An excerpt from the Wichita Eagle Monday , January 21, 1985

Wichita just went airplane crazy in the late 1920s.
That same sort of excitement continued at smaller companies through the later years. Clyde Belden, who worked for several companies, remembers when the Knoll Airplane Co. , in business from 1928 to 1929, finished its first plane. "When we finished the Knoll, " Belden said, "they shut the factory down and we all went out there (to the airport) and rode around in it."
