As an aside, Jim's Dad was quite an impressive man. His Mom, too.

Soloed J-3C N92100 in April 1965. My dad was in N315N at the same time. Our instructor didn't want one of us to hold over the other that "I was first" Lots of fun hours in the backseat of one or the other of them.

Worked for Lefty Gardner at BWD when I was a college student at Howard Payne. Got some time in the Stearmans (Stearmen?) we used for spraying mesquite. He was a class act.

Now in CLL. May have to make a run down to Halletsville to get some more stick time in a J-3.

Here's a shot of me with the 1/4 scale model of the J-3 that has most of the hours in my logbook.

Lefty was a class act... That model is wonderful! I dont have the coordination to fly those things, I always get discombobulated when its coming at me.
Come on down and fly the cub.
