Orenco F-4 Tourister

05/31/2009. Remarks by Gil Halpin (via Aerofiles): "Produced in 1920, this plane was bought by Daughtery and operated at his field in Long Beach, California, he even got married in the air in it! Later sold to Paul Mantz, who modified it for film work, such as a Vought VE-7 in "Task Force" (1949) and others. It has been seen with fake USN markings and fake s/n A-179. Presently it is preserved at the Kermit Weeks/Fantasy of Flight collection, Polk City, Florida.
