  1. Thank you Northcoastaero. So basically it's a mix of parts in the BA family. I read up on the NFAFB during the 1960's into the early 70's, they flew the Super Sabre, C-119 and the C-130. I have a pic of the auto release. It's fairly close to a square box, sealed.
  2. Anyone know the difference between these two parachutes. They share a lot of the same part numbers, so it's hard to tell the difference. The BA-22 seems to be fairly common, I think it's still being made today or at least sold new. I did find the Automatic Release Log, it's first date I can read is 1968 from NFAFB, Niagara Falls NY. The last date 1974. The outer case is date May 1974. Part# 65K-1533-101 The auto release is a Type F-1B. Found it at a yardsale, no one knew the history. Thanks for any help or a point in the right direction. I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out how to. Thanks
  3. Wow, great pics. Looks like it might be the last one, the cap/cup doesn't have a bottom for the tap. Do yo know how old the pictures are? Thanks for you help. Trying to add a pic, see if this works. Mine does have a handle, not sure if it's original. It looks like bakelite by pyrex.
  4. Hi. I have an old Stanley Thermos. This is the skinny one, about 18" tall. Looks a lot like the one Stanley sold in the early 50's. And it's heavy, around 8 pounds. Can someone help decode the numbers. Stamped on the side bottom ring: CONTAINER, LIQUID VACUUM TWO QUART TYPE GI ORDER NO. AF-33 038 21407 SPECIFICATION NO. 40928 LANDERS FRARY & CLARK NEW BRITAIN, CONN USA PROPERTY AF, U.S. ARMY On the bottom: Stanley Super Vac "It will not break" Made in the USA Landers, Frary, & Clark. How made it is the easy part, where's it's been is the hard part. Thanks for any help.
