John Macone Sr. after a check ride in his bi-wing crate. “The hell with flying. I’ll never get in one of these things again!"

John Macone – Crew Chief of this Curtis Jenny JN4 trainer.
B17

John climbing into a B-17G. The plane we used was a B17G ( without the chin turret or gun) The instrumentation for weather features, droplet size, density , snowflake form etc. was recorded on old "old" instrumentation in the plane synoptically with "test" primitive cathod displays on the ground. This was the development of the first ground weather radar. We had an Air Force crew and there were two of us civilians (MIT) to handle the weather radar stuff. Of course this was all analog stuff in the plane and it was before the advent or use of any solid state etc. My time with the project was while waiting to be activated (Reserve AF) in 1950 or 51. Plane naturally, belonged to the AF.

"OLD 815"

Actual in air shot of Bob Macone's plane in WW 2, with Bob in the left seat.
He ditched this bird in heavy seas with 19 men on board and got all of them out safely with him being the last man through the hatch. All this with an enjured leg sustained in the crash. Then their rafts got them to an island in the China sea where they were eventually rescued by an Air Force PBY amphibian
