Lt. Lowry And His Plane

6,316-11-117 ... A photo of a photo found at Wings Over The Rockies Air And Space Museum.

 

This is the exact plane that Lt. Lowry was killed in. ... That's him standing by the number "II" painted on the tail.

 

Lowry Air Force Base in Denver was named for him. The Wings Over The Rockies museum is in a WWII hangar that was left after they closed the AFB. See: www.wingsmuseum.org

 

This is one of many many photos I used for reference for my model.

 

The Salmson 2A2 was a World War One French biplane used for observation, reconnaissance, photography, artillery spotting and possibly bombing. It was powered by a unique 260 HP Salmson radial water cooled engine.

 

It is important to note that there are no surviving Salmson 2A2's from W.W.I and no full size or 7/8 or 3/4 size replicas except one semi-accurate full size replica in Japan. Most people have never even heard of the Salmson 2A2, even though over 3,000 were built and it served well.
