When Howard Hughes finally decided he'd raised enough caine and it was okay to die, his Sikorsky S-43 was one of many airplanes that surfaced in out of the way places. Flight Journal ran a story on the airplane and some time in the next several months, we'll have it posted in the Articles section of Airbum.
Spartan Executives. We'll be adding a bunch of Spartan
shots in future issues of AirBum.com.
Tiger Moths at Old Rhinebeck
Jim Younkin is something of a national treasure because
of all the craftsmanship and artistry he has brought to restoring
and recreating antique airplanes. Here's his Travel Air Mystery
Ship replica and a pirep on his Mullicoupe and Mr. Mulligan can
be found in the pilot report section.
Bill Nutting of Prescott, Arizona owns and flies one
of the three WACO SRE''s still flying. It's a beautiful, high
speed (190 mph) old gal that are seen entirely too seldom.
Not truly an antique, this replica of the first land
based airplane to break 300 mph (304mph in 1933), the Modell 44
Wedell-Williams was built by Jim Clevenger, Marion, NC and engineered
and designed by your's truly. No speed demons, it took us 15 years
to finish the airplane. Cool, huh!?
