The twin-engine F5L was one of the Felixstowe F series of flying boats developed at the Seaplane Experimental Station, Felixstowe, England during World War 1 from an original design by the American designer Glenn Curtiss. The U.S. Naval Aircraft Factory further redesigned the F5L for American production with numerous modifications made, including fitting 400 hp Liberty 12A engines. The American-built version was also known as the Curtiss F5L. At the end of World War1 the Aeromarine Plane and Motor Company began converting wartime Curtiss F5L flying boats into airliners. Renamed the Aeromarine Model 75, these flying boats were relatively comfortable aircraft that could accommodate ten passengers. Aeromarine Airways began service on the Great Lakes with a ninety-minute Cleveland to Detroit scheduled run. This service was very successful and led to expansion of the Aeromarine Airways route system operating from terminals in New York City, Atlantic City, Miami, Key West, Havana. I depicted the Buckeye flying over Lake Michigan. The Buckeye was a regular on the Detroit to Cleveland route. It also saw service in Florida during the winter months.
