      I cannot see the details very well. They may be two seat trainers.

      The photo looks like pre- war or very early WW2.

      Read your other post about your Dad starting in 1943-- I would say this is from that time period.

      I think it is Jacksonville AAF/ Imeson Field based on the photographs. See here:

      Hello filmnet,

      You do have a lot of interesting posts. I'll have to come back and give them a closer look soon.

      The plane on the left, and probably the others too, is a Fairchild PT-19. It is more than likely the same one as in your recent post with the log book entries.

      Great picture.

      My dad told us pilots landed on the sand to talk to girls, he did not.

      Scott yes he told us about flying and girls on the sand, and 2 planes were on the sands.
