Registration Number NC7332

Flown and Stored

Our aircraft is a Monocoupe, S/N 208 (ATC #22/113/70) built in 1928 (exact date unknown) by the Mono-Aircraft Co. of Moline, IL. It came equipped with a 65 HP Velie M-5 engine, S/N 260. As a two-seater, it weighed 1,350 pounds.

It sold on October 6, 1928 to Monoplane Aircraft Co. of Los Angeles, CA. Something must have been going on, because the records state that on September 20, 1928 (note: a month earlier than date above) it sold to California Standard Finance Co. of Los Angeles. Then, on March 12, 1929 there was a, “judgment, bought at court sale” by owners unidentified.

Regardless, on April 2029 it was purchased, from storage, by Jack Thurman and Myron F. Powell of Pomona, CA. On July 13, 1929 it transferred to Mr. Powell as sole owner. NC7332 lands at Tucson three times, on August 8, 1929, June 15, 1930, and June 28, 1930, each time piloted solo by owner Myron F. Powell. His origins and destinations were generally across the southern tier route: Los Angeles (Burnley Field), Pomona, Yuma, El Paso and San Angelo, TX.

Pilot Powell sold the airplane to Alva H. Privett of Claremont, CA on June 7, 1933. As of 6/16 it had accumulated 299:56 flight hours. It was repurchased by Mr. Powell on April 20, 1934 at an executor’s sale. It was rebuilt by Willard Staples, Pomona, CA and placed in storage in 1937. It was recorded in 1939 as having accumulated 510:10 flight hours. Registration was issued to expire January 15, 1941. There is no further information. Maybe this one is still in storage somewhere?
