Pilot Grevemberg landed at Tucson Sunday, August 3, 1930. He flew Pitcairn NC96W. He carried a single passenger, Margery Doig, who was a charter member of The Ninety-Nines. Pilot Grevemberg, passenger Doig and NC96W can be seen on this site at this link. Grevemberg can be seen here at the Klein Archive on this site.

Below, an undated news article from the Connecticut area (probably Bridgeport) that summarizes Grevemberg's motivation for flying and his experience. He had just entered the life of Magery Doig as her flight instructor (please direct your browser to Doig's page to learn about her flight instruction). Note that this article mentions the Lincoln-page airplane exhibited in the link above.

Grevemberg and Doig were westbound to Los Angeles, CA, probably so that Margery could compete in the 1930 Women's Class A Pacific Derby between Long Beach, CA and Chicago, IL. She did compete, but, unfortunately, was forced out of the race at Emporia, Kansas by an engine fire.

Grevemberg competed in Event 22, the Men's 800 cu.in. five mile course. He placed 4th, out of the money. Both of them flew the Pitcairn (with J-6 engine) in their events. It was identified with race number 2.
