In 1934, two Vernon boys worked for ten months on the construction of a small open cockpit monoplane. It was a two seater with a 40HP engine that could reach a top speed of 90 mph. Eldon Seymour and Jim Duddle bought the plans for the plane out of a magazine and flew the plane for three years without a license.
