What a great pair of planes! Our pair is a ‘46 BC12D and a ‘55 PA22/20. Son Ryan flew in the Taylorcraft at 20 days old, now all four grandkids fly regularly in both planes.

My first ride at five was in a tri-pacer with my dad, you never forget those things❤️

The “Flying Brightwells”! Congratulations David and Steven! Two great planes! I seem to remember your grandfather Bill taking me for a ride in the T’craft. I used to love Bill’s stories of instructing in the Bamboo Bomber during WWII.

Congratulations David Brightwell!

Love them

My first ride was in a Piper J4 Cub. I was 12.

Beautiful airplanes!
