Two deaf planes at a museum

The late Bernard Gross, Flushing, NY, a machinist by
trade, built airplanes as a hobby.

He built these two planes – Deaf Duck and Deaf Hawk
in the backyard of his house. He had a hearing
partner that worked closely with him.

After he retired from his job, he moved to California
with both of his planes.

Both planes were donated to the Wings of History
Air Museum, San Martin, California.

It is not known if both planes are currently
on exhibit or stored away with other exhibits
in the back rooms. Museums normaly rotate their
exhibits to keep interest high among visitors.
