Happy Friday Oppos, welcome to another edition of NTP!
The rules are simple. I’ll give you three clues regarding the subject aircraft and the first to correctly identify it wins. The prize? As my mom always said, “The satisfaction of a job well-done.”
Note: The aircraft in the lede image IS NOT the subject aircraft.
On to the clues!
Clue #1: This aircraft took its first flight in the same year that San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge opened for traffic.
Clue #2: 40 different pilots across multiple nations became aces in this aircraft.
Clue #3: Jetblue’s corporate headquarters occupy the former assembly plant of this aircraft.
EDIT: Smallbear wins with the correct answer of Brewster Buffalo. The Buffalo was a fighter used by the U.S. Navy and a few other nations in the 1930s and 40s.
Until next time...
