At left is Douglas O-2H 28-129. It was flown by J.E. Upston to Tucson on June 25, 1928. Based at Washington, DC, pilot Upston was eastbound from San Diego, CA to El Paso, TX. He carried one unidentified passenger. He left no information in the Remarks column of the Register, so we don't know what the purpose of this flight was.

Upston landed one other time, on September 6, 1928, flying a Curtiss O-1 Falcon. He and his passenger, F.R. Neely, were westbound from El Paso to Los Angeles, CA.

Below, an image of 28-129 at Crissy Field in San Francisco, CA. The 91st Observation Squadron, formed during WWI, was based at San Francisco beginning in 1921. Please follow this link to learn a little more about the Squadron and its airplanes, its duties and insignia. If anyone recognizes any of the pilots, please let me KNOW.
