Photo Comment

In 1936 the US Navy acquired one example of the L-10 Electra (c/n 1052) and gave it the designation XR2O-1 and serial 0267. It flew as an executive transport for the top brass. That aircraft is now preserved at the New England Air Museum. The airframe seen here is ex-N19HL (which never saw any military service) and is displayed with a fictitious serial in the US Navy scheme in use at that time.
