Lovell Field - 1941

Occasionally, a rare wondrous glimpse of the past finds its way back to us.

A 16mm film taken by Walter M. Cline Jr. includes less than 2 minutes captured while visiting Lovell Field. Military aircraft are on display. The US was just months away from entering World War II following the December 7th Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Vultee BT-13
Vultee B-13 Trainers

The Vultee BT-13 Valiant was one of the most widely used United States primary trainers of World War II. It was more complex than the primary trainers and possessed a more powerful engine.

The Brewster F2A Buffalo was one of the first U.S. monoplanes with an arrestor hook and other modifications for aircraft carriers. However, was largely obsolete when the United States entered the war, being unstable and overweight, especially when compared to the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero. (Source: Wikipedia)
