Pulp #4 -- August 21, 2009

This issue of Air Trails features what I assume to be a Bell Airacuda, a plane meant to be a bomber destroyer. I read about it in a magazine when I was in grammar school and was impressed by what seemed like very advanced features for the 1930s, but it was ultimately a failure. Note the pusher propellers on the nacelles, each of which was manned and armed with a cannon.

The image is from a wonderful site called Cover Browser:
