We apologize for the small number of classic shots presented here, but that'll change over the next few months. As the owners of a Cessna 140A, we're partial to the breed, but we were late getting the slides sorted out and scanned. Getting slides scanned and prepped for the site turned out to be an enormous task (over 300 are on the site right now), but we're getting better at it, so hang in there with us and keep coming back to see what we've added.
The unknown Ercoupe Pilot. Look closely at the pilot in the right seat who is doing the formation flying. Carl Pascarell lost the flip when deciding who was going to fly a 195 Cessna or the Ercoupe in a two-ship shot. He formed up under the camera ship and when I called him into formation, I fired off a dozen shots before I realized he'd carried his desire not to be seen flying an Ercoupe to new hieghts.
85 hp Swifts are super rare as most of them have been modified to larger engines. Mark Holiday flew this one and used to do a terrific airshow in it.
