Where it all started.
This is a photo of my first two planes
(Albia, Iowa circa summer of 1979). I got my
PPL summer of 1976 while in the Air Force in Plattsburgh, NY. I
bought the Champ in 1978 A couple of
months after leaving the Air Force. The biplane is a Parks P-3,
was, in reality, a modified Starduster 1
with a Muskateer nose bowl built with the idea of looking like a Boeing
The builder, Bob Parks
of Greenville, SC was a WWII P-47 and P-51 pilot that loved the old
Boeing P-12. The plane was featured
in the Dec
1968 copy of Sport Aviation. The plane had extra flying and
landing wires for strength and used a
single rib plan form rather than the
eliptical wing plan form of the Starduster. At 740# empty weight
it was quite
a performer with an O-290 powerplant and a 40
mph stall. What later turned out to be my third plane is barely
visible through the windows of the Champ.
It's a red and white Stinson 108-1. I was also flying the
in the background. I parted ways with the
Champ during the fall of 1980 and sold the Biplane in the summer of
1985. I sold the Stinson spring of 1986 when it was time to
buy a house for a growing family leaving me grounded
for a couple of years until a J-4 Cub partnership piqued my interest.
My "other" plane, the
Tomahawk was sold November 2009. Wish I could have kept it.
The Tomahawks got lots of bad press and I got a lot of negative
comments from pilots that learned to fly in a Tomahawk.
However, I really enjoyed the plane. Cheap to own and maintain.
Inexpensive to feed. Hauls a load. And fast enough
for reasonable cross country. Yes, you do have to fly the plane,
but isn't that why you buy them?

NM area in my Tomahawk.
