In an earlier post, “Interesting Fact on N11851 Serial Number 1225” I was looking for information on the Augustine R-4-40 engine. Select “Engine” above and go to “Augustine R-4-40” and see what I have found.
In going through some paperwork on Serial 1225, FAA records show that for a couple of years (1932 – 1933) this plane was licensed “Experimental” as it was demonstrating the use of an Augustine R-4-40 engine. Elsewhere in the file, it states that it was a two-cycle air-cooled engine. At that time it was registered to a Norman P. Augustine of Buffalo New York. It is interesting that the registered owner and the engine name are the same. Anyone know about an Augustine engine?
Mystery 6 is going to include a number of photographs that I am trying to find the registration number, serial number, date of photo or place of photo. Select Mysteries above and then select Mystery 6 – Unknown Aircraft.
Thanks in advance.
I just up-loaded historical information on N683V, Select All Aircraft above. Then scroll down to 683V and select the logo in the left column.

Does any one know where I can get microfilm printed? I finally found a reader at one of the local libraries, but it doesn’t print blueprint size.
