AV8R, from your avatar I thought you might like this:

Me and my dad's ole 1928 WACO. Eufaula, Al -1984 I was in the 12th grade! I never soloed the Waco but I did taxi around the airport by myself! I still have the WWII AN6530 goggles (as in your avatar)!!

Convert that pic to B&W or sepia and it's an instant classic! Nice airplane to be in, even if you only got to first base in her. :righton:

Why? Did the Red Baron finally shoot down your doghouse??

I thought he had retired years ago and went into the pizza business

I was building this airplane up till two years ago. Too expensive so I sold what I had and purchased a 1984 CJ-7 with a chevy 350.

82% Scale 1933 Curtiss P-6E "Hawk" bi-plane fighter powered by a Chevy 383 Stroker.


The Real Deal (Snow Owl Insignia)


Sold it and got my Jeep


I know, bad deal but I had to!!

True, but at least the Jeep is mobile unlike the aircraft. :righton:

That's funny as I was kicking around selling some jeep projects and parts to start an airplane fund!
