Chamberlin Air Lines Curtiss CO Condor
NC727K (c/n 5)
Founded by the
famous aviator Clarence Chamberlin, this airline ran a service from New
Boston via Hartford in
1933-34. Chamberlin had made his mark by flying a passenger
multi-millionaire Charles A. Levine) across the Atlantic just days
after Lindbergh's solo flight. Not
only did Chamberlin cross
the Atlantic, but he flew considerably further, landing some 40 miles
of Berlin. There is
some identity mix up with the identity of his air line.
Officially it was named
New York & New England Airways,
but clearly it flew for a while as Chamberlin Air Lines.
When the Depression forced him out
of the scheduled airline business, Chamberlin took his fleet
of four Condors on a barnstorming
tour around the country.
