The One And Only Hamilton

Two hangars to the East is Lysdale Aircraft Service. In that hangar rests a piece of aviation history that's even less known than the Minnesota Wing! A one of a kind Hamilton Metalplane, in flying condition, is stored and maintained there. It was operated by Northwest Airlines, and is the last example of this aircraft in the world! Wednesday Gary Lysdale decided to run the aircraft up and take some pictures. Enjoy!

(The interior is immaculate, and accurate. Wicker seats for the passengers!)

(The Northwest logo rests proudly on the side of the aircraft)

(The engine had a very unique sound...)

(It was a rare treat to see the Hamilton run!)
