Details: This is an archival photo of a pilot Frank Hawks in front of a Sky Chief airplane.
Frank Monroe Hawks (March 28, 1897 - August 23, 1938) served in the U.S. Army in World War I and was known during the 1920s and 1930s as a record breaking aviator, using a series of Texaco-sponsored aircraft, setting 214 point-to-point records in the United States and Europe. Prolific in the media and continually in the 'public eye', in the 1937 The Mysterious Pilot movie serial, Hawks was billed as the fastest airman in the world. A popular saying from the time, was 'Don't send it by mail... send it by Hawks.' After retiring from a career as an air racer, he died in 1938, flying an experimental aircraft.
