The Douglas XB-19 was the largest airplane in the world when it first flew in 1941. It was intended to carry a 36,000-pound bomb load for 2,000 miles.The purpose of the XB-19 project was to test the flight characteristics and design techniques associated with giant bombers. Despite advances in technology that made the XB-19 obsolete before it was even completed, the Army Air Corps felt that the prototype would be useful for testing. After completion of testing, the XB-19 served as a cargo carrier until it was scrapped in 1949.

The VG 39 commenced its flight test program on 3 May 1940, unfortunately too late to change the flow of the events. The prototype differed from the VG 33 primarily in having a 1200hp Hispano-Suiza Type 89ter 12-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with an elongated propeller shaft, a revised wing structure which retained the profile and contours of the earlier wing, and a wing-mounted armament of six 7.5mm MAC 1934 M39 machine guns.

CFS2 version of AF Scrub Curtiss P-6E Hawk biplane fighter. Curtiss-built biplanes that equipped fighter units of the Air corps and Navy during the 1920's and 30's were inspired by the air racing during the early 1930's. The most famous of the Hawks was the P-6, first flown in 1929. The P-6E had a modified fuselage, single strut landing gear with stylish wheel fairings and a 700 hp engine with Prestone cooling. A total of 46 production P-6E's were delivered to the three fighter squadrons, the 17th, 33rd and the 95th. The last eighteen P-6E's were retired from the service in 1939, mostly donated to flying schools as non-flying training aids.
