The Plane called a Jeep by the USAAF

• CATEGORIES: Features

Admittedly, I know very little about planes.  So, maybe I’m the only person who didn’t know that there was a plane that’s called a Jeep?   It is the Curtiss AT-9 ‘Jeep’ plane.  I discovered it while looking through some old photos at the McCarthur Museum in Arkansas (which I’ll feature in a couple days).

Here’s the photo I initially found. (see the last sentence in the caption).  When I first saw the photo, I looked around to see where the jeep was sitting, but the little plane was blocking my view.  Then it finally dawned on me that the little plane was the jeep.

Here’s a more recent photo from Wikipedia.
