Sorry, not a Fairchild 22. Not made in France. The mystery aircraft was designed by an aviation pioneer who gave a famous pilot his first flight in an aeroplane.

Bri,

Ryan YO-51 Dragonfly?

In which case, the pioneer would be Tubal Claude Ryan (you can see why he used his second name), but I cannot find out who the other famous pilot might be.

Not a Douglas aircraft. The mystery ship set an endurance record with an L-head radial engine.

More theory !!! Should I say Timm M-150 ? as Otto.W.Timm took Charles Lindburgh for his first flight at Lincoln Standard Airfield on April 9 1922.

Yes, Keith. It is the Timm M-150 Collegiate City of Los Angeles. You have control.

c2j you are correct again, an aircraft with more names and makers than owners ! Over to your choice. Keith.

Not a Rearwin, though of generally similar timeframe.

Looks similar to the St. Louis Cardinal, although the panel is not original.

Planegill,

Good guess, but NO it is NOT the St. Louis Cardinal.

32 produced by a manufacturer with an interesting connection to travel.

Not a Welch Falcon.

Never thought this would go on so long with this smart group! Manufactured in the American mid-west by a company with a good reputation in baggage.

Not a Monocoupe, but it is generally similar in appearence (weren't they all?). This plane was built in 1931 and mounts a 90hp Warner radial engine.

To the best of my knowledge only two examples of this company's flying produce exist today, both in museums. One in Canada and the other (my challenge) in the US.
