One Piece at a Time
Jim and Ken Kreutzfeld, EAA 797045 and 76669, painstakingly restored this 1943 Howard DGA-15P, the winner of the Antique Grand Champion Gold Lindy award at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019. See the May 2020 issue of EAA Sport Aviation magazine for more.
Captain Eddie’s Fairey Firefly
Eddie Kurdziel, EAA 431776, brought his rare Fairey Firefly AS6 to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, and won Reserve Grand Champion: Post World War II.
Ron Price bought his rare 1938 Luscombe Model 4 in 1977 when it was on display in a museum, but the restoration didn't begin in earnest until nearly 30 years later.
Ike’s Bird - A little-known presidential transport has a new mission
When we think of presidential aircraft, we imagine jumbo jets, like the Boeing VC-25 (the military version of the 747) tagged with the call sign “Air Force One.” Here’s a look at a smaller transport, a 1955 Aero Commander L-26B known as Ike's Bird.
The Family Skywagon
Carl Geisert, EAA Lifetime 852448, was the driving force behind the gathering of Cessna 180/185s at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019. His airplane, N1546C, is a 1953 180 that has been in his family for more than 50 years.
The Second Westfall Special
When Jeff Paulson, EAA 263515, brought this striking little biplane to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, he found that almost nobody knew what it was. That’s not surprising, as it’s a one-off replica of a one-off design called the Westfall Special.
