Steve,
Sorry to say, I did not see a Starduster at Air Venture this year.

I doubt the wash off the top wing is the issue with rear cockpit turbulence. Ron Caraway, who gave me my transition training into my Starduster was very experienced in sport planes/antiques and he sai ...

Thanks for posting!

What another great looking plane from Baxter Aircraft. I have to say the unpainted, natural aluminum panels look fabulous to me. I fell in love with the look the first time ...

Tim,
Give me a few days and let me see if I can recall how to resize and post images to this site.

Dave,
Well, I can't say that I'm building a Starduster, but I'm still working on one.

Most of my "work" lately is simply flying the airplane, but the condition inspection and occasional upgrades ...

Good job!

I displayed at the same show about 6 years ago. It was a great experience, but I did not request snow fencing around my plane and it was mobbed by the legions of the unwashed.

It should be easy enough to meet at Columbia, CA during their Father's Day Fly-In, June 17-18, 2017.

Upside:

It is an existing event with pancake breakfasts, flour bombing, spot landing and oth ...

Bill,
Your plane is as good looking as always.

Our Fallbrook group is planning to fly-in to Agua Caliente this coming Saturday (21st) if the weather holds. Will bring a barbeque and some viddles. ...

Cliff,
Great to hear from you and thanks for checking in.

Are you still flying your plane or have you moved on? Obviously I've lost track...

You are correct, there is not a lot going on this ...

Well, if it always went according to plan there would be no mystery to it!

Steve,
Thanks for the report. Of course this was the first Air Venture I couldn't attend in the last coupe of years--and there were more biplanes there.

Know what you mean about all that walking.. ...

Steve,
Okay, I have no clue as to what the minimum paint weight would be on your SA100. But I just have to say I'm astounded at a 160 lb Jenny Craig diet!

Man, that's cutting the fat.

I agree ...

Dennis,
Welcome! It's always great to have a new Starduster fan on board.

Sounds like you have some airplane building in front of you.

As for other 'dusters in the upper midwest, I'm sure the ...

Bob,
Thanks so much for the numbers on your Too--they make sense to me.

My Too is also 540 powered, but with 10:1 Ly-Con pistons and a CS Hartzell, so the speeds and fuel burn are a little differ ...
