Dear AOO,

The oldest airplane I have flown is a 1964 Cessna 185C N5813T that I have been restoring since 1988.

B-25J built early in 1944. I flew it to airshows in 1992 and 93. Not a difficult aircraft to fly; but to taxi was challenge because no steerable nose wheel, differential braking & differential power on the engines. After a few hours the taxing was not bad.

The oldest was a Lockheed 10, owned by a gentleman from Ohio. I can't remember his name, except it was German, and I'm not sure of the town. This was when I operated an FBO at Boca Raton in late 60s, early 70s. If some of you don't know the 10, think Amelia!! But I call hers an 11, because it was a 10 airframe on which they hung a pair of Model 12 engines and props. They added extra tankage for her, and some other mods that I know nothing about. Someone out there might remember more about her mods. It was a surprisingly easy plane to fly, more like a stodgy Twin Beech! Lee Robinson West Palm Beach

I've had the good fortune to own and fly two aircraft from 1928- a Heath Parasol rebuilt by my father and his friends in the 1990's, and a 1928 Travel Air 4000, which as "NAT 2" was on the 2003 National Air Tour.
