (Mobile), Air Force Reserve, at Kelly Air Force Base, Texas, in 1973-1976. [12]

    Kinda odd they only bought 12. While I realize the Argintine Navy was not big, those Corsairs tended to get used up. And after the war I have to believe they were fairly cheap.
