    There's a group of photo's circulating through e-mail, which show the camoflaging of Lockheed during WWII. I assume many if not most of you are familiar with these photo's. The last photo in the series I just reviewed, shows what appears to be a 4 engine, low wing, tricycle gear, aircraft with a triple rudder configuration (see photo below). I don't even have a guess what this is, but since I'm not an expert that's no surprise[​IMG].

    Of course, of course. I should have known that. My first commercial flight was on a super G Connie from LaGuardia to San Francisco. My mind was just focussed on this being a WWII photo, so I was trying to make that thing into a bomber. Thanks for the quick response.

    Just to get technical, with all the other AAF aircraft in the hanger, probably a C-69. :lol:
