A small Rearwin airplane landed in the Wes Corlett field, north of Tonganoxie, Wednesday afternoon, and was serviced at the J.C. Laming and Son Garage. The monoplane was a two-passenger plane manufactured in Kansas City, and sells for $1,795. It can land in a 250 ft. space and take off anywhere that a run of 150 ft. is available, and can be serviced at any wayside filling station on automobile oil and gasoline. So it seems our Ford garage is developing into a service station for airplanes as well as automobiles.
