The transportation gives General
Motors a position in the airplane
field equal to that of the Ford in-
terests, its principal rival in the
automobile field. The Ford corn-
pany, throughthe Stoutrairplane!
division, has been manufacturing
tri-motored metal planes for some
time.. The Packard Motor Car Co.
has been experimenting for months
with a Diesel oil-burning airplane
engine, the first successful demon-
stration of which took place this
yweek.
Incorporated In 1927
In payment for the Fokker stock
General Motors turned over to the
airplane company all the capital,
stock of the Dayton-Wright .Co.,
the assets of which consist of Mc-
Cook Field, Dayton, O., a number
of valuable patents, and cash as-
sets of approximately $6,500,000.
Anthony H. G. Fokker, a large
stockholder in the concern, will
ocntinue in charge of engineering
and design. Mr. Fokker, a native
of Holland, came into prominence
during the war, when he built hun-
dreds of fighting planes for Ger-
many. He came to this country in
1919, and has become a citizen of
the United States.
Fokker planes have been used in
many notable flights in recent
years, including the Byrd trans-At-
lantic, Arctic and Antarctic flights.
