TRAVEL AIR A-6000-A NC9975

Registration Number NC9975

EXPORTED TO PANAMA

This airplane is an A-6000-A Travel Air (S/N 1096; ATC #116) manufactured on January 27, 1930 by the Travel Air Company, Wichita, KS. It came from the factory with a Pratt & Whitney Wasp engine (S/N 1654) of 425 HP.  It was a six-place airplane, weighing 5,250 pounds gross.

It sold on July 18, 1930 to the Carl B. King Drilling Company, Tulsa, OK. We find the airplane at Tucson on July 31, 1930 piloted by Clare N. Kingsbury.  He carried two passengers, his boss Carl B. King and Bud Vencil.  They were westbound from Tulsa, OK to Los Angeles, CA.

The company flew the airplane until January 4, 1935, when they sold it to Charles H. Babb of Glendale, CA with 550:25 total flight hours. Babb reconditioned it and installed, on March 30, 1935, P&W Wasp engine S/N 1893.

Babb sold the airplane on September 5, 1935 to Enrique Malek of David, Panama (less engine). It was exported to Panama in September 1935.  The final note from Babb on March 5, 1936 was that the airplane has, “since been completely washed out.”
