Oshkosh 2014 Highlights - Spartan Executive

After many years of communicating via email and telephone it was nice to shake Jim Savage's hand and talk Spartan Executives face to face.  Jim is the very enthusiastic owner of Executive serial number 17. He invited me to look through the restoration photos and sit in the pilot's seat of his imaculate Executive. It was one of the top highlights from my trip. Hats off to Jim for saving and restoring this ship!

Oshkosh 2014 Highlights - Travel Air Sky Siren

Another highlight from Oshkosh this past summer was this custom Travel Air named Sky Siren.  I had watched the web site for the shop (Aerocraftsman) that restored it and was a fan of what I saw coming together.  Walking around it in person at Oshkosh had me captivated! Check out the cool art deco paint scheme on this 1929 Travel Air D4D!

Oshkosh 2014 Highlights - Monocoupe

One of the many highlights of Oshkosh... this Monocoupe is a stand out!  A 90A with a 145hp Warner.  I walked around it a couple of times admiring it and noticing the fine restoration. Just awesome...
