We see NC6021 once at Tucson on June 4, 1928, piloted by Ralph

their way from Wichita to Clover Field during what was undoubtedly
the homeward-bound ferry flight for a proud owner in his new
John Schofield was a private pilot, operating on a fresh
letter of authority when, on October 10, 1928 he crashed the airplane
at San Clemente, CA. He and his passenger were uninjured.
The airplane sustained damage to the lower wings, landing
gear and propeller. It had another accident at Van Nuys on
September 17, 1930. No pilot was identified in the record, but the airplane

There were no repairs reported, and it was not presented for
inspection. The registration was cancelled May 1, 1931, even though
owner Harvey continued to submit address changes until 1935.
