In 1920, American aviation was still in its infancy, a description applicable to every aspect of the industry. The airplanes of this period were delicate, curious, contraptions. Still, these fragile craft, dwarfed by the magnitude of today’s ships, were amazingly efficient, agile, and thrilling methods of transportation. Few realized then what importance these airplanes would have in the future.
