When I started in aviation, I was a mechanic for the original Piedmont Airlines in Winston-Salem NC. The founder of that airline was Tom Davis. He learned how to fly in a E2 Taylorcraft. I remember that airplane well, it was kept in the hangar behind the FBO and flown by Toms grandson. The airspeed indicator was simply a scale mounted on the lift strut and the wind pushed a needle back.

It now lives at the Sun-nFun Museum.

Here are some pictures I found on the web of the E2 that He owned.
