N623V Information posted

I have uploaded information that I have found on the aircraft.  623V was the first aircraft built.  It is interesting to note that the first paperwork shows  that it is a CR-2 Skeeter and the Type is a CR 1.  It also show that the serial number started out at 3002.  There is a copy of a later letter to the Aeronautics Branch of the Department of Commerce from Curtis Wright asking to change  the serial number to 1012 and the designation from the “Skeeter” to the “Junior.”  I see nothing that officially changed to CR-1 to the CW-1.  The CW-1 shows up in later records.  To see my synopsis of the records go to All aircraft above and select the photograph of 623V.
