My father had his private pilot's license and we flew alot when i was growing up. He was big into the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and he built his own KR2 plane (took 14 years in the various garages and basements over time).
--just a stock internet photo, don't have any of his old photos scanned---http://www.fly-kr.com/http://krbuilder.org/
I remember going to Wisconsin for the big annual EAA show.
Yes i've seen and remember those Harvards.
We flew down in the family Piper Cherokee (stock photo).
But over the years he had many friends in Ontario that belonged to EAA and had their own planes.
One fellow owned an aerobatic Pitts Special. Now that was a fun ride!!
