Stinson Reliant ...

Today's image is another of Harold Booth's 1934 photographs from the Fort Peck area. There's no caption on the photo, so all we know is that it's apparently a shot of someone who thought it was cool to shoot moose from an airplane.

Judging from the logo on the side of the fuselage, the aircraft is likely an old Stinson Reliant. You can see the words "Williston" and "opportunity" painted below the plane's windows ... two terms that are seldom seen in the same sentence nowadays. The other lettering is obscured by the wing struts, but it might be the word "Crosby," which is the name of another northwest North Dakota town.


  1. I am laughing so hard right now....

  2. Because of the North Dakota crack, or that poor dead moose?

  3. Because I know you... And Williston.... yes... both.... God I miss our road trips...
