In 1938, with the so-called ‘golden age of aviation’ nearing its end, the new Ryan Sports Coupe was placed on display at a trade exhibition in Chicago and attracted many admiring glances. Having been shipped to Europe from Australia for a tour, the same is true of Steve Carter’s SCW-145 version
A most unusual and very rare historic aircraft made its first appearance in the UK last September when Steve Carter brought his beautiful Ryan SCW, VH-SCW, to the Goodwood Revival. Steve has owned and flown this machine in Australia since 2012. He flies commercially for an Australian domestic airline and is a very regular visitor to the UK. In 2016 he decided to transport VH-SCW over to Europe so that it could be displayed at several airshows.
