Designated Duo-4, named Olympic and registered X962Y, the aircraft was first flown by test pilot Frank Clarke in 1930. The aircraft was slightly damaged after a nose-over upon landing at Muroc, California, on March 18, 1931, due to financial problems the aircraft was not repaired. In 1934 the company failed.
Subsequently Allan Loughead formed the Alcor Aircraft Corporation (Alcor stood for Allan Loughead Corporation) and repaired the damaged Duo-4. Re-engined with two 230 hp Menasco B-6S Buccaneer six-cylinder air-cooled in-line engines the aircraft was redesignated Duo-6. It was flown in 1934, a year later it crashed again and was not repaired.
