Alexander Eaglerock Photo Gallery
    Designed by Daniel Noonan in the 1920s, the Alexander Eaglerock was manufactured in Colorado for the purpose of promoting the Alexander Film Company. Unable to convince current manufactures to build a needed fleet of 40 to 50 aircraft, the Alexander Brothers founded their own aircraft company. One employee who worked for Alexander was Al Mooney who later founded the Mooney Aircraft Company. Charles Lindbergh was interested in the Eaglerock as well as the Bellanca WB-2 aircraft, but Alexander being swamped with orders, led Lindbergh to choose the Ryan Airline Company. The Eaglerock was originally powered with either a 150 hp Hispano-Suiza "A" or a Wright J-5 Whirlwind engine. The Eaglerock was also available fitted with a variety of other engines. Over 900 aircraft of six variants were built. It is estimated there are currently 24 Alexander aircraft still in airworthy condition.
