Can anyone identify the aircraft in the attached photo? The exact year is not known but the photo should date from 1933 to 1935. The plane was from the 154th Observation Squadron of the Arkansas National Guard.

I'll try this again so that opening a file is unnecessary. This is the photo. An identification of the aircraft is being sought . . .

If I could see the tail arrangement I could confirm this...but my guess is that it's a Douglas O-2. I think some of later ones were known as the BT-1.
Hope this helps.

Phil, Here is a photo of the same plane showing the tail assembly. Would this confirm a Douglas O-2?
Thanks for the response . . .

I believe this is a Douglas O2H. The earlier variants had a different cowling and tail.

I think it's actually an O2-J or O2-K as it has dual cockpits. The H had a pilot's station and a gunner's pit with scarff ring.
