Fokker F-10A NC801E

Dismantled ASAP

This aircraft was a Fokker F-10A tri-motor, (S/N 1030; ATC# 96), manufactured during May 1929 by the Fokker Aircraft Corporation of America, New York, NY.  It left the factory with three Pratt & Whitney Wasp engines (S/N 1189; 1381; 1382) of 410 HP each.  It sold on May 17 1929 to Universal Aviation Corporation, St. Louis, MO.  Although it is not clear from the NASM record, this airplane may have been based at Glendale, WV.

NC801E was sold on October 1, 1930 to Southern Air Fast Express, Inc., Love Field, Dallas, TX.  It sold again on August 5, 1931 to American Airways, Dallas, TX.  During American ownership we find NC801E at Tucson twice.  L.B. Andrews flew it in on November 27, 1931 at 12:41PM.  He carried two passengers,C.R. Smith and Mr. Corbin. They were inbound from El Paso, TX returning to their homebase, Dallas, TX.

Somewhere between December 5 and 25, 1932, John Martin landed carrying Mr. & Mrs. J.C. Tomlinson.  Based in Boston, MA, they were westbound from El Paso, TX to Burbank, CA.  Shortly, on January 21, 1933, American Airways notified the CAA by letter that the aircraft had been removed from service and would be, “dismantled as soon as possible.”  No further information.
