Golden Age of Flight
The Bird biplane was produced as a utility aircraft by the Brunner-Winkle Aircraft Corp. of New York. The aircraft carried ATC# 239 and originally sold for just over $4,000.00 in 1929.
Construction and materials were typical of the era except for the Sesqui-plane wing arrangement; with the upper wing covering twice the area of the lower wing the Bird became an exceptionally stable aircraft.
The Bird was capable of a good rate of climb, outstanding slow speed performance and an unbelievably short take off capability of less than 100 feet.
