collection, Walter Elkins)
types of fixed-wing aircraft lined up on the flight line.
Occasion is unknown, but event probably occurred in 1952
or 1953. Several planes are organic to combat units stationed
in Germany as they are adorned with unit insignia - USAREUR,
Army and an Armored Division symbol are clearly recognizable.
Aircraft include (as far as I can identify them): (front
row) L-5 Sentinel and L-19 Bird Dog; (back row) L-17 Navion.
