WACO RNF NC112Y

NC112Y was purchased by Warner Aircraft Engines of Wayne, MI and used as a demonstrator for their engines, primarily in California. Below, from Andy Heins, a starboard profille of the airplane. The Warner Engines livery is clearly visible.

Another photograph of NC112Y is on Register pilot Lonnie Faunce's Web page. Below, courtesy of Mr. Heins, is the factory delivery sheet for NC112Y. From the sheet we know the airplane was painted vermillion and silver. This was a very handsome ship. It had a Townend ring and front cockpit cover installed at the factory. While they don't appear on the image above, they are present in the photograph exhibited on Faunce's page at the link.

The record of ownership, below, shows the first sale to Warner Aircraft. It sold just seven months later to Colin Hubbard Smith of Bakersfield, CA. It appears to have remained west of Oklahoma until 1945 when the record ends.
