Driggs-Johnson D-J-1 Bumblebee

11/30/2007. Remarks by Bernhard Klein: "This single-seat aircraft was designed as a racer for the light plane competitions, two were built in 1924. Pictured is the first example with racing number 8, the second one went to the USAAS and received serial 26-205 but no designation, and was tested at McCook Field under Project Number P-443. From this model Driggs later developed the "Skylark" models."
