We attended EAA Chapter 1246's monthly get together where they were having a Pancake and Sausage fly-in. There we saw Jimmy Doolittle's totally restored 1938 Stinson Reliant aircraft. The owner was gracious enough to tell us about the history of this glorious aircraft.
We attended the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) World War II Air Expo - Dallas Executive Airport, Dallas, Texas this past Saturday and had a great time! What a wide array of Fighters, Bombers and Military vehicles on display! AND the CAF will soon be headquartered at Dallas Executive Airport, Dallas, Texas. Only display - B-29, B-17, B-24, B-25, P-51, HellDiver and many more!
In this episode, Gary has removed the engine to fix a small oil leak, and discovers broken engine mounts on the Stinson SR-7 Project. He also shows us his other Stinson SR-7B project, which will be a full restoration.
Our good friend, Bob Rogers, has the best of both worlds, an Experimental Aircraft for pure fun and a General Aviation Aircraft for long trips and comfort. See his Mustang II and his 1966 V-35 Beechcraft Bonanza.
