Kinner Sportwing B-2

10/31/2010. In the early 1930s, the Kinner Airplane & Motor Corporation, Ltd. at Grand Central Airport, Glendale, California, USA, introduced a number of open low-wing sport monoplanes, including the Sportwing B-2 in 1933.

Designed by Max Harlow, the two-seat aircraft was of wood and metal construction, covered with fabric, and powered by an 125 Kinner B-5 five-cylinder air-cooled radial engine. Only eight B-2s were produced, as were three B-2Rs, fitted with an 160 hp Kinner R-5: including this one owned by 1930s-1940s film actor George Brent (born George Brendan Nolan in Shannonsbridge, Ireland), pictured here with the aircraft.
