Enough tigger, here's a couple of shots from a just-for-fun photo shoot we did yesterday, three Kinner engines and one Kinner airplane. Airplanes are a 1931 Fleet 7, 1930 Bird BK, and 1934 Kinner Sportster.

Baldeagle;
Thank you so much for those exceptionally beautiful photos of rare Golden Age planes. (in FLIGHT, no less!) Many thanks to the obviously talented Tim Loehrke, who took the photos. That Sportster B, in those colors, is a feast for the eyes. Will that first photo be appearing on any periodical covers , or in articles, to come? Any history of the plane and the restoration?

If there are any more photos fom these sessions, i am certain I am not alone in hope of seeing more!

Camera ship was a good old Piper Cub, with 85 hp engine.

Today the Sportster got delivered to its new home at the Eagles Mere Air Museum in Eagles Mere, PA, http://www.eaglesmereairmuseum.org/ (also on Facebook) , we got there just before it started snowing (!!).

Along the way we stopped at the Golden Age Air Museum in Bethel, PA (http://www.goldenageair.org/, also on Facebook), to show off the 'plane, and because I knew they might have a suitable spot for a little re-creation:


1934, Yakima, Washington

2014, Bethel, Pennsylvania

Wow
Comparing those two pics , they almost have the same skyline
Could have been the same place if you did not know Better

Speaking of Kinners , I am on the search for Kinner B5 exhaust parts as used on the Fleet 16b
if anyone has anything

That blue one looks like the one Morgan Kaolian used to give rides in at the airport in Stratford.
