    $\begingroup$ Do you have a picture of this airplane? Or more information? It's difficult to answer without more to go on. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @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... $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @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. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 1, 2019 at 14:10

My step grandfather, Roy Danischefsky, purchased the Ryan B-1 Brougham #157 NC 7210 in Sept 1928 from Mahoney-Ryan Aeronautics for Midwest Airlines (Wisconsin). He flew it for Mid-West as a private charter and to promote flight as a new transportation option. Here is a photo of him in front of the plane.

Also - Here a photo of the plane from San Diego Air and Space Museum Archives

Where is this plane now? I would be VERY EXCITED to know that it is still exists. Many of these planes did not survive.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Aviation.SE and thanks for sharing your story. If you want to know where this plane is now, it would be best to ask that as a separate question (you can link to this one for context). $\endgroup$

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

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.
