The selling of aircraft kits grew rapidly in the 1920s, and the “Lincoln Sport” promised to be one of the better ones. Assembled examples were also on offer.

Unfortunately the Great Depression killed off this enterprise, and only plans were made available. They are still available, but as a home-built it was a challenge. Few “Lincoln Sports” remain.

Ours was flown, then it was stored outside for many years, before donation to the Museum. It was in poor condition and in addition to complete reconditioning of the wings a completely new fuselage had to be built. Restoration work was mainly conducted by Vern Turley.
