Tony Riccio Tony in front of his Aristocrat, 102-E, powered by a five cylinder Wright J6 “Whirlwind Five” radial engine. This airplane was built by the General Airplanes Corporation at the manufacturing plant located in Buffalo NY around 1930. (I’m dating this picture between 1936-1937) The back side of the above photo. Another picture of Tony’s Aristocrat. Tony is on the right and an unknown man on the left. Tony on the right, an unknown man on the left, and a Taylor “Cub”, E-2. The Aristocrat is in the background, on the right. Parachute training with a Taylor “Cub”, J-2? Tony getting a little prop wash while the pilot is grinning. I’m not sure why the pilot is out of a running plane, but Tony is on the left fixing his parachute strap. Tony with his new J-3 “Cub”, 1939. Tony pilots the J-3 “Cub” from the rear seat to balance the center of gravity when flying solo. The back side of the above photo.
