The Rearwins, Salina, KS, Date Unknown (Source: Link)


The undated photograph at right shows Rae Rearwin (center, 1883-1969), his son Royce (left, 1910-2007), and his son Kenneth Rearwin (1913-2001).

Kenneth was the only Rearwin to sign any Register. He was one of a handful of Golden Age Register pilots who are known to have lived to see the 21st century (see also Alexander Chase, Harold Boddorff, John Miller, Bobbie Trout, Bill Piper, Jr., Ken Rearwin, Jesse McClure, Cameron Briggs, Busch Voights, and Bob Buck). All these pilots signed one or more of the airfield Registers that are the focus of these Web sites.

There were 21 landings by at least nine different Rearwin aircraft registration numbers. Some of them, like NX44E, have technographies on these Web sites.
