No problem skwinty. And going through all would be too tough (some 31,000 posts )

But we (usually, often, …) check Mel's list, and only exceptionally post something again. Exceptions being pure forgetfulness or absent-mindedness, new and challenging angle, or just to check if others are awake.

Reposting the challenge from previous page for easy viewing:

A Yank, yes. With a little bit different question you could have gotten a little bit different answer, though. Only a little.

Edit: My forecast of first 1,000 posts is going to rats. We'll make it today, two weeks before my prediction

Not Consolidated. Someone more interested in railroads than flying, in fact…..

What would you have said if RR had asked 'American?'

Fairchild bought out Dornier and Dornier built railroad equip as well as aircraft.

ETA: Wrong type.
