1928 Folkerts Henderson Highwing – 8902

The Folkerts Henderson Highwing is an early, one-of-a-kind homebuilt aircraft. Clayton Folkerts worked at Monocoupe and was experienced in aircraft design and construction. The Highwing is made almost entirely of wood. The metal parts are the axle, tailskid, cabane struts, control surface hinges, wire trailing edges, and hardware. The engine weight of 100 pounds is almost half the total weight of the plane. The aircraft carries a registration number of 8902, but this registration predates the “N” number system. The Highwing was grounded by aviation law changes in 1931 and ceased flying operations. It was restored for display by EAA Chapter 94, Rudd, IA in 1965. .

Donated by: Mrs. Clayton Folkerts, Iowa Falls, IA
