Past Plane and Simple

Dad’s Taylorcraft on Nebraska farm field, late 1940’s, with Grandma and my two oldest siblings.

Thanksgiving reminiscing always includes memories of airplanes, starting with this 1941 Taylorcraft, NC33932. The first airplane ride that can I remember was in this aircraft, and I thoroughly did not like it! Later, however, I came to love the airplane and looked forward to each chance to go for another ride. Both my brothers flew this airplane, but it had been sold by the time I was old enough to learn to fly. It was restored by subsequent owners and in 2011 it was exported to Australia where I hope that to this day it still flies over the land down under.

For my account of my first airplane ride see:
