Can anyone help identify this vintage aircraft, origin, and possible flight history. Airplane has this number of its wing, NC 7210.

    $\begingroup$ Do you have a picture of this airplane? Or more information? It's difficult to answer without more to go on. $\endgroup$ – GdD Apr 1 '19 at 13:09
  • $\begingroup$ @VtC - It seems pretty clear what's being asked. It may not have been asked well, but with (currently) 2 answers pointing at the same thing, it seems perfectly clear... $\endgroup$ – FreeMan Apr 1 '19 at 13:49

    $\begingroup$ @FreeMan Registration numbers can be reused, can't they? So the plane identified by the two answers isn't necessarily the one the asker is thinking of. $\endgroup$ – David Richerby Apr 1 '19 at 14:10

There is (or was) a Ryan B-1 Brougham of construction number 157 registered as NC7210 according to airhistory.org.uk.

enter image description here


This registration record page says it's a Ryan B-1 Brougham. That's the same company that built the Ryan Lindbergh flew solo across the Atlantic, though it's a different model aircraft. The page linked says a couple aircraft of this model were used in a Lindberg movie, flown by the late Paul Mantz.
