I don't know the airplane, but that looks like Jim Maloney (at the nose) and probably Steve Hinton with his back to the camera. By the haircuts, probably mid '70s. Maybe that will jog someone's memory.

Is this the Randy Be'loff that I knew from Flabob airport and March AFB in the early 1970's, who used to own a nice Luscombe. Contact me when you get a chance.nCraig O'Mara

Based on the comments by Marley F. Green, I believe this aircraft to be N4143A, 44-74445, when owned by Mr. Miley in Roy, UT. Aircraft later to N4132A. Sure would like to see the other photo that Mr. Green talks about.

Error it last posting by me. Serial number should be 44-74445 not 44-74495. Fat fingers and rushing caused the error.

This picture is the CAF Gunfighter. Restoration after crash in the late 70s. I would need to check the logs and some of the workers of the time. They are in a hangar at Offutt AFB Omaha. Reg Urschler was Wing Commander. Note the CAF hat worn by one of the guys. Jay Johnson is at the prop. It was his engine. We still use to tow bar in the forground.
