ALIVE & WELL!
This airplane landed at Tucson on May 2, 1933 flown by Peter
Dana. He carried one passenger identified as M.G. Wallace.
Based in San Diego, CA, they were eastbound from San Diego
headed for "New Hampshire". It might have stopped off in Boston, MA, because the two images below were taken at what is currently named Logan Airport.
Great Lakes NC11324, THEN
The two images above and below are shared with us by Chris from Massachusetts. These pictures were taken by his grandfather at what is now Logan Airport in Boston. His grandfather was Robert W.Wallstrom, a participant in the Jordan-Traveler Junior Aviation League, Boston MA. In 1929, a large model airplane club, the Jordan-Traveler Junior Aviation League, was started in Boston. The club was sponsored by the Jordan Marsh Company, a department store, and the Boston Traveler, a newspaper. See NC8458 for other images from his album.
Great Lakes NC11324, THEN, Contrast-Enhanced
Image above has been contrast-enhanced in PhotoShop to show the registration number and details of the paint scheme more clearly
Below, NC11324 is rare among Davis-Monthan
Airfield aircraft, because it is still registered with the
FAA and is, as of 1985, still flying. The annotation on the
original image (refer to the source cited in the left sidebar) says, "Great Lakes 2T-1A Restored, Menasco
B-4 “Pirate” 95 HP, Chino CA 1985".
