AIRPLANES THAT LANDED AT PARKS AIRPORT

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.

Please check "What's New on the Site" to see information on airplanes I have recently uploaded. Follow those leads for examples of the types of extended information I envision for this site.

Many of the aircraft and their descriptions, you'll discover through the dropdown menus above, are summarized from my research visits with the National Air and Space Museum historical aircraft listings, available in the archives at the Museum on the Mall and at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport. These lists are hand-written documents, sometimes rich with data, sometimes not. The older the aircraft, the less detail is available, and there are gaps of a decade or more in some planes’ chains of custody. Some are still registered with the FAA today and I have noted that in their histories here and elsewhere on this and the other Web sites comprising the suite.
