NC667K

Submitted

NC667K (N667K), a Stearman Model 4E-1 Speedmail Junior being flown by owner Gary Peters, turns toward the Carson City Airport's T-Hangar ramp after arriving at KCXP. Peters' Speedmail is the oldest Model 4 in existence. It was delivered to the Richfield Oil Company on October 28, 1929, and the livery seen above replicates the scheme the aircraft had in the 1930s. * The company that was known as Richfield Oil in 1929 has evolved, through mergers, corporate acquisitions, etc., into today's Atlantic Richfield Company, better known to everyone as ARCO. *

To read an interesting article of NC667K's history that was written by previous owner/pilot Sarah Wilson, click on the link below ...

This Stearman Speedmail was one of five that were together at CXP. Several of them are now in San Diego where they will begin a 100th Year Commemorative Air Mail reenactment trip just two days from today (on May 13, 2018). I've included a link below that gives details, including scheduled stops, about the upcoming event.
