Plane is --- Vought-Sikorsky OS2U-3 Kingfisher

Trucks, give me trucks!!! --- I'M LIKING TRUCKSWhen we see what we want to see, and hear what we want to hear---- all too often we miss the point!


I'm where I'm at when I'm all there! But,when I'm here, how can I be all there?

I talked to a guy about ten years ago at a show. He had a U-90 that was an ex- Air Force tractor that pulled a tank trailer. It had a 501 Blue Streak and Autocar's 5 speed transmission with over drive locked out.( I guess it would be a 4 speed then) It has what I believe yo be the TK heavy spec rear end, 12.00X24 rubber and he said it was geared like 10 to 1.

It was a full cab truck, not like the soft tops I've see in other military Autocars. He didn't show me any documentation, that it was military. I also spoke to a couple other guys over the years who've said they owned similar Autocars.

A friend of mine has a ex-Army Autocar from the 40's. It looks totally different form the civilian ones I've seen.

After looking at the photo again, I see it has what looks like a drive front axle, Definitely not a U-90.

I know nothing about planes so I need clarification on Jeff's pictures.

There is clearly snow on the ground and the planes have pontoons mounted. Is there some water nearby or are they landing on snow using pontoons instead of a ski?


Nevermind....after some morning java, I can see the wheels. Thank goodness for coffee

I think that Autocar fueling the plane in the Life photo is a U-90. I have talked to several people who have owned one.


Definitely not a U-90, my avatar is a U-70 which is the same as a U-90 other than engine/GVW. The autocar fueler is a military only U series and has a 4 digit model #. There were several different models, I believe this one is a U-5044.

dunno why i toke fer granted all the years in alaska truckin bizz
cause it is always a major interaction of trucks and reload ta boats and planes [prob more so than anywhere in the united states]
used ta always chase shedules ta transload
never thought ta take no pics of the 747 takin the windscreen outta the kw while on the tarmac durin the exxon valdez campain

the pilot cuuttin off number 4 engine onna dc6 durin takeoff ta clear the ex stack of onnea my trucks durin takeoff

or transloadi stuff [some by hand] from the flatbed onta c47;s and c46;s and dc6

prob aint nowhere that still runs so many ol prop planes as alaska does

also had some pics of the sr71;s and active u 2;s while i delived freight and visited my sister and brother in law while i had the clearence on the flight line at beal AFB years ago
....unfortainatly ex number 2 decided the pics werent important

My favorite aircraft photos are the ones with trucks in them ! Most of these photos are from the Life Magazine collection.
