Biographical / Historical
The Keystone K-78 Patrician was a twenty passenger tri-motored monoplane, powered by Wright Cyclone engines. The Patrician was introduced in late 1928, and embarked on a cross country trip from New York to the Pacific coast and back. A production run of ten aircraft was started in 1929 as there was interest from both Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT) and Wright Aeronautical Corporation for aircraft; however orders for additional airplanes were soon canceled due to the economic problems of the Stock Market's collapse.
