A Cessna 150, Revived

Scott Urban, a Red Canoe customer from Pasco, WA, recently sent us some photos. “The photos are of my 1967 Cessna 150G and my 1943 Boeing Stearman PT-17,” he told us. “I bought the Cessna 150 in a pile of parts about 10 years ago and restored it; it hadn’t flown since 1977. I bought the Stearman in spring of 2010, and in May, I flew it from Wisconsin to Washington State – about 1500 miles. This Stearman started its life as a Navy N2S-5 version, training pilots during WWII. It was later sold as surplus to a crop-duster in Texas, and then restored to its current configuration as Army Air Corps PT-17. Both aircraft are an absolute pleasure to fly.”

To thank Mr. Urban for his letter, we’ve sent him a Boeing Experimental Flight Test cap.

Please, tell us your story, and send us pictures, too. If we post it on the blog, we’ll send you a piece of Red Canoe swag to say thanks. Email us here, or mail your pics to this address.
