Keep the Skinny Birds Flying Safely

While looking through some old paperwork, I found this postcard. On the back of the card it states "Porterfield Turner Advanced Trainer". Additionally there was another photo showing the detail of the landing gear drag strut I believe.

Thank you, Bill, this is very interesting!  It looks like ol' Ed didn't quite have biplanes out of his system from his American Eagle days.  That "thread through the needle" main gear suspension is quite elegant. 

I wonder what ever became of this old girl.  Unfortunately, I can't make out the registration number on the tail to look it up.
