Waterhouse & Royer Aircraft Roamair / Romair
McDaneld Roamair / Romair
 
Water-Roam-01
Waterhouse Roamair NC990
 
Designed by William Waterhouse and Lloyd Royer, the 1925 Roamair / Romair 2-3 place open cockpit biplane was built with various engines.
 
Both spellings were chosen, but Royer's steadfast claim of "Romair" is tempered by some photos showing "Roamair" on the tail.
