WACO 10 NC7375

Registration Number NC7375

A Proud 1928 Air Racer Relegated to Ground School Instruction

This aircraft was a Waco 10 GXE with original manufacturer’s serial number 1755. The Advance Aircraft Company, Troy, OH built it during July 1928. As a 3-place aircraft, it left the factory at 2,025 lbs., with a 90 HP Curtiss OX-5 engine S/N 4292.

It was sold during August 1928 to John Francis Casey of Shrewsbury, NJ for $3,120. Casey, in turn, sold it to William Barclay Harding of Rumson, NJ on August 20, 1928. It was immediately entered and flown in the 1928 NY to Los Angeles Air Race (“On to Los Angeles”).

We find NC7375 landing twice at Tucson. Both landings, on September 9, 1928 and on September 21, 1928, were piloted by Stuart Chadwick with owner Mr. Harding as passenger. “On to Los Angeles” began on September 5th in New York and ended about a week later in LA. Chadwick and Harding’s first landing at Tucson occurred on their way to Los Angeles (inbound from Lordsburg, NM) during the competition. The second was probably the return trip east after the race.

Harding sold the airplane on Aprel 22, 1929 to Paul T. Gee of Daytona Beach, FL. It sold again on December 3, 1929 to Mrs. Revena Cowan of Daytona Beach. On January 28, 1930 the airplane, “failed to recover from a side slip. Plane stalled and slipped into the sand.” Landing gear, prop, center section and struts “washed out.” Student pilot Windor M. Cowan was uninjured.

On May 9, 1930 the airplane was sold to Curtiss-Wright Flying Service of Atlanta, GA. It was sold without engine, to be used for ground school instruction. Registration cancelled June 2, 1930.
