Alexander Eaglerock
Страна: США
Год: 1926


Photographed at Ellsworth A.F.B. recently, a 1928, 100-h.p. OX-5 powered two seat, Alexander Eaglerock, rebuilt in 1954/55 by its current owner, Floyd Hesler.
One of Mantz's first movie jobs involved taxying a "runaway” aircraft (the Eaglerock on the right) into a hotdog stand. The stunt backfired when Mantz jumped out of the Eaglerock and it ran over him, finally colliding with the American Eagle. The resulting broken shoulder troubled Mantz all his life.
A posed shot of a wrecked "SPAD", presumably the “victim” of the pilot of the disguised “German” Alexander Eaglerock taxying by on the left.
