I used to own and fly a Starduster Too.

Along the way I subscribed to the Starduster Magazine.

I am now cleaning up an old storage area and have come across the paper copies of the Starduster magazines I received over the years.

(1) I see there are .PDF versions here on the Aircraft Spruce site. I have some that are not available here. So I was wondering if the person that placed these on the site would like to get copies of the ones I have to add to the collection?

(2) I don't think the magazines are worth much, but I hate to throw them away. If someone would pay for the packaging and shipping of the magazine, I can make arrangements to have them shipped to them. I now live in NW Louisiana.

I am the guy that scanned all of those magazines about ten years ago. I had to borrow magazines from the collections of other folks in order to get a complete set.

I don't remember now, but it does seem as if there were a few magazines that I never had. I would be glad to 'finish the job' if you would be so kind as to forward these to me.

Thanks & Blue Skies

Dave,

We is still alive. We moved back to my home in Louisiana in January of 1999. I had tried for years before that to get a hanger at our local airport with no luck. I had to sell my Starduster Too. I sold it to some folks from California that were working on a bi-plane of their own (I believe an a Christian Eagle II). They told me they were not going to take the engine and prop from my Starduster Too for their plane, but I suspect they did. They would have gotten a $12,000 constant speed prop and a 200 HP IO-360 engine with 500 hours on it easily. My Starduster Too shows to be de-commissioned, but I can find no accident report.

We each ended up getting jobs that paid about half what we were making in Phoenix, so it might have been best anyway. But, I sure miss flying.

In my time here I have built a 45' geodesic dome house and a 35' geodesic dome garage, completed a masters degree, and worked my tail off testing hardware and software changes to the B-52 bomber simulators on Barksdale AFB. I have over 3000 hours in the B-52 simulators and zero hours flying the real aircraft.

How about you?

Titus

Charles,

Great to hear from you about the magazines. I appreciate your efforts to make them available to people.

I am busy cleaning out an old house on my property that I used for a construction office and storage for years. I am a bit under the gun to get everything out soon as it will be torn down in a few weeks.

I know I had gotten back issues from perhaps issue one and saw some dated in 1997 and 1998. I could be missing some. Just not sure and have limited time right now.

I would sure like to see them preserved. I got a lot out of reading them.

Maybe we can work something out.

Titus
