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.
