Hailed by aeronautical experts as the most streamline airplane of that day, Frank Hawks' beautiful and unusual Time Flies speedster was prevented from demonstrating its potential as a record‑smasher by the untimely death of its famous pilot and designer.
An almost legendary figure, Captain Hawks achieved fame in 1930 in his red and hire Travel Air Texaco 13. He established a new U. S. transcontinental speed record as well as numerous intercity records between principal capitals of Europe.
In 1933, Hawks flew his silver Northrop Gama Sky Chief to even faster speeds shattering numerous national and World records.
While demonstrating a Northrop Gama 2‑E attack plane during 1935 in South America, Capt. Hawks was ordered to return home. He flew back so quickly that virtually every intercity record between Buenos Aires and Los Angeles was shattered!
