I found a copy of “List of commercial and touring aeroplanes registered at the Air Communications Bureau” of Mexico . The list is dated November 30, 1931 and includes the following aircraft:, X-BAEN was issued to N698V, serial 1060, engine serial number 865. X-BAES was issued to N11868, serial number 1236, engine serial number 1125. X-BAEU was issued to N11869, serial number 1239, engine serial number 1126.
I just uploaded a photograph of this aircraft taken at the crash scene in the Netherlands. The aircraft crashed on January 28, 1934. and the photograph came from the accident report. The report is in Dutch and I am trying to get it translated. Select All Aircraft above and then select the photograph for N10923.
Recently I received an email from Bob Woods. He found curtisswrightjunior.com while searching information on the CW-1. He was researching his grandfather, Autrey Monsey, who lived in San Angelo, Texas. His grandfather and another a man named Truitt Young were killed in the wreck in N10998 on November 20, 1932. He sent me copies of the death certificate which gave a narrative of the accident. He also sent a copy of an estate inventory that shows that Autrey owned two aircraft. In addition to 10998 serial number1176 that was wrecked, he owned 10993 serial number 1171. Also provided to me was court document that reveals that 10993 was sold to Luther Reed on October 20, 1933 for a sum of $150 with an interesting stipulation: “… as a part of the consideration for the sale of such aeroplane that the same will be put into licensable condition by the purchaser within six months of this date …”
Thanks for the information Bob. Because of you we have information on two more aircraft.
