The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automoblie Museum's Bird A flying over Hood River. Year: 1929

Acquired with funds from Founding Memberships

Engine: Continental W-670 220HP

The Bird A is a 3-seat airplane with two seats in the front cockpit. It is nearly a sesquiplane (literally a wing-and-a-half) with the upper being much larger than the lower.  Endurance records were set in Bird A’s flown by women, Elinor Smith and “Bobbie” Trout. Charles Lindbergh liked the flight qualities of the Bird well enough to buy one for his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Originally built with a Curtiss OX-5 engine, our Bird A was later fitted with a Continental radial engine for better performance and reliability.
