June Mystery Plane: Alliance Argo A-1
There was a good response to our last Mystery Airplane, the Alliance Argo A-1. First correct answerreceived was from John Eney. Bradford Payne (submitting a detailed descriptioin), Bill Bosma, John LaBarre, and Wayne Muxlow also provided correct answers .
Also received were a number of responses that incorrectly identified the Mystery Aiurplane which, in fact, appeared similar to a lot of biplandes from that era. F?or an in-depth story of the Alliance Arco A-1, read Wesley Smith’s excellent article. >
