A line-up of factory fresh T-34Cs during acceptance checks near Wichita, Kansas. c. 1979. Photo Bob Pickett via C/w.com. Photo below In foreground a Moroccan AF #08 T-34C Reg CN-ATH, in the Middle an Unid Equatorian AF T-34C, and in the background Peruvian Naval Aviation FAP 510.
p.s C/w.com exhibits this picture as a symbol of freedom of expression that should exist in all free nations of the world! For the Record, it was erased/banned c. 2004 by the former webmaster of LAAHS.com because the Moroccan sample was considered "out of limits" in a Latin Forum. -)

I don't really know what the bickering between the two of you is all about (nor do I want to), but why don't you guys take it out on each other by PM, wet towels in the shower, handbags at dawn etc., and not on the forum. Childish and boring!Originally Posted by fah619
Rg! J... Don Tulio via pm.
.....shifting gears a bit! Vought F4U-4 FAH 612 after a dead-stick landing. Tamara. c. 1960s. Honduras. Pilot: Capt. Fernando Soto Enriquez.

Just to make an observation ck the U.S stars design in this picture. Photo Ryan. c. 1938
p.s Illustrated below the star design on a U.S Ryan ST. San Diego. c. 1938. Photo Ryan.
Well to be honest it was a guess. I figured the aircraft was an STM-2. It doesn't have US Army titles on the bottom of the wings, so it's likely foreign. The only air forces I know that used the STM-2 were the Dutch and Guatemalan air forces. The wing markings match those of Guatemala.Originally Posted by fah619
PS. The six-sided stars are very unusual!!!
Rg! We are doing some more digging on the 6 point star. Tks!
