Strickland Aircraft Corporation is listed as a manufacturing concern in Topeka, Kansas in 1943. It may have moved to North Caroline during or after the war. It is listed among companies who sought federal financial assistance between 1942 and 1943 (i.e. $98,770). In 1943 Strickland was working on a project called the Strickland Invader. IDK what type of aircraft (if it was an aircraft) the Strickland Invader was. It is listed among copyrighted Works of Art for 1943.

Hesham,

No I don't have a picture of the aircraft. According to the copyright, there may exist a piece of conceptual art out there, which the company may have used in an advertisement or brochure. I'll keep looking though.
