NC6755 was a Monocoupe Model 70, S/N 158. It landed once at Tucson, Monday August 22, 1932. It was flown solo by H.E. Hibbard of Lodi, CA. He arrived from Yuma, AZ. He did not list a destination. Below, courtesy of the San Diego Aerospace Museum Flickr Stream (SDAM), is a profile of NC6755. The date and location are unknown.

As of the upload date of this page, the best I can say is that I have indirect information about NC6755. It is not listed among the aircraft files at the Smithsonian. In the FAA registration number Web site, there is no aircraft registered as NC or N6755. That said, you may see an image of the model 70 type in this Monocoupe advertising brochure from 1932. The brochure is part of the Cooper Collection on

The indirect information I have comes from a pilot log book (PDF 4.2Mb) shared by site visitor G. Brent Dalrymple. Brent's father, William B. Clayton (not a Register pilot), took his first flight in NC6755. Page five of the PDF logs Clayton's first flight on October 17, 1929. His last flight in the log is cited as March 21, 1931.

Mr. Dalrymple says of his father, "... [he] was a civilian flight instructor for the AAC at Thunderbird II (1942-44) and a Flight Officer and Service Pilot for the AAF (1944-46).  According to his logbook he took his first flying lesson in this Veile Monocoupe on Oct 17, 1929 and flew for 20 minutes.  He flew approximately 6.5 hours in NC6755 and then transitioned to a Kari Keen to finish his private pilot license.  This was at Vail Field in Montebello , CA, and NC6755 apparently belonged to either Whittier Airways Co. or Great Western Aircraft Corp.--both companies appear in his log.  His instructor was Harold F. Brown, Transport Pilot #3448."

Interestingly, Harold F. Brown is a Register pilot, too.
