The Laird LC-DW500 Super Solution was a racing biplane built in the early 1930s by the famous Emil Matthew "Matty" Laird for the Cleveland Speed Foundation. Laird was already famous in the air racing circuit and remain the nation's foremost builder of custom airplanes from 1920 to 1930.
It had a large radial engine and an extremely faired windshield. Other than being a biplane, it was similar in appearance to the great Gee Bee. It was an advanced design for the time because of the its very clean aerodynamic construction and tight engine cowling.
The Super Solution was the first winner of the Bendix Trophy race from Burbank to Cleveland in less than a crazy 12h ride throw the USA where it was flown by the already legend Maj. James H. Doolittle.
