Photo #18 -- This photo is from the album of Air Mail Pioneer Peter Arthur Toronto who worked for the U.S. Air Mail Service from 12-18 to 1-20.  Can you identify the plane?   E-mail to: Air Mail Pioneers

Internet viewer Rod Thorsen identifies this plane as the second NW-1"Mystery" racer of  1923 built for racing and promoting Wright's Tornado engines.  His source is "The Speed Seekers" by Thomas G. Foxworth published by Haynes Publishing Group (UK).

Internet viewer Paul Winslow writes: Joe Baugher's extensive list of Bureau Numbers lists Photo #18 as: A6544, Navy-Wright NW-1 Mystery Racer.
