Photograph showing pilot Tex Rankin leaning out of the cabin of a Stinson Detroiter monoplane, the On-to-Oregon, to shake hands with Maurice L. Smith, manager of Jantzen Beach. The photograph was taken on Sunday, August 17, 1930, at the Rankin airfield in Portland before Tex Rankin and his brothers, Dick Rankin and Dud Rankin, began their first attempt to set an endurance flying record. Jantzen Beach financed the effort. The attempt begun August 17 was one of four tries, all unsuccessful, that the Rankins made that month.
