CURTISS ROBIN
This handsome little Curtiss Robin was typical of the golden age of sport flyingbetween the two world wars. Built more than 30 years ago, in 1929, it has beenrestored to flyable condition. About 700 of these famous cabin planes were made,powered by the reliable Curtiss OX-5 engine of 115-horsepower. It cruised at 85miles per hour, and could fly nearly 15 miles on a gallon of gasoline. In 1938,when speed flying coast-to-coast was the rage, a smiling young daredevil namedDouglas Corrigan built extra fuel tanks into his dilapidated, nine-year-old CurtissRobin, and chugged from California to New York. A week later he told people heplanned to go back to California, and took off. But he headed east instead of west,and 28 hours later landed in Ireland. I aimed for California, he insisted, butmy compass stuck. I guess I went the wrong way. A chuckling world immediatelychristened him Wrong Way Corrigan.
