The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

Curtiss A-18 Shrike.

The Curtiss A-18 Shrike was a twin-engine ground-attack aircraft developped from the A-14 (this last one first flew on september 1935 but was underpowered). Fitted with new 850 hp engines, now named A-18, the aircraft was built in a short serie of thirteen airframes as promising new prototypes like the Douglas A-20 Havoc were on schedule. The small batch was assigned in 1937 and used during with great success during army exercises but suffered lot of landing gear failures. Just before WW2 broke, the remaining airframes were assigned to the Caribbean Air Force and later in Panama during 1942. In 1943, the Douglas A-20 Havoc definitively replaced it.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Curtiss A-18 Shrike.
