Pitcairn autogyro  

pitcairn pa-18 Fld Ben Fld 6-3-39

A Pitcairn autogyro always attracted an audience, but unfortunately for the pilot of this PA-18, the onlookers aren’t arriving to take in the wonders of his hybrid aerial  machine. The place is Floyd Bennett Field, date, June, 3rd, 1939.  The pilot is standing next to the aircraft and calmly unbuckling his helmet.  One of New York’s finest has arrived via Harley Davidson.
