In mid-1929, Henry A. “Tony” Little bought one of the first Warner-powered “Monosport” for sport-flying and air-racing. In approximately 3 years time, the little “Monosport” and its deft pilot had completed in 87 closed-course races, finishing first in 51 events and second in 27 events. This “fast-flying duo” were also contenders in 7 cross-country derbies, taking a first in 3 of them and a second in two of them. Such performance and unflinching stamina was not unusual in Mono-built aircraft.

I had an inquiry about the status of “Miss Moline”, Phoebe Omlie’s Monocoupe, which according to the FAA registry is owned by Ed Saurenman. Here is a picture from a Sport Aviation article back in 2004. Does anyone know if there has been progress on bringing this ship back to life?
