Built by Geoff Wickner. Had to use an 80hp Anzani when he could not obtain the intended 40hp engine leading to official concern the airframe was overstressed. First flight January 25, 1931. Wickner forced to sell the aircraft which then had its CoA withdrawn in 1932. The Wicko was followed by the Lion and then the Wizard. Wickner moved to the UK where he designed and built 13 Foster-Wickner Wicko monoplanes - same name, different design. A replica of the original Wicko is displayed at Queensland Air Museum.

Named from Greek mythology, the Atalanta was a medium-sized four-engined airliner which carried up to 17 passengers, but only nine on long routes. G-ABTM was the eighth and final example and after brief service with Imperial Airways it was transferred to Indian Trans-Continental Airways as VT-AEG Aurora. It ended up in the Royal Indian Air Force as DG454 and was lost in a crash on 6 April 1942. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

The US fiscal year-based serial system started in FY 1922. The AS prefix stood for Air Service. The Eberhart Steel Products Company from Buffalo, NY built about 50 SE.5s for the USAAS using British-made parts. Interestingly this airframe, as NC4488, was used in the filming of the war movie Hell's Angels and it survived to become G-BLXT in the UK. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum

'Captain Hawks leaving Vancouver airport for Los Angeles.' The fourth of the five Travel Air R racing aircraft had longer-span wings and Frank Hawks, who clearly was not superstitious, used Texaco 13 to set some 200 'speed records' between various cities. The text on the fuselage reads:'This plane has traveled 100,000 miles at an average speed of 192 m.p.h. on inter city flights in the U.S., Canada and Europe.' Hawks crashed it on 16 April 1932, but it was repaired and is preserved in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Photo by: Stuart Thomson / City of Vancouver Archives

Barkley-Grow Aircraft of Detroit first flew the T8P (Transport, 8 Passenger) in April 1937. It had a very unorthodox wing construction and fixed landing gear. Skis or floats could easily be fitted, the floats coming with an additional central tailfin. Only eleven T8P-1s were built. Yukon King was one of three delivered to Yukon Southern.
