Sounds like you need a newer book!
As you are just about there, it's the New Standard D-33 (incorrectly listed as the D-32 in Aerofiles)


You have control

Well, I then went to Aerofiles and saw "31" and "32", so went with the first. Process of elimination.

Thanks mate, but it'll have to be Open House....

Graeme, does your source call this a shoulder-wing or high-wing?

Light transport?

Are you looking at Aerofiles? Excellent.

I'd call it a shoulder wing? "ChwM"

"rare transport"

Looking closer at the photo I can see American Airways on the fuselage.

Also used by the USAAF.
