I think this WC 22 was taken at the CWTG Bash in Batavia, NY.http://forums.aths.org/Uploads/Images/7a9829c3-fb36-44ff-b61a-9b53.JPG

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.

Air Force had a lot of 1940s/50s Whites, most were semis for pulling fuel tank trailers. So this is probably authentic. In fact, many of the surviving Whites were well preserved Air Force trucks later repurposed for other jobs. The one or two that I've seen had Eaton rear axles, but there might be some with White cast iron rear axle housings. Model WA 22 was from 1942-46, WC 22 was 1948-56. If you take a picture of the instrument panel we can tell the difference in models.

I'd like to know what brand that 5th wheel is if you go out to look.

Wondering if anyone can tell me what year and model this White truck is with the USAF branding on it.
Sorry I don't have a better picture of it.

An uneducated guess is a White WC-22, between 1948-53, however I can't find any reference that White was used by any branch but the Army.
