We want to know: what is the oldest aircraft you have flown?
I guess the oldest plane I have flown would be a T-50 Cessna "Bamboo Bomber".
I also have over 5,000 hours flying in Stearmans.
I used to own a 1962 Cherokee 160, which was the first year they built Cherokees. (I owned it in the 1990s!) It was laid out more like a TriPacer than what most Cherokee pilots would expect. I loved that plane and regretted selling it. I do have some stick time in a Great Lakes Bi-plane, but I don't actually know when it was built. (It had a Lycoming engine, so it was probably newer than the Cherokee.) I also had a few fun moments in a Cessna Bird Dog, which would have been built sometime in the 1950s.
1938 Luscumbe and was the most enjoyable and fun airplane I ever flew. Very responsive and could spin and recover easily. True stick that fit right in your lap. It had no electric power, hand propped, and small squeeze pucks for brakes. The brakes were similar to bicycle brakes with simple wire on pulley's, and little pedals you pushed with your heels. Great little fun plane.........
The oldest aircraft that I had the opportunity to fly was a 1929 Bird with a Continental 220 hp engine
