Vought XTBU-1 prototype (BuNo. 2542), later designated as the TBY Sea Wolf, produced at the USN production facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1943-44.  The production TBYs were radar-equipped, with a radome under the right-hand wing. The first one flew on 20 August 1944, with 180 built.  Most were used for training.

Curtiss N2C-2 Fledgling converted into a target drone at the Naval Aircraft Factory, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1938/39. Note that the aircraft has been fitted with a tricycle landing gear.

Keystone Aircraft Corporation was an early American airplane manufacturer.  Headquartered in Bristol, it was formed as "Ogdensburg Aeroway Corp" in 1920 by Thomas Huff and Elliott Daland, but its name was quickly changed to "Huff-Daland Aero Corp", then to "Huff-Daland Aero Company".  The company made a name for itself in agricultural aircraft, and then in the US Army Air Corps' early bomber aircraft.  From 1924, James McDonnell was the chief designer.

Vought O3U-6 Corsair drone.  The U.S. Naval Aircraft Factory at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, converted a small number of 03U-6s to drone configuration in 1941 for flight testing under extreme conditions where a pilot might be endangered.

The RB-1 Conestoga was a twin-engine, stainless steel cargo aircraft designed for the US Navy during the Second World War by the Budd Company of Philadelphia.  Although it did not see service in a combat theater, it pioneered design innovations in American cargo aircraft, later incorporated in modern military cargo airlifters.

U.S. Navy Budd RB-1 Conestoga (BuNo. 39295) at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland (USA).  Note the North American PBJ Mitchell in the background.  The photo is dated 24 May 1949, but in early 1945 all RB-1s were transferred to the War Assets Administration and on 5 July 1945, fourteen of them were sold to the National Skyway Freight Corporation (NSFC), which in turn sold four aircraft to Shell Oil. 39295 became the civilian NC45348 of NSFC in July 1945 and was out of use in July 1947.

Naval Aircraft Factory XN3N-2 Canary or Yellow Peril (BuNo. 0265) training biplane in flight.  Various handling and control problems of the N3N-1 were tried to correct with the XN3N-2 prototype which was ordered in October 1935. This aircraft was powered by the 240 hp (179 kW) Wright R-760-96 engine.  In order to reduce the tail heaviness, the aircraft was equipped with new engine mounts and a longer engine cowling, some equipment was also moved forward.  The XN3N-2 made its first flight at the NAF Mustin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 11 August 1936.  However, it was found that this aircraft did not adequately improve performance.  Therefore, the N3N-1 (BuNo. 0020) was converted into the XN3N-3 prototype, which went into production.
