Not sure what kind of planes are on this old photo? Does anyone have any idea?

This is a formation of Curtiss-Wright AT-9s officially known as the Fledgling, but also known as the Jeep.

A high resolution version of the photo is available here: A formation of AT-9s over the Gulf of Mexico. USAF Photo
