Title: Airplane
Date: 1930-1939
Description: Famous airplane that was once based in Gainesville. Photograph taken of R. I. Tyner's airplane, once based in Gainesville and now on display at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington D. C. In 1930, R. I. Tyner bought the plane when new. The plane was then purchased by Frank W. Ellmore, who taught many early aviators from Gainesville to fly. The plane was then sold to Doug Corrigan, who earned the nickname of "Wrong Way Corrigan," who ultimately donated the plane to the Smithsonian.
