Swallow Aircraft Dallas Spirit

In one last desperate gamble, Jake Moellendick committed all the company's resources to building a Swallow monoplane, the Dallas Spirit, to win the $35,000 1927 Dole Prize for the first civilian flight from California to Hawaii. The Swallow monoplane was one of two that turned back, but a couple of days later during a second attempt to reach Hawaii, the plane was lost nine hours out over the sea. The Swallow Company went down with the Dallas Spirit.
