See a 1929 Curtiss Robertson Robin B at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1929

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: OX-5 90HP

Designed and first flown in 1928 by Curtiss Aircraft, this airplane was produced by the joint venture of Curtiss-Robertson in Anglum (St. Louis) Missouri. The Robin was one of the earliest airplanes to seat the pilot inside a cabin. It was also built with other engines including the 6-cylinder Curtiss Challenger radial and the 5-cylinder Wright J-6-5 radial. Many noteworthy flights were made with versions of the Robin including Red Jackson’s 400 consecutive rolls in 1929, the Key Brothers’ record endurance flight of more than 27 days in June 1935 and Douglas “Wrong Way” Corrigan’s Atlantic Ocean crossing in 1938. WAAAM's Robin is nicknamed the Blueprint Robin because it was never modified as so many of them were.
