Come see the only vultee V-1a in the world!

The original design on what was to evolve into the Vultee V-1A Transport was completed by Vance Breese and Gerald Vultee in Detroit, Michigan, in 1931. Jerry Vultee, who was Chief Engineer at Lockheed Aircraft Company, was transferred to the Detroit Aircraft Corporation in 1929 when this concern gained controlling interest in Lockheed. While there, he joined Breese on the preliminary V-1 design. The general conception with six to eight passengers was not a unique enterprise in those days. However, the design that came from these men was exceptionally forward and of advanced concept.
