NC14707 was brought to Tucson Sunday December 9,1934. It was flown solo by William T. Piper, Jr. His flight brought him cross-country from Bradford, PA, which he had departed the previous October. He was inbound from El Paso enroute to Phoenix. Please direct your browser to the link to understand the context of Piper's flight and to see additional images of him and his airplane. While in Tucson, he gave what appears to be in his log book, rides to two passengers.

Below, two images of NC14707, probably taken at Long Beach, CA.

Mr. Piper remained in Tucson until the 11th of December, then flew to California via Phoenix. The itinerary for Piper's cross-country flight is long. The itinerary east of Tucson is exhibited on Pipers biography page linked above. West of Tucson his trip becomes circuitous as well. Below is his western itinerary with NC14707.
