MANUFACTURERS OF AIRCRAFT THAT ARE SIGNED IN THE REGISTERS, 1925-1942

The Registers of Delta Mike Airfield, Inc. record landings by thousands of individual aircraft. These aircraft comprise 160 unique manufacturer marques, or brands. Each brand recorded in one of the Registers is listed in the the table below.

This table is a direct linking source to the Web sites that enables you to go directly to an aircraft manufacturer. From there, and from the AIRPLANES button at top right of each Web page, you can link to the individual airplanes on the sites that landed at Tucson. Note that 185 pilots failed to identify the brand of aircraft they were flying. Numbers are approximate, as new data are entered regularly to the databases.

The numbers in the second column are the numbers of landings made by that brand of aircraft at the Airfields between 1925 and 1942. Another way of saying this is that there were 40 landings by Aeromarine aircraft and 308 by Lockheed aircraft. This number may include multiple landings by the same airplane. For example, the 308 Lockheed landings were made by at least 119 different airplanes. And, of 475 landings by Fokker aircraft, 95 of them were by Universal NC3317.

YOU CAN HELP

I'm looking for information about all these aircraft brands, especially inside information you don't find in textbooks (see, for example, the link to Inland).

I'm interested in contemporary aerial views of the manufacturing facilities, photographs of company principals of the era, and images of new aircraft models on the ramp at the factory.

If you have have information of this type you'd like to share, please use this FORM to contact me. That goes, too, for hyperlinks to relevant information (URLs).
