The “sister” ship of the famous “Ryan N.Y.P.” Spirit of Saint Louis, piloted by Charles “Lucky” Lindberg. The first solo, non-stop New York to Paris flight occurred in May of 1927. The world’s interest in aviation and the Brougham sky-rocketed. Production was up to three planes a week, everyone wanted a B-1, which sold for $9,700.00.
The aircraft is made of welded chrome-moly steel tubing, solid spruce spars and covered with fabric. Note the original wicker bucket and bench seats. The swirled cowling was designed to hide the waves and bumps of the hand hammered metal and became a standard feature on the Brougham.
This is the only flyable Ryan B-1 in the world.
