Next up is another Scissors & Planes product- #481-482. The double designator reflects the fact that Bruno has provided both the long and short wing versions on the sheet.
Flown by Howard Hughes, the short wing version set a world's landplane speed record of 352.39 mph on Sept 13, 1935.
In the extended span version he then, on Jan 17, 1937, set Los Angeles to New York record (7 hrs 28 min) 332 mph average speed.
