In 1923, Ray Page, a pioneer airman, became president and founder of Lincoln Aircraft. The Lincoln Aircraft Company of Lincoln, Nebraska was currently rebuilding and remodeling the war surplus Standards into the more versatile Lincoln-Standard.
During the early years of aviation, history was always in the making. Charles A. Lindberg learned to fly at Lincoln Aircraft Co.
Victor Roos from Swallow Aircraft joined Page and they developed the LP-3 to satisfy the growing demand by the private sector for an attractive and useful aircraft. (It is often noted that the LP-3 looks quite similar to the Swallow.)
Known mostly in the west, the LP-3 was the first US Mail carrier. It was originally equipped with the OX-5 Engine.
Acquired by Yanks in August of 1996.
