I remember now!

I saw it right here in town at the Kentucky Aviation Museum! They are using it as a small aircraft engine lift.


Sorry I'll stop now.

I wonder if anyone makes a model of this crane? I bet they do!

Mike

I had noticed the lift was obviously removable, as it is missing in the other period pics of the operation The U-shaped base is fitted with wheels, and I guess this "chassis" is made with T-shaped beams

Hello Michael.
Just watch this field work shop. Options for a Sd.Kfz.9 "FAMO" build with a nice and different hoist/crane.

It seems to be an engine repair site. Loads of engines everywhere.
Photo comes from an eBay auction shortlist, published as weekly finds on Missing-Lynx.

Kind regards,

Robert Jan
