Photo Comment

The NYP was developed from the Ryan M-2 especially for Charles Lindbergh for his Trans-Atlantic crossing. Although similar to the more produced Ryan Brougham, only the tail surfaces and a few wing fittings were common between the two designs. The NYP made its last flight April 30, 1928 from St. Louis to Washington and donated to the Smithsonian Institution. Despite this aircraft being quoted as c/n 1, 29 or 30, it was in fact never issued a Ryan serial number.
