Steve Wittman's famous D-12 Bonzo Thompson Trophy racer, on display at the 1979 EAA Fly In. In five years of racing this aircraft, from 1935 to 1939, Wittman placed second, third and fifth (twice). In the 1937 Thompson Trophy race, he led 18 of 20 laps, before falling back due to a rough engine. This airplane is now registered N4486E and is on display at the EAA AirVenture Museum.
