Keep the Skinny Birds Flying Safely
ATC 720 was issued in 1940. Would any of us with flyable 65 hp Collegiates want to get together for a mass flyin to the EAA convention in Oshkosh this year? If there’s enough genuine interest, I’ll contact the Red Barn folks at EAA about getting a special parking spot in the Vintage area, but I’ll need a tail wheel count. I don’t think we’ll have 80 Collegiates for the 80 year anniversary, but 18 would be nice...
My LP-65 turns 80 this year as well, in August. It truly would be awesome to have a group show up for Airventure to celebrate. I live and am based in Mexico, 50 miles south of Guadalajara. I've laid out the route to KOSH and expect it would take 5 to 6 days to fly one way barring weather or mechanical issues. It would be the flying adventure of a life time for sure.
XB-KXV was registered in the U.S. as NC27250. For more see Sport Aviation May 2013 "HANDS ON" lead article.

Sounds like a plan. Can you coordinate? Joe
Sure, I can coordinate...provided that EAA doesn’t cancel the convention.
I used to fly into Palmyra, back in the late 70’s/early 80’s. There was an older IA on the field I visited, can’t recall his name though. I flew out of Burlington and later Playboy.
