One of the spiffy looking planes of the Air Corps was the Douglas O-35. A bomber version, the B-7, was identical in appearance – just a different role. This bird belongs to the 88th Observation Squadron at Hamilton Field, CA.

  1. B-7s flew the mails over the western US during an air mail contract stalemate in 1934. They were not equipped for night or bad weather flying and 4 of them crashed in just 4 months.
