Interesting subject. I am surprised that they used so many BE 2c aircraft. The Rankin Dart is an amazing idea, too.

Thank you for getting this posted for me Fred. I do appreciate it.

I thought that the Rankin Dart was a pretty cool idea for it's time. I always think of the expression...."Necessity is the mother of invention"...when I read about how new weapons had to be created to deal with a new foe.

This is a very nice book with a lot of useful interesting information in it.

Thanks again,
Randy
