Wilcox White Ghost
 
 Wilcox-WhitGhst
 
Mr. Wilcox is now engaged at the factory of Moore and Morgen automobile body manufactures, 600 W. Fifth Street, here in the City of New York, building two more aeroplanes, which will be ready to try out at Garden City, L. 1., in about two or three weeks. Louis Strang has purchased one of these machine for $4,500. An effort is being made to have the other one ready for the International Aviation Meet at Belmont Park, L. 1., to defend the Cup won by Glen Curtis at Rheims. The machine which Wilcox has called the "White Ghost" will be operated by a professional aviator who has taken part in aero races abroad.

The Wilcox Aeroplane is modelled upon the Farnam style, but has a large number of decided improvements which, according to Captain Baldwin, make it the steadiest aeroplane on the field. Wilcox has formed a stock company for the purpose of building aeroplanes and has registered his machines in the United States Aeronautic Reserve in which about one thousand aeroplanes have been recorded. Aviators making the above registration, agree to give the use of their machines to the Government as scouts, absolutely free, should there be any wars.
Built in 1910 by Phillip W. Wilcox, the White Ghost was a two-place open cockpit biplane powered by a 50hp Rinek engine.
