Not a Boeing or Thomas-Morse. I beleive this model had a Kinner Radial according to my notes. Any More guesses? Anyone "Out To Win" this one?

I think you've got me on this one. Could it be a Fleet of some kind ?

The lines of the nose and cockpits, and especially the gear arrangement said "Fairchild" to me the moment I saw it. But my Jane's only lists one possible aircraft, the only Fairchild biplane listed, and no pics. So it MIGHT be (not likely) a Fairchild KR-21 or KR-34, previously known as a Kreider-Reisner Challenger C6 or C4, respectively. I couldn't find any possibility under Fleet. But the design says 1930's vintage.
It's definitey not a Stearman or a Waco, though.

I'm pretty convinced it's not the KR-21, as the wingstruts (that a word?) aren't right, and the wheels on the 21 have a teardrop like casing. Also, the 21 has a different engine.
Fairchild KR-21 1930
I suspect you are right on the KR-34, though.

Great pictures and some nice guesses,:D but they're all wrong.
The aircraft in the photo is a Meyers OTW (One To Win) from 1942. The fuse is aluminum skinned like a modern Cessna. I was going to rub out the tail number, but no one seemed to notice it due to my poor quality photo. I went to AvWeb after my intial post to reseach the type and motor.

Its a Waco
01-08-2002, 07:36 PM
Nope, Meyers OTW.
I thought it was a baby Stearman when I first saw this one. But on closer examination, I saw the fuse is metal. I still think this one has a Kinner radial engine. I believe I saw a placard somewhere on the engine. Can anyone ID the engine from this (low) quality picture? This photo is one I took at an Antique and Classic Fly-In @ KDLG Darlington SC 2000.

You are right. The NC is pre-WWII (1948)
Post 1948 are prefixed "N"
I couldn't make out the last number on the tail.
I thought it might be the letter "C"
The recorded registration.
NC34323 Meyers OTW
From Aircraft Listings.
I love this quote I found at the site.
"Lady, you want me to answer you if this old
airplane is safe to fly? Just how in the world do
you think it got to be this old?" — Jim Tavenner

I know someone has the answer, but my thought was on the Stearman.

NC34330 This says Warner SS165 series engine. Can anyone verify this visually?
