"Wrongway Feldman's" Krieder Reisner KR21 on Gilligan's Island

Wrongway Feldman's KR-21 on gilligan's Island (SitcomsOnline image) - Airplanes and RocketsThe other night Melanie and I were watching an episode of the old Gilligan's Island television show titled "Wrongway Feldman," which was about a long-forgotten, famous aviator who took a wrong turn during a race and ended up being stranded on the same island as seven famous castaways. The "Spirit of the Bronx" airplane featured in the show was referred to by Wrongway as a Krieder Reisner KR21. It is a right nice looking biplane. I immediately hit the pause button and looked it up on Google. The KR-21, according to the EAA AirVenture Museum's website, was manufactured in the 1929-1930 timespan, had a 22'-7" wingspan, and a 125 hp Kinner B5 (R-440), 372 cubic inch, 5-cylinder radial engine. Not very many were made, so it is remarkable that this one turned up in the show.
