What were some of our airplanes that landed at East St. Louis? The dropdown menus below can be used to list them by type or by registration number.
The aircraft were as varied as their pilots; their itineraries and histories are equally as interesting and uplifting; sometimes equally as tragic.
Some were owned or flown by early aviation entrepreneurs, such as Les and Martie Bowman who worked for the Waco factory in Troy, OH. Some were old like the Curtiss JN-4D NC845. Others were new like the various Wacos flown by the Bowmans.
Some were used for air tours and races (the 1929 Gardner Trophy Race), endurance and other aviation events. In fact, many other landings between May 29 and June 1, 1929 were in association with an aircraft show held at St. Louis, MO as well as the Gardner event. Most of the aircraft were identified by their registration numbers as well as their make and model.
