In the early 1930s Boeing developed a series of biplanes designated the F4B for the US Navy
and US Marine Corps but was a P-12 for the US Army Air Corps. The aircraft were first
accepted in 1929 and served as the primary fighter. The P-12 was built in 6 successful
variants while the F4B had 4. The P-12 was replaced by the Boeing P-26 in 1934-35 but the
F4B carried on with operational duties until the Grumman F2F/F3F series completely replaced
them in 1938.
The 308th Observation Squadron was assigned to the 5th Corps Area Reserve base at Port
Columbus Airport, Columbus, Ohio. The 5th Corps Area States of responsibility consisted of
Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia with headquarters Columbus. These Organized
Reserve units were usually only "paper" units for officers waiting for assignments. The aircraft
of choice in the 1939 period was the Boeing P-12 which first flew in 1931 with the _P-12E
being the best known variant.
