Faulkner Buys an Airplane
With the temporary windfall of his Hollywood earnings, Faulkner
decided to fulfill a lifelong dream to learn how to fly. Though
in 1918 he had been a cadet in training in the Royal Air Force
in Canada, it is doubtful that he ever flew solo. In 1933 he bought
a 210 H.P. Waco C Cabin Cruiser and began taking flying lessons
in Memphis. The following year, Faulkner faced tragedy when his
youngest brother, Dean, died in a crash of the airplane, which
Faulkner had given to him.
