MS-152: Dayton-Wright Airplane Company Photographs
The wings of a De Havilland DH-4 are placed in a crate and being prepared to be shipped out from the Dayton-Wright Airplane Company. Five wings are visible in the crate and three open spaces still remain showing that the crate could hold eight wings total. Written on the crate are the numbers 30105 and 30127. In the background the fuselage of a DH-4 is packed as well. Other crates and supplies can be seen throughout the image. Behind the wings stands a chemical fire cart with a tank and hose attached. The cart is labeled as Chemical Deluge and has an axe attached to the handle. This image was taken circa 1918.
