There is no data for Fairchild NC14364 in the archives of the National Air & Space Museum (NASM), Washington, DC. This is because the airplane is still registered with the FAA.

NC14364 landed once at Tucson, Monday November 12, 1934. This brand new airplane was flown solo by Lonnie Faunce. He was westbound from El Paso, TX to Los Angeles, CA.  No reason was given in the Register for his flight, but pilot Faunce was VP at the Warner Co., which was a major supplier of engines to Fairchild. At his link, you can see a chart of Faunce's cross-country voyage with this airplane.

This airplane is a Fairchild 24 C8, serial number 2627. It was manufactured during 1934 and left the factory with a Warner engine. It is still registered with the FAA and owned by a gentleman in Brooklyn, NY. According to FAA records, its airworthiness status was revoked at an undetermined date, so we can assume it is not flying.

Below, NC14364 in 1935, location unknown. I have no further information about this airplane. Note the gas bowser in front of the airplane.
