The Alexander Eaglerock was one of a number of airplanes built for civilian use to replace the dwindling supplies of World War I surplus craft. Winging away from the Denver-based Alexander Aircraft Corporation at "mile-high" altitudes, equipped with a Curtiss OX-5, 90 horsepower engine, the Eaglerock cruised at heights and speeds that many old and weary warplanes couldn't reach anymore. In 1925, the first Eaglerock bristled with new innovations such as a tail wheel and wings that folded back for storage

The Alexander Eaglerock airplane is nearly unknown today, even to many aviation buffs, but in the late '20s Alexander was producing ten times as many airplanes per year as Lockheed, Boeing, or Douglas. Designed from scratch by Al Mooney, just out of high school and entirely self-taught as an aviation engineer, it sold well, and after some teething issues proved to be a good, honest airplane that even made history in the Alaskan bush. Sadly, the onset of the Depression, together with some bungling on the part of the nascent CAA caused the Alexander brothers to close up shop, and focus on their advertising business. (You've seen their TV commercials, if you're over fifty!) But that's not the end of the story. The tenacity of a few ex-employees kept the inventory together, and they eventually built a successful business under another name, building airliner components.
