    While looking some things up for a project I am working on, I came across a page of US Navy Bureau Numbers (BuNo) and stumbled on some interesting stuff:

    Looking through the rest of this list was interesting as there are some one of a kind prototypes during that time frame that I hadn't heard of before. Neat stuff.

    US Navy and US Marine Corps BuNos--Third Series (120342 to 126256)

    Fascinating post.

    It's gut wrenching to see the ones just scrapped.

    What a cool find, Eric!

    I have to agree about the rare birds sent to the scrap heap. Sad to see any pioneering aircraft junked, regardless of it's origins.
