Neilsen Steel Aircraft Co NC-1 Golden Bear / Coach

Neilson NC-1 NX883E
Designed by Richard Korman, the three-place cabin Neilsen Steel Aircraft Co NC-1 Golden Bear, or Coach, was a fabric-covered Ryan B-3 type. Subsequent models were planned to be metal-clad.
Priced at $7,500 in 1928, it was destroyed by an angry crowd at a "thrill show" at Oakland Speedway in Aug 1939 after its performance failed to meet their expectations.
A second one, with 300hp Wright J-6, was reportedly under construction at the time, but its history is unknown.
