Miss Los Angeles, built by Lawrence Brown for the 1934 Nationals. Painted a scarlet red, she sported a 300hp Menasco engine and turned an impressive 243.14 mph in the Shell Speed Dashes that year. Miss L.A. came in second in the '34 Thompson race at 213.25 mph. As with many planes of the era, Miss L.A. was lost in another tragic crash that killed pilot Lee Williams when she stalled at the first pylon in the Greve race of '39.
