The Williams Vintage Aircraft Collection

My collection of flying and semi-derelict airplanes (aka projects), including a Ryan Sport Coupe, a Bellanca, a pre-WWII Cessna Airmaster, a Rearwin Sportster, a Fairchild 22, a St. Louis Cardinal, a Kinner Sportster, a Harlow PJC-2, and a Waco cabin biplane.

November 2005:  I've sold my old Stinson V-77, which is the first airplane I've sold, and acquired a St. Louis Cardinal, which is now the oldest plane in the collection.

September 2005:  The Harlow project is now in Seattle, and the Rearwin road moved to Auburn.

June 2005:  Check out the final Ryan new cowling pictures.

The Logbook

Stories, Museum reviews, and Ramblings.

January 2006:  Great trip reports from Martin Robinson of flying to and across France in a Yak 18.


A collection of scanned and retyped manuals for antique engines and aircraft.  Also includes real-world operational tips where available.


Here's a calendar for 2006 fly-ins, and some tips.

As an experiment I've added Google ads to the homepage and a few other selected pages.  I'm playing with Google AdWords for my work at Jobster.com, and I am interested in seeing how many impressions and clicks this site will generate.  More details.
