Partridge Biplane

Charles Dickenson successfully tendered for the Twin Cities-Chicago mail contract in 1926 with three Wright J-4 Lairds, an open cockpit biplane built by Henry C. Keller, and a cabin biplane built by Elmer Partridge. A few minutes after taking off on the Dickenson company’s inaugural flight on 7 June 1927, Elmer Partridge crashed and died in his home-made aircraft.
