Faulkner Buys an Airplane

Faulkner's Airplane
William Boozer Collection
With the temporary windfall of his Hollywood earnings, Faulkner decided to fulfill a lifelong dream to learn how to fly. Though in 1918 he had been a cadet in training in the Royal Air Force in Canada, it is doubtful that he ever flew solo. In 1933 he bought a 210 H.P. Waco C Cabin Cruiser and began taking flying lessons in Memphis. The following year, Faulkner faced tragedy when his youngest brother, Dean, died in a crash of the airplane, which Faulkner had given to him.
