West Indian Aerial Express Keystone K-47A  (NC)1612    (c/n  137)


                                                  This ancient Keystone Pathfinder was the pride of the fleet of West Indian Aerial Express
                                                  registered in Santo Domingo, Domincan Republic.  It flew a route from Santiago, Cuba to
                                                  San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1927/8.  However, without the luxury of an Air Mail contract the
                                                  company was forced to sell out to Pan American in December of 1928.   The Keystone was
                                                  powered by three 220 h..p. Wright J-5 Whirlwinds.
