A 1932 Waco UBA airplane has been acquired with funds donated for this aircraft.  Museum Chief Pilot Ben Davidson and Assistant Director Donna Davidson have volunteered to picked up the airplane in Kalamazoo, Michigan and fly it across the country to its new home in Hood River.

This 1932 WACO UBA is making its way to the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. The Waco UBA is unusual in Waco's line in that its single cockpit has side-by-side seating of its pilot and passenger instead of the more common arrangement of separate cockpits, fore and aft. The UBA, with a 210 HP Continental 7-cylinder radial engine, was the top of line model in Waco's "A" series and at $4,895 was quite costly for 1932. As a result only six were sold, mostly to high profile corporations.  Just three of this airplane remain in FAA records and WAAAM is proud to be flying the only one west of the Mississippi River.

The flight plan for the WACO UBA will take the Davidsons over 1700 miles across America. Donna says, "Follow our travels on the WAAAM Facebook page as we barnstorm across the 1700+ miles of fabulous America."

An open cockpit biplane and and two childhood sweethearts!  The Davidson's will celebrate their 29th anniversary on this cross-country adventure.
