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.

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
Stories, Museum reviews, and

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

As an experiment I've added
Google ads to the homepage and a

clicks this site will generate.
