Transport Curtiss Condor T-32 NC12353
Curtiss developed an all-new biplane airliner (despite the fact that
Douglas and Boeing
were working on monoplane
types at the time) and elected to name it after the earlier Condor.
It was, however, a c totally
different machine and, although a biplane, incorporated many of the
concepts. American Airlines acquired a fleet of them when
and Eastern Air Transport ordered five, one of which is seen above.
offered a 12 hour service between New York and Miami. (It can
almost take that long
today if one doesn't take a
direct flight, opting for the cheaper hub-to-hub concept!).
