Description : Amelia Earhart's second airplane was this Glendale-built Kinner Airster, c. March 1923. It was very much an experimental proposition. The engine was a Kinner-copy of the Wright "Gale", forerunner of the "Whirlwind", but it was anything but a success. It threw more oil than it consumed and vibrated excessively. The experience gained from Earhart's flying helped Kinner build a better engine and by 1930 he was a leader in the field. Source : 1 Page of 1:...
