This airplane landed at Tucson Thursday, February 6, 1930 flown by J.M. Johnson. He carried his wife as his single passenger. They were eastbound from Los Angeles, CA to El Paso, TX. Inferring from the NASM record, the flight logged in the Register is probably while the airplane was still owned by the factory, as it did not sell the first time until eight months later.

NC9632 is a Buhl Airsedan, Model CA-6 (S/N 47; ATC# 128) manufactured by the Buhl Aircraft Company, Marysville, MI in October, 1929. It came from the factory with a Wright R-975-A engine (S/N 10432 of 300 HP. It was a six-place airplane, weighing 4,200 pounds.

It was sold in October 1930 to Brooks Construction & Transportation Co., Ltd., Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. At the time of sale (October 3, 1930), it was overhauled at the Buhl factory, minor repairs were effected, and Wright R-975 engine S/N 10199 was installed.

The NC license was cancelled on October 14, 1930, and the airplane was exported to Canada under export certificate #E-345. No further information.
