    Whatever it is that's hanging down next to the engine nacelle, it's a cool detail. Must the the pull down to the attic... .. .

    edit_ Turns out it's an optional Mail Compartment.

    See wing detail note near center of drawing. Read some of the other notes i.e. Differential Brake Lever some of the other notes.

    Well, lookie what I found this morning. I use Google Earth at work and what doing a job near San Luis Obispo's airport this morning. While I was scanning over the area I found a shot of our old friend the Stout Bushmaster aka, Ford Tri Motor pictured above. The GE image is copyrighted 2015, but the image was shot on 8/23/2013, so it must of have been sold, and flown out, shortly afterward.

    But look what else is sitting on the tarmac. I've seen this aircraft fly over the are twice, but not recently. It is, or was, privately owned, and I think I recall it was an ex-Canadian Air Force machine. I was thinking something like Canadair T33, but I'm not so sure. I know one thing, when he's lights the torch it goes.

    Twin engine, straight wing plan, V-tail (I'm guessing from the shadows); the V-tail would eliminate the T-33. Plus, the nose doesn't look long enough.

    A little closer, fuzzier, view....

    Maybe an Avro-something?

    It looks just like a U2. Ironically I was using google earth to look at Pismo beach recently as I followed C. K. Shepherds ride report through that area in 1919. Not sure what a U2 would be doing at what looks like a civil airport.

    I don't think It's a v tail if you look carefully it's just the angle and shadows.

    I think you're right.

    It's looking sort of like an Avro Canada CF100 Canuck-like substance. But the wing/empenage plan-form ratio is longer/narrower. Maybe a high altitude version?

    Hmm... Possibly. How about a Lockheed T33 shooting star (trainer for the P-80)?

    One thing's for sure, the Magister isn't going to win any Ugly Contests, IMO.



    ... and verified.

    Seems we've got some aviation heavies in little old SLOtown.
