Our Vintage Airplane Ad of the Week comes to us from the November 1961 issue of Flying magazine and highlights the exciting new 1962 Comanche 250!

Comment on Facebook

I had the pleasure to log 30 plus hours in the 180 model... Always wished for more hp under the hood...

Comanche 250 could move!

I like how they took out the right front seat for the photo with the door open.

Remember going to a fatal crash site with one of these. Danbury Airport, lousy visibility, no tower or ILS. Piled it into Pine Mountain. All three on board perished in the resulting fire.

Congratulations to Thomas and Dorinda Morpeth, owners of our Plane of the Week, submitted to us by Gary Brossett!

Gary tells us, "A wonderful 1952 Cessna C-170B, owned by Thomas (EAA 637599) and Dorinda (EAA 637600) Morpeth of the Chattahoochee Valley EAA Chapter 677 in Columbus GA. Thomas tells me "we bought her in January of 2015 from a gentleman in York Pennsylvania who had her for 29 years," "she started life in the Forestry Department as a photo plane." The previous owner had the engine rebuilt, freshened up the interior and painted the exterior. The Morpeths entered her in a competition at the 2015 SERFI Fly-in...she tool best Classic aircraft honors

Dorinda flew her 300th Young Eagle mission in 2019 in the aircraft, Tom and Dorinda take turns at our rallies and the aircraft has flown more than 250 YE missions."

Our Plane of the Week belongs to Karsten Wallis, who tells us, "my 1943 E-75 Stearman is marked almost exactly as it was in WW2 and is powered by a 300hp Lycoming r-680-13 engine . I purchased it in June of 2020 and flew it home solo from Oklahoma to Pennsylvania. It has been an absolute joy to own and fly."

Congratulations!

The accident pictures were taken by me shortly after I had an engine failure back in September. I’d like to take this opportunity with a little spotlight here to preach about the importance of shoulder harnesses. Lots of vintage airplanes only have lap belts. The only reason I am still alive and well is because I had an excellent set of 4 point harnesses in that stearman. Something to REALLY consider adding to your airplane no matter what the cost is.

Beautiful!

Yay Karsten Wallis

Congratulations!

Wow! What a beauty!!
