Racketeering Allegedly the youngest man ever inducted into the Gambino family as a 'made man'.
In addition to the charges against the senior mafiosos at the head of the Gambino and Colombo families were charges against a mafioso whose reach extended beyond New York: Extortion and extortion conspiracy He was arrested in Florida where he was allegedly collecting 'protection' money from strip clubs in Fort Lauderdale.
Usually based in Providence, Rhode, Island, and is alleged to used intimidation and implied threats to induce owners and operators of adult bookstores and strip clubs in Providence to provide 'protection'.
These features are avoided where possible, along with features that appear in only some planes of a given type (i.e. Where possible, the flowchart uses parts that were probably replaced less often, such as frogs, depth adjustment screws and lateral adjustment levers.
This approach doesn't guarantee that you'll date your plane correctly, as the flowchart can be thrown off by some hybrids.
Some owners worked them so hard that they had to replace one or several parts.
Some simply put the wrong bit in the wrong place, some customised their tools to suit their needs - the possibilities for change are endless.
I intend to eventually format the data into a more usable format, but for now I want to put it out for reference and feedback.
By cross-referencing the key features below, you should be able to narrow down the age of your plane to within a few years of manufacture.

I've converted some of the plane dating information found in Patrick Leach's Plane Type Study into an easy-to-use hypertext flowchart.
