I saw a 1929 Travel Air 4000 today and fell in love. I remember seeing Travel Air biplanes at the Biplane Expo in Bartlesville but always thought some were wood fuselage, thought they were $$$$$ rich guy “classics” and not very much performance etc compared to a Waco UPF-7 or Stearman or the like. Well the one that sold in Tulsa auction today certainly didn’t seem like “my granddads” Travel Air. It looked racy and sported a 300hp Lycoming. It was really eye opening to the type. I always loved the Pepsi Travel Air also. Just looking for more info on the type. The one below NC9831 sold for only $64k! Hope this was taken during a take off!
