In my research on a T-50 Bobcat, I came across this picture. It is the only one I have found where it shows the wooden propeller mounted on the plane. I would like to make a print of it to display next to the prop. My problem is that I can't find the source of the original. It appears to be in a museum collection. Does anyone know where this plane is displayed?

Check out this link for the Canada Aviation and Space Museum (http://casmuseum.techno-science.ca/en/collection-research/collection.php?&start=20) in Ottawa. It was a Bobcat in the U.S. but a "Crane (http://casmuseum.techno-science.ca/en/collection-research/artifact-cessna-crane.php)" in Canada. I'm reasonably sure that both photos are of the same plane.

I think there are quite a few of those wooden propellers around, many made by S&S in Winnipeg. It seems that they were produced in high volume only to be replaced by metal propellers and quickly become obsolete.

I found it on their site. I'm going to contact them.

Appreciate the help.
