WACO ATO "Taperwing"

See a 1928 WACO ATO Taperwing at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1928

Donation: Jerry Wenger

Engine Wright Radial 440 HP

Built by Advanced Aircraft in Troy, Ohio, which later became the Waco Aircraft Company, the "Taperwing" was modified from an original design with the addition of tapered wings. The taperwing was favored for its maneuverability, speed, and flashy design. Three taperwings were entered in the 1928 Transcontinental Derby from N.Y. to L.A. They finished an impressive 1st, 3rd, and 5th. The Taperwing went on to become a popular choice of stunt pilots at air shows and a consistent winner on the air race circuit. Approximately 53 were built.
