Caption: Bellanca pilots and aeroplane. Italian-US aircraft engineer Giuseppe Mario Bellanca (lower centre, 1886-1960) with two Bellanca pilots and a Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker aeroplane named 'Rosemarie'. The pilots are Shirley J. Short (cockpit, died 1930), and George W. Haldeman (right, 1898-1982). Bellanca developed his first designs in Italy, emigrating to the USA in 1911. He continued to design and build aircraft, and founded the Bellanca Aircraft Company in 1927. Haldeman was the company's chief test pilot and technical advisor from 1928 to 1930. Each man has been labelled by their signatures. Photographed circa 1928.
