1931 Bellanca Pacemaker

This Pacemaker represents the “Miss Veedol,” the aircraft used on the first non-stop trans Pacific flight in 1932. The customer was not concerned with flyable but very concerned with authenticity. They wanted the plane to be outwardly correct even to the landing gear drop system devised by Clyde Pangborn. This aircraft is for static display only, as we have used as much original Bellanca Pacemaker parts as possible in the airframe.
