    I have always loved that plane. Kinda funky and old fashioned looking these days, but wow, what a cool plane. I am soooo jealous!!!!

    Night pictures of DFW and Dallas, TX

    My son took these while he was night flying. It was a quiet night so DFW and Love Field towers let him do some low level flights over DFW and the city.

    NC7501V, housed in my backyard (San Luis Obispo) for years. Never was able to catch a ride, although it showed up at many airshows, local and national. I was lucky enough, as a kid, to take a ride in one with my dad. That must have been circa 1958 or so.

    Home field SBP



    Sold in 2002, not sure where she is now.

    Leaving SLOtown for the last time.



    New kids on the block, three of them, two owned locally, one out of San Mateo.

    Beechcraft Model 17, aka:Staggerwing

    And, I should point out that thanks to Kurt's sleuthing out the new home of NC7501V ... I found out that the "Ford" Tri Motor isn't actually a Ford after all. It's a 1960s vintage Stout Bushmaster 2000; "a small commuter airliner built in the United States in an attempt to revive the Ford Trimotor design."

    I saw an original Ford Tri-Motor at a local Municipal A/Port A/ show..

    Very similar ?..to the Focker Tri-Motor ...favorite of Ol' Adolf.....
