Hallmark has introduced its 2017 line of keepsake ornaments, which includes this beautiful representation of the 1929 Travel Air Model R “Mystery Ship”.
The ornament, which is the 21st installment of Hallmark’s “Sky’s the Limit” series, represents R614K, the first example of the type which was constructed in secrecy ahead of the 1929 Cleveland Air Races. The aircraft would go on to win the 50-mile free-for-all speed contest with pilot Doug Davis at the controls, but was sadly destroyed by fire in 1931 before competing in the Thompson Trophy Race.
Hallmark’s Mystery Ship ornament measures 4.3″W x 1.3″H x 2.9″D, features a spinning prop and is pre-packaged for easy gift-giving, preservation and storage.
