Michigan Aircraft 1 aka Breese-Dallas X 1933 = 5pClwM; 450hp P&W Wasp C [X12899] c/n 1. A very involved, albeit relatively short, career began with its registration application on 2/13/33 by Breese & Dallas (pres: Vance Breese, secy: Charles Dallas, chief engr: W A Mankey) at the French Rd address; lien was held by Marion M Dallas at Dallas Motor Sales Inc ("New and Used Automobiles and Airplanes"), 8865 Mack Ave, Detroit. In a letter to CAA 6/7/33, Mankey said the plane was Michigan Co Aircraft Model 1. On 3/15/34 it was sold to Select Motor Sales, 3946 Woodward Ave, Detroit, at which Charles Dallas reappeared as secertary-treasurer in applying for an NX license 6/4/34 "for running further testing." On 10/24/34 it was sold to Lambert Aircraft Co at Robertson MO, and was to be known as Lambert Model 1344 with a 500hp P&W Wasp. However, it was to be bought back by Select Motors, but Lambert's Tom Towle said in a letter to CAA 1/28/35, "Deal never consummated." Wait, we're not done yetthe story continues at the Breese-Dallas entry.

Multiplane (1910) SEE Jacobs
1929 = 1p unknown type experimental to test tiltable wing(s); Curtiss Challenger. Built by Commercial Aircraft Corp (Bridgeport CT) for Multiplane [X257V] c/n 1, cancelled 12/22/30 on expiry of license.
Mulzer SEE Locomotive
Cootie aka Baby Vamp 1921 = 1pOB; 28hp Lawrance; span: 18'0 length: 12'0" load: 250# v: 90/x/45; ff: 7/9/21. Laminated-plywood monocoque fuselage; patterned somewhat after Longren AK. A first experiment by Mummert, at the time an engineer with Curtiss Co, to see just how far the dwarfing process could be carried out before losing performance and speed. Diminutive plane was flight tested by Bert Acosta.
Mummert Mini-plane (Eaton Chronicles)
Mercury S 
V-2 Sport Plane aka Sport 1923 = 1pOlwM; 18.5hp chain-driven Harley-Davidson; span: 26'0" length: 14'1" v: 65. Slab-sided, laminated-plywood fuselage, cantilever wing. POP: 1 [520K] c/n 3. Won speed and efficiency competitions at Dayton OH in Oct 1924. Stored 1926-27, then sold. Repowered in 1929 with 45hp Anzani, it crashed the following year in a low-altitude spin, killing pilot Homer Goodier.
1927 = 7pOB; 360hp Wright-Hisso; span: 48'0" length: 26'10". POP: 1, carried 6p in large front cockpit (on a demo flight from Kenosha to Fond du Lac it carried four more people perched on the wings). Sheet steel-covered fuselage. Used for barnstorming throughout the Midwest until c.1935, at which point it was traded for an automobile. SEE ALSO Kiser for a curious interrelation, except in dimensions.
A-1 1934 = 2pOM; 90hp LeBlond.  c/n A-1. Reg cancelled 11/15/38.
M-1, M-2, M-3 1918 = Conversions of Hisso-powered Standards or Curtiss Jennies. At least two M-3s were produced[7082, 7467] were registered with c/ns 2 and 4.
M-4 1930 = 5pOB with 220hp Wright J-5, possibly more war surplus conversions. [76V] c/n 6;  c/n ??, with Hisso.  (above) also registered as M-4. This might be a copy or possible rebuild of NAS Air King  c/n 27, which Murchio Flying Service owned..

Murphy SR3500 [C-GBZD] (Murphy Ltd)
M-7 1929 = 1pM; 80hp LeRhône rotary; span: 33'8" length: 21'6". [249K] c/n 1; reg cancelled 12/22/32. Murray, an aircraft mechanic, also appeared as engine manufacturer, Aircraft Holding Co, in 1927.
c.1940 = 1pOhwM; 40hp Continental A-40. Speculation is that this was prototype for the enigmatic "Peterson Special" racer. POP: 1 [N5829N]registry also appears as Vapor Trail.
JN2-D1 Jenette 1961 = 1pOB; 50hp Ford A; span: 25'0" length: 15'0". Half-scale replica of Curtiss JN4-D2.
ML-60F Flivair c.1977 = 1pChwM; 60hp Franklin 4AC-150A; span: 30'0" length: 16'0" (18'4" with the wings folded back) load: 329#. A filial connection with 1929 William Roland Murray? Is the same?
No information found about this mystery ship or Mr Murray, but a Joseph Carnes (Hillsboro IN) built a lightplane in 1931. However, this ship appears to be more like early '20s, so his involvement is speculation. There's also a somewhat foreign look about it, so we're using a thumb tack to hold this entry in place for now.
Sport 1929 = 3pOB with 125hp Super Rhône; ff: 7/9/29 (p: F Womack). Durard Murray. POP: 3 [83M, x, 15E] c/n 100/102; IMA registrations cancelled 3/1/39. The first was reportedly rebuilt from the fuselage of a WW1 "fighter" that crashed at an Iola County Fair (a photo of the wreckage shows a Thomas-Morse) with Durard-designed or -scavenged other components. The second ship apparently was never licensed. Also noted in several old registration records as Murray-Yarton ((Durard) Murray & (Russell) Yarton Aircraft Co, Iola KS) but Yarton remains at this time a mystery, and where, how, or even if, he fits into this picture needs to be solved. Suspicion is that he was a vagrant CAA typo that somehow ended up in this record. Documented information was received 4/24/06 from Jeff King, grandson of Fritz Womack, which clarifies and amends much of our basic data.
1911 = 1pOB; no data. Curtiss copy appeared at the Grant Park Aviation Meet in Aug 1911.
Midget Mustang 1992 = Continued kit production of Long/Bushby Midget Mustang.
Mustang II (Mustang Aeronautics)
Mutual Blackbird At Gillespie Field, San Diego [X87M] (Ron Dupas)
W-LB-50 1929 = ChwM; 60hp Detroit Air Cat (LeBlond). [X110N].
Annular c.1927 = Circle-wing concept with two light engines on outriggers with tractor props that got this tricycle-gear, cart-mounted creation rolling along the ground, as seen on a Discovery tv program, "Strange Planes, Strange Shapes," but vertical conquest, if any, was not mentioned. Three doughnut-shaped wings on top, the fuselage was an open frame with pilot in an open chair up front. An angular rudder at the tail wore its number .
Helicopter 1904-26 = Myers filed a patent for a helicopter in 1897, and a prototype was built in 1904, according to the book, Helicopters Before Helicopters. It had three lifting "screws" (3'4" diameter) and two laterally-placed tractor propellers (6'0" diameter), each driven by a two-cylinder enginepossibly those lifting screws were driven by the same engines? The book says nothing about results of tests, but that "several years later it appeared as part of a machine with multiple annular surfaces mounted above the helicopter".
Helicopter 2 19?? = A coaxial-rotor helicopter built around the fuselage of a Thomas-Morse . Two 18' diameter lifting propellers were driven by a 100hp Gnôme. A group of vanes was used for control, located on booms on either side of the fuselage and at the aft end, and two additional vanes were mounted forward of a powerplant in the nose. All those were actuated by the pilot's stick. Construction was supervised by none less than Vincent Burnelli, who also was the pilot. In tests at Curtiss Field, the machine flew a distance of 1000' at a height of about 10 feet, touching the ground at intervals, suggesting inadequate controllability. Helicopters Before Helicopters also has a photowithout further informationof a tilt-wing variant that seemingly proceeded the pure helicopter, and: "Following this effort, Myers dropped his helicopter development to perform services as a patent attorney."
Midget 1924 = 1pOB; span: 16'0" v: 90. No other data found on this mini-plane with "V" wing atruts and rigid truss bracing.
2 1933 = 2pOMFb; 50hp Continental.  c/n 11-M.
M-1 1950 = 1pChwM; 150hp Lycoming O-320; span: 24'0" length: 18'0" load: 400# v: 140/120/55 range: 210. Take-off run: 215'. Built of parts "from a dozen airplanes," it was a popular performer at fly-ins. [N42963].
M-2 1967 = Reworked Cassutt III as Goodyear racer [N429PM]. Continental O-200 modified for inverted flight. An extra rib added on each side and the sport airfoil used, larger fin and ruder, lengthened landing gear to accommodate a longer prop, and a Midget Mustang canopy. Recently acquired and restored by Giles Henderson. (Data: John Myers.)
