|Here is the Harrington Hawk.
A friend of mine found it up in Dayton, Ohio.
It was in the Air Force Airplane Museum.
How it ended up there I don't know.
The Harrington Hotel still exists in Washington, DC
and they have added the plane to their site too!
Anybody have any more information on this plane,
just email me and let me know!
|This is a version that Jerry Hall found in his
files, he doesn't remember exactly where he got
it. He thinks it was at a contest. Looks like
they trimmed the rudders some though!
The logo offers a nice clue though....anybody
know what museum it refers to?

I ran accross your site looking for this paper airplane. Years ago in Junior High, about 1983, I was in a
hobby airplane, extra curricular class at the school. The teacher had ordered these from the hotel and
passed them out. I then wrote to the hotel and was sent a large envelope loaded with light brown
printed paper copies of this plane. The man in charge of the hotel was a Dr. Charles McCutcheon.
According to what I see on the net, he was in charge back to 1914. Which would have made him quite
elderly. From what I was told, he was the creator of this paper airplane. I figured I would write to let
Many thanks to Mike for the info!
