CH-170    Cutiss Condor AT-32-C                           (c/n  53)


                                     Only one Curtiss Condor was operated by Swissair, and it had a short lived history.  Shortly after
                                     delivery, on July 27, 1934, on a scheduled flight from Frankfort to Zurich, the aircraft crashed in a
                                     violent thunderstorm near Tuttlingen on the Swiss-German frontier. The 9 passengers and 3 crew
                                     all perished.   I believe that it had been assigned the new registration HB-LAP at the time of the
                                     accident, but had not yet been repainted as such.
