TRAVEL AIR 2000 NC6021

Registration Number NC6021

Enough Is Enough

This aircraft is a Travel Air 2000, S/N 550 (ATC #30), manufactured May 29, 1928 by Travel Air Manufacturing Co., Wichita, KS. It had a Curtiss 90 HP OX-5 engine, S/N 6429. It weighed 2,180 pounds. It was purchased for $2,997 on 5/29 by John Schofield, c/o H.C. Lippiatt of Hollywood, CA, a dealer in Travel Air planes for southern California.

We see NC6021 once at Tucson on June 4, 1928, piloted by Ralph Monter with owner John Schofield as passenger. They were on their way from Wichita to Clover Field during what was undoubtedly the homeward-bound ferry flight for a proud owner in his new airplane.

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 was sold on January 30, 1931 to Eugene V. Harvey of San Diego for $450. 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.
