Buhl LA-1 Bull Pup

See a 1931 Buhl LA-1 Bull Pup at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1931

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Szekley SR-3 45HP

The long-established Buhl Stamping Company of Detroit, Michigan expanded into aviation in 1925. After the stock market crash of 1929 sales of Buhl's well-regarded Airsedan abruptly dried up and they designed this small sport airplane to keep the company afloat through hard times. Sales of the single-seat, shoulder-winged Bull Pup, introduced in 1930, was not enough to keep Buhl Aircraft solvent and it folded in 1933. The Bull Pup was sold with the options of shorter wings for competition, longer wings for high altitude flying and floats. Ours has a rudimentary airspeed indicator atop the right wing.
