|Yellow Air Cab Company
a Wichita, Kansas-based company that wanted to build aircraft for an air taxi service and franchise
The Yellow Air Cab Company was chartered on May 27, 1929. It was based in a hangar previously occupied by the Knoll Aircraft Company, at Kellogg and Webb Road, in Wichita, Kansas. In October 1929 the company entered into an agreement to purchase 200 all-metal Buckley LC-4's, and in January 1930 it purchased the manufacturing rights to the Hilton "Super Mid-Wing."
This Hilton "Super Mid-Wing" prototype,
along with the manufacturing rights, was purchased by the
Yellow Air Cab Company in January 1930. The plane crashed
in February, killing its pilot, and no additional Super
Mid-Wings were ever built.
