Waco NC11440

Waco NC11440 landed at Tucson on September 6,1933 flown solo by Bob Wolf. The airplane bore S/N 3497 and was manufactured in 1931. It was owned by Mid-South Airways, Inc. Memphis, TN. Mid-South Airways was founded in 1928 at Armstrong Field and operated by Register pilot Phoebe Omlie and her husband. It offered round-trip connection to Chicago, IL three times per week for $60. Charles Lindbergh landed at Armstrong Field in 1927, as he did at Tucson, during his U.S. tour with the "Spirit of St. Louis".

Based in Los Angeles, CA, Wolf was homewardbound from El Paso, TX. He must have made an early start from El Paso, because his time of arrival at Tucson was recorded as 8:15AM.

The dates and locations of the images above are unknown. But it is clear they were taken well apart because of the difference in paint schemes, cockpit coaming and engine cowling. Interestingly, notice what looks to be a nose-over incident in the image above, left.
