Boeing P-12s
A gaggle of eight Boeing P-12Bs, each flown by a 43rd Pursuit Squadron Instructor from Kelly Field in 1932.

This formation of P-12s, from the 43rd Pursuit Squadron at Kelly Field, Texas, shows the entire instructor faculty teaching student pilots basic fighter maneuvers in the Air Corps in the summer of 1932. Flying P-12 #2, in the lead position, was instructor pilot and Commandant of Cadets, Lieutenant Carlisle I. Ferris, the artist’s father.

During my very early years of life, I grew up watching these planes take off and land day after day at Kelly Field, Texas. The P-12 still remains one of my very favorite airplanes.*
