This is one of my favorite rare Ford photos. It is on Virginia Street in downtown Reno, Nevada, on September 13, 1983. For two years, at the start of the National Championship Air Races, the main street was blocked off by the casinos to exhibit the Ford and other planes. The Ford was dismantled and trucked in to the site and then re-assembled.

The only XC-12 ever built. Built by the Capelis Safety Airplane Company, it was registered as NX12762 on 12 Jan 1933, and first flew in the same year. It failed to attract commercial interest, and following a minor accident on 15 Apr 1938 the aircraft was permanently grounded, its registration cancelled in Aug 1938. It was acquired by RKO Studios and its unusual cockpit design was modified to look more like a DC-3. The aircraft was then used as a prop in many movies, most notably in Five Came Back (1939) and The Flying Tigers (1942). It was eventually scrapped circa 1950.

Listed in many online databases as being registered to Friedkin Enterprises at this time, which can be explained by the close association of the Friedkin family with Pacific Southwest Airlines. Kenny Friedkin founded the airline in 1949, together with his wife Jean, who became a director and vice-president of the company. Their son, Tom Friedkin, was a full-time pilot for the airline.

This is the former NACA 137, which was the in-flight launch aircraft for the Douglas D-558-II Skyrocket. Note the Skyrocket launch record board on the nose. Originally delivered to the USAAF in 1945 as 45-21787, then transferred to the US Navy as 84029 in 1947 before joining NACA circa 1949. Withdrawn from use in August 1959 and stored at Davis-Monthan. Acquired by the American Air Museum Society in early 1969, and restored to flying condition at Tucson. Seen here shortly after its ferry flight from Tucson to Oakland, where restoration would continue. First post-restoration flight took place on 27 April 1978.
