'First three planes built by Kinner.' The sole Kinner P Sedan was built for Robert Porter, who managed the Kinner company following Bert Kinner's departure. The second aircraft is a Model R-1 Playboy built for Dr Ross Sutherland according to the photographer's notes, and on the right is a Model K Sportster.

'American Eagle plane at the Glendale assembly plant.' This may refer to the Kinner Airplane & Motor Corporation. With the Kinner K-5 radial engine the A-129, developed from the A-101 by Giuseppe Bellanca, was known as the 'long-nose Eagle'. The photo is dated 1928 or 1929. A-129 referred to the year 1929 but perhaps the type appeared earlier. Certainly NC523 visited Clover Field, Santa Monica on 26 March 1929. Photo by: John Underwood / Glendale Public Library

Four-seat twin-boom metal aircraft designed by Thomas Shelton as the Shelton Flying Wing, although it was not what we call a flying wing today. First flown in Denver, Colorado in 1935 with fixed landing gear which was made retractable later that year. In 1936 the design was sold to the Timm Aircraft Company here at Glendale, but no production ensued. Photo by: John Underwood / Glendale Public Library

The forerunner of all Douglas Commercials. The sole DC-1 was ordered by Howard Hughes for TWA and first flew on 1 July 1933. Here used by the airline for tests before delivery for commercial use on 15 September 1933. Bought by Hughes in 1936. Later to G-AFIF, EC-AGN and EC-AAE being damaged beyond repair in a forced landing at Malaga with Iberia in December 1940. Note the slender slab-sided fuselage, original fin shape and spatted tailwheel. Obtained from Douglas over 50 years ago.
