Throwback Thursday: Dr. Frank Brewster’s last airplane

Look at what we found on the Nebraska Memories archive!

This 9″ x 7″ black and white photograph features a four-seater Ryan-Navion. This propeller-powered airplane was Dr. Brewster’s last airplane. He gave up flying practice in 1937. Later, in 1943, he went to Yankton, South Dakota to learn to fly at the age of 71.

This owned by the Phelps County Historical Society. Check out this photo and more on the Nebraska Memories archive!
