This is a still I lifted from an old 8mm home movie...I was trying to get clear pics of the planes and I notice the tractor in the back ground....I realize it is too blurry to identify...but the colors look David Brown?..these are taken at a naval air station on Nantuckett island in the mid 50s I think....I know they made tuggers?

You can tell alot about a man by the tools he employs.

I suspect it's a Massey Harris tractor - DB didn't use the yellow until the late 50s and the wings look more like MH ones. Of course I could be wrong on all counts!

I actually agree with John but for different reasons. I think the form of the tractor is too tall for a DB of the time.
