Interesting shot of something not seen everyday, Jim. They're very quick 
machines these days, and probably drink fuel. Where were they coming from? 
New York I suppose.

We have a couple of Augusta Westlands which can be fitted with machine guns 
and that's about the extent of our Air Corps... Must go out to Baldonnell, 
and take some shots, one of the days.
