NEW PHOTOS OF THE MISS DORAN

Recently a reader of Shooting Star sent me pictures of Mildred Doran’s plane, the Miss Doran.   He found a group of photos taken by a mechanic in the twenties of airplanes all over the country.  The photos he sent showed mechanics on ladders working on the engine.  I have seen dozens of photos of the plane, but these were new to me.  What a treat!  I hope that others with pictures from the twenties keep them and do not destroy them as each one is special now that we are approaching 100 years later.  Aviation history needs to be preserved.
