    Gee Bee planes history:

    This famous race plane company started as Granville Brothers Aircraft Repair in 1927 and changed to the Granville Bros. in 1929 to develop their Model A. After the success of their Model Z, the company changed again as the Granville Aircraft Corp (1932) building their most famous aircraft, the Super Sportster R which captured the world land plane record of 296.3 mph on September 3, 1932.The company went bankrupt in 1934.The five Granville brothers were Edward, Mark, Robert, Thomas and Zantford. The Granville Brothers built only 24 aircrafts. Only two originals are known to exist.

    In 1970 Ken Flager began building a reproduction of the Florence Klingensmith Model Y. Completed in 1984, the reproduction is powered by a 300 HP Lycoming R-680. Jack Venaleck now owns this aircraft. An exact replica Gee Bee Z has been completed by Jim Kimball Enterprises and is on display at Kermit Week Fantasy of Flight, Polk City Florida.

    The most famous flying reproduction of any of the Super Sportsters was the Gee Bee R2 example built by Delmar Benjamin and Steve Wolf, which was test flown December 23, 1991. After being flown for many years, the plane was retired to Kermit Weeks' Fantasy of Flight, Polk City, Florida alongside the Model Z reproduction.
