Thank you, Bill!  I especially enjoyed hearing your Dad talk about how production ended up going to Minnesota, and also about the AD requiring the aileron counterweights being issued solely for public relations.  I wish your parents had been sat in a "restored to original condition" Collegiate, though...

To all:

I have uploaded the 50th Year Anniversary video of Porterfield that was made in 1990. The video is about 19 minutes long and features several Porterfield aircraft. The video also features a short interview with Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Skinner (Bill and Lucille), my parents.

The video is very special to me and historically significant for the Porterfield aircraft. I wanted to share this with everyone. It is one of the very few videos I have with my father and mother shown in it. The Porterfield aircraft was very special to my father, so "Keep the Skinny Birds Flying"
