Default Reply from Museum

Dave, Just heard from the Museum in Sioux City. The prop for the Sioux Coupe is 85 inches long. Mine is to big to fit that model. Any thought as to why my prop has the decal with Fahlin in the middle and KK prop co sc iowa around the bottom. From my research it seems KK only made one aircraft and this prop is to big. What do you think. Thanks, Bob

Default kari keen

If you can, I would like to see where it says "kari keen" on the prop hub if possible via a photograph. Now that its known that the measurment is different, this has really peaked my curiosity as to what the prop fits. I went back to look at the decal photo where it says " kari keen propeller company " its a bit hard to make it out, but its there.

I thought for a moment that " kari keen " had made a small trimotor that used three leblond engines or 3 kinner engines, but upon looking in the reference books, it was a " kreutzer " air coach that used the 3 kinner engines, see enclosed photo. On the " Kreutzer " you could have easily had props that were 95 inches because there was plenty of ground clearance, but as you can see, those appear to be sensenich props.

This particular aircraft was at Oshkosh a few years back and it was really a beautiful flying jewel.

It will be interesting to see how this all pans out as to the model of aircraft this prop you have, fits on.
