    My Dad had a Ryan open cockpit and man was it noisy! Couldn’t hear yourself think..LOL! Exciting and kinda romantic but give me a twin engine Cessna or whatever with a nice closed cabin! Nice photos of Sean Rio and Rory She’s such a strawberry girl…

      Yes, indeed, timerider! Coincidently, I believe Ryan Aeronautical can be seen in some aerial shots in Dive Bomber. It was located across San Dieo Harbor from Coronado’s North Island, in San Diego, near where Lindbergh Field is presently. (Lindbergh actually flew the Spirit of St. Louis out of Coronado.)

      Navion bought Ryan in 1947. This link provides info on Errol’s Navion:
