Developed from the earlier K-2 and K-3 the K-5 first flew in 1929 as a two crew four passenger aircraft, some 15 in total being built. I would suggest that the power plant listed is in fact for the K-2 which used 1 x 90 h.p. and 2 x 60 h.p. Le Blond engines. The K-5 on the other hand used 3 x 100 h.p. 5 cylinder Kinner K-5 engines.

The Curtiss Kingbird looked like a 2 engine version of the
Kreutzer. Eastern operated a few in the 1930s.

Was there a version of this aircraft that had only two engines (no nose) and possibly twin tail setup? I have a picture that is very similar (about 1934-35) that looks very much like this airplane with more modern looking engines. Amelia Earhart was flying it. I am trying to identify the aircraft. Supposingly she flew this airplance from NY to Panama and then to San Francisco.
