Harry Ashe landed at Santa Monica five times. His first landing was on Thursday, January 2, 1930 at 5:30PM. For a number of years, Ashe was personal pilot for William Gibbs McAdoo, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and senator [D] from California (1933-1938). The airplane Ashe flew to Santa Monica that evening belonged to McAdoo and was identified as the Lockheed Vega NC309H. He carried two unidentified passengers. Based at San Francisco, CA, they were on their way to Culver City, CA.

His next three landings were also made in NC309H. Each time he carried multiple passengers and arrived from and departed to various west coast destinations.

His final visit to Santa Monica was on Friday, August 16, 1935 at 11:30AM. This time he was flying the Lockheed Electra NC14945 on a round-robin flight from Glendale, CA with a copilot and one unidentified passenger.

The Electra belonged to Max Fleischmann. and Fleischmann, the Electra and Ashe have cryptic connections with another Clover Register pilot, Elmer McLeod. Please direct your browser to the link to investigate those connections.
