This aircraft was acquired after WWII by George Bogardus, who named her 'Little Gee Bee' and flew her from Oregon to Washington DC in 1947, 1949 and 1951. These three flights helped to convince officials in the CAA and the CAB that amateurs could design and build light aircraft that were safe, reliable, and capable of practical cross-country flights. Legislation was passed in 1952 that sanctioned the registration and operation of amateur-built aircraft, leading on to the founding of the EAA.
