Mystery Ship: A History of the Travel Air Type R Monoplanes

Under construction during 1928, the aircraft was kept under cover prior to the 1929 Cleveland Air Races.

The builders even went so far to paint the windows on the factory to keep the curious press from seeing it.

Mystery Ship: A History of the Travel Air Type R Monoplanes

The local Wichita newspaper, Wichita Eagle, picked up on the secret program, with one reporter even going so far as to scale a ladder to try to peek into the vents in the factory roof. The newspaper dubbed it the "Mystery Ship", and the name stuck.

Mystery Ship book presents history of each Travel Air Type R monoplane and their colorful pilots including Jimmy Doolittle, Frank Hawks and Pancho Barnes.

The Travel Air Type R "Mystery Ships" were a series of wire-braced, low-wing racing airplanes built by the Travel Air company in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
