WACO UBA NC12449

Waco NC12449 landed at Tucson either April 21 or 22, 1932 flown by Martie Bowman (date inferred from the Register, as she did not cite her arrival date or time). Based in Los Angeles, CA she was westbound from El Paso, TX to Los Angeles. She was in a flight of two. The other airplane, Waco UEC NC12456, was flown by her husband, Les Bowman. An image of 12456, Les and Martie is available at Les' link.

NC12449 is still registered with the FAA. It bears S/N 3600 and it was manufactured in 1932. Another photo of it is available on p. 227 of Juptner vol. 5 (REFERENCES). Martie and Les were probably delivering their airplanes from the factory in Troy, OH to Los Angeles. At the time NC12449 was owned by Waco dealer Troy Flying Service, Oakland, CA.
