Answer/Continuation:  TIME WAS FLYING

(A slightly different clue/question format today.  It had me going for a bit, because I failed to follow my own rules!  Normally, after I’ve solved each jumble and written out the answer letter layout, I add up both the letters in the answer letter layout AND – as a check – the number of letters in each word of the answer.  For whatever reason, I did not do that today and, as it turned out, I had neglected to write out the letter G.  Every letter is important in solving a puzzle, but the G was really key . . . for me.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  The guys have used “hyyls” before.  Great answer letter layout.  Very well jumbled.  And, a fun cartoon.  It’s a little hard to see the propellers on the 1937 plane.  And, its wings should be a little straighter.  The teacher looks a little like Tom Hanks.  But, stereotypically, the young lady looks very disinterested in the lesson.  Not only boys like airplanes and jets, you know!  I like giving Jeff a hard time sometimes!  Somebody’s got to keep him on his toes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  😉

    Thank you for your site, which I’ve visited for the first time today (cheating on the jumble, admittedly ).
    I’m not sure there were many swept wing aircraft in 1937.
    I was working for TEA when the 747 was introduced — still my favorite airliner.

    Thank you, Jerry! I knew there was a term for the more modern wings, but I couldn’t think of it! Yes, “swept wing” is it. I think Jeff jumped ahead a few years. But, it’s still a great cartoon! — YUR

    Yep, I think we pretty much see the swept wing with jet aircraft, development of which wasn’t until very late in WWII.

    I thought FLIGHT before I thought FLYING … but, I think all kinds of things before I put pencil to paper. Thanks, Jerry, for the bit of aeronautic history.

    I was trying to draw either the 1933 Boeing 247 or the DC-3. Yes, I drew a swept wing. Wow! That’s attention to detail.
