Ken Schmitt's maiden flight in his beautiful Stearman. After lots of years of hard work, it all paid off. Bill Robinet is going along in the front seat until Ken's ready to solo.
Joe Watson's "new" Aircoupe made a great centerpiece on the front lawn at the May 5, breakfast at Creswell.
Bill and Willie Robinet flying over the May 5th breakfast at 3000 ft. taken with a telephoto lens. The clouds make a beautiful background for this wonderful N3N. Bill is the author of "By the Skin of My Teeth". A very exciting account of Bill's days as a Crop Duster.
Here is a great view of the many airplanes that showed up for the May 5th breakfast. There were collector cars too. Maybe next year there will be as many cars as airplanes. They were certainly a compliment to each other.
Talk about a very special event. This beautiful DC-3 was at Creswell for over a week.
Jim and Nancy Davis showed up in this beauty instead of their plane. Vivian Oswald seems to enjoy riding in the Model A as much as she enjoys flying in the Yak, (background)
Just a few of the planes that came from Cottage Grove, Eugene and Creswell. It was a fun time.
