Antique Airplanes...

Lots of Good photos of old antique airplanes... These photos are for reference only. I did not take these photos but thought someone on here would like them, as I get the time I will load more photos and start identifying them. All of these photos are from the Antique Airplane Digest, Air Power Museum, Rearwin Register magazines dated from the late 1950's to the mid 1980's from Ottumwa Iowa. Mudman1959

Nice! I have decided ever since I have flown in my dads friends 1940's Stinson 108 I really like the antique/classic/golden age airplanes. They are just so elegant and have good lines. My favorite pics are these:

The one with the 3 (Fleet?) biplanes, the air racer on the bottom right, and the lustcombe(?) 4th from the bottom on the right.

I will have to find the magazine it was in... I am going to try and put the information available in the magazines with the photos, so it may take a little bit. I'll try to find it for you... Mudman1959
