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.
Mr. Urban stands proud, wearing our USAAC roundel cap.
