Registration Number NC6057

Pilot And Airplane Did Not Recover

This aircraft is a Swallow Standard, S/N 955 (ATC#21), manufactured ca. 5/28 by Swallow Airplane Company, Wichita, KS. It had a 90 HP Curtiss OX-5 engine, S/N 5285. It weighed 2,200 pounds. It sold on January 18, 1929 to James H. Woods of Ulysses, KS with OX-5 engine S/N 2799. Perhaps the aircraft was used by the factory as a demonstrator for 6-months or so before it was sold to Mr. Woods.

We find NC6057 at Tucson on January 23, 191929, piloted by J.H. Woods carrying passenger Dale Myers. Woods indicated his home base as Wichita, KS. They were westbound from Lordsburg, NM, destination not specified. There was no indication in the Register of how the pilot or passenger might have been related. Myers operated a flight training and maintenance operation at Tucson; refer to his link.

On April 11, 1928, the aircraft suffered an accident at Macon, GA. Pilot J.H. Woods and one passenger sustained minor injuries. The aircraft suffered damage to the landing gear, lower wings, propeller and engine. It was repaired and new factory landing gear were installed.

Between June 13, 1929 and November 14, 1935 the airplane changed owners ten more times, suffered two more accidents and had four different engines installed. On December 7, 1935, its final owner and student pilot Clarence G. Carr, had an accident in Dallas, TX. There were no details given, but pilot Carr was fatally injured. The aircraft registration was cancelled on December 17, 1935.
