Hi, I am new to this forum, from Switzerland and am researching the Inland Sport parasol design. I am in search for the particular photos (high resolution from glass negatives) or negatives of which I included poor quality pictures. Can anybody help?

Regards
Hans

Help: Can anybody tell me how to upload the pictures?[/list]

Uploading pictures is fairly easy, as long as you have them posted on a site somewhere (sites like Pikasa, or Flickr do very well).

First, go to the site where your picture is and bring it on the screen. Then, copy the full address of the picture.

After this, you come back here, write whatever description you fell like, then click on the next to last button just above this window (shown only when you post a new message) identified "Img". This will add a short code in your text. Immediately after, paste the address of the picture, then click on the same button again.

Do the same thing for each pictures you want to post and then submit !

Hope that helps... :wink:

I did a test flight on the only one that (I think) is currently flying in 2004. I am not sure that it has flown since. The airplane is NC8088, and is based in New Garden, PA. Let me know if I can answer any questions that you have.

Chuck Hall has a pretty yellow/black one in Manhatten, KS but I don't think it has flown in years. There is also a blue one in the Mid-west as well.

HANS.....Nice work on the Hatz. Looks really good. Too late now but an outrigger-type gear would have made it even closer to a Waco unless you were trying to duplicate more of an F-2 look. What size wheels are those and are they motorcycle?

Hi Andy,

Thank you very much for the picture and the nice comments on our Hatz!
You are right on the landing gear, but our Hatz will not be a reduced size Waco replica, but will include the best design features of the ASO/ATO and QCF. We like the QCF gear and wing design and the tail design of the ASO most.
I already have some pictures of almost all Inland Sports surving inluding the light blue one and the two in Kansas. I hope to find those nice photos of NC9416 as I posted. If I find out how to put a photo on the forum the way that it automatically shows on the screen, if will put mine as well on the forum.
Best regards Hans

Hi Eric,

Do you recall that we spoke the first time at Oshkosh 08, when I bought a copy of you beautiful book "Vintage Flyers II". Congratulations for your beautiful work! On page 72 you depicted the red and white Inland Sport you have also flown. Would it be possible that I could obtain somehow a high resolution file of that particular photo? I would very much enjoy!
Have a Merry X-Mas and a Happy New Year!
Kind regards
Hans, Switzerland

It seems y'all know your stuff. Fill me in a bit on the general history of the Inland Sportster.

Andy you really need a secretary!

You midwesterners stay warm.

blue skies and best wishes,
Doug
