Identify this airplane, please by [email protected]
I have a friend who bought an airplane in 1962, and he cannot remember the make. It was a white or cream taildragger with tandem seating and a control stick rather than a yoke. It was a high-wing airplane, and it was easy to fly. He bought it when he was 15, for $600, and his only training was...

Schweiss bi-fold hangar door seal design by [email protected]

That's the fancy bent over tip that gets all the jokes about the FAA Inspector who grounded a Cheyenne when the propellor first came out. (Looks like the prop...
