    Any ideas on the target names?

    I'd love to find out where they were based, what they flew.

    Hey guys, the label size tab says 36R. I have never seen a Reg, Long, or Short on a period A-2. Was this just done by Aero? Was this a later addition?

    I have not seen it done by other makers and it was not common on labels from this last Aero contract either. It was of course done quite commonly on B-3s so I wonder if size tags from Aero B-3s were used for whatever reason on some of their A2s.

    We should do a bit of crowd funding to have the stuff kept together in a museum.

    Hey Skyhawk,
    I have a Rough Wear 1401p with a size label marked as 42 Medium.
