In 1924, after an initial partnership forming an automobile company, Russell (Penny) Nicholas and Howard Beazley formed the Nicholas-Beazley Airplane Co., in Nicholas' hometown of Marshall. Within a few years, the company was the largest distributor of airplane parts in the country, and its flying school was the world's largest for civilians. While the company focused on selling airplane parts to airplane manufacturers early on, in 1928, the initial Barling monoplane was hand built at the facility. A year later, the plane, which would be known as the NB-3, was successfully piloted for the first time.
