Registration Number NC8622

Died In Infancy

This aircraft was a Fleet Husky 2 with original manufacturer’s serial number 26. The Fleet Aircraft Company, Buffalo, NY built it on 3/30/29. It left the factory at 1,575 lbs., with a 90 HP Kinner K-5 engine S/N 230. It was a two-passenger airplane that landed four times at Tucson. See its sister ships, NC8601, NC8602, NC8610 and NC8617.

It sold on 3/30/29 to Frank E. Williams of Los Angeles, CA. We find the airplane at Tucson on 4/11/1929 piloted by Mr. Williams, carrying passenger W.O. Anderson. They were westbound from Buffalo, NY, stayed overnight in Tucson, and left the next day for Los Angeles. They were probably ferrying this brand new airplane from the factory to its new home on the west coast.

On 6/19/29 the airplane sold to Stanley A. Williams of Los Angeles (transport license #9762; A&E license #3410). It had Kinner engine S/N 314 installed. It suffered an accident at Glendale, CA on 8/16/29. The airplane ground looped while attempting to turn and collided with another aircraft on the ground. The front spar on the upper wing was cut in two. It was repaired and returned to service on 2/7/30 with Kinner engine S/N 5314.

It suffered a final accident at Downey, CA on 8/8/31 and was “washed out”, barely two and a half years old. Registration cancelled 8/21/31.
