Vintage Aviation Advertisements - Eaglerock
This past week I was sorting some early period, vintage magazines from the 1928 and 1929. Some of the rare gems I pulled from the advertisement pages were of the Alexander Eaglerock biplanes. The text from one of the ads caught my attention... "The response to the throttle - the quick takeoff - the life - the movement - the control at all speeds - the spirit - the color - the things you have always wished for in an airplane..." I love it! "The Life"!! Were they talking about the life of a pilot? The life of an aircraft owner? The life that comes with the status of an aviator flying the skies in an Eaglerock? I want to think is all of those! Enjoy these classy advertisements.
When I did some research to find a photo of a current flying Eaglerock I found Walter Bowe's beautiful example listed for sale on Barnstormers.com. Thank you to Walter for sending me a nice air-to-air photo of him flying his Eaglerock and allowing me to publish it. What a time machine! Interested in owning this rare ship? Look up Alexander Eaglerock on Barnstormers.com.
