    Yup, the Wrights were vicious businessmen who accused Curtiss (and others) of ripping off their patent ideas. Irony- the two companies would merge in 1929

    I had a trivia question ready, but can't remember now. It's open.

    Yeah, easy for you, maybe!

    It looks like a TBD Devastator torpedo bomber from WWII, but that's as far as I can get . . . .

    Right kind of aircraft but not the answer for the question asked.

    Okay, first clue:

    This thing essentially illustrates what would require an Act of Congress.

    1. It's not as easy as you said, but hey.

    TBD-1 BuNo.0353, Ex-NAS Miami.

    The actual US Navy Incident report filed for this loss reads: "Forced landing at sea due to engine failure. Pilot was on a torpedo attack instruction flight. While effecting a rendezvous at about 700’ altitude, his engine RPM increased to approximately 3000. Apparently the propeller changed to extremely low pitch, due to undetermined cause, and, in spite of high RPM, did not provide any thrust. Pilot made a water landing because he lacked sufficient power to maintain flight. The plain sank, preventing the determination of any cause for the power plant failure."
    I guess what you ask for is described here. TBD-1 #0353 Location and Recovery

    Yes, I cheated (googled), but I did it to show you once more that we live in an electronic era now.
