    The EAA shot that picture plus about another 300 in 09.

    a lot of gems in this thread ! I forget who told me about the anti-theft switch, "if somebody's young enough to jump in the Clipper they won't be able to find the starter, and if they know where the starter is they're probably too old to jump in..."

    good luck with your "new" plane Doyle, my sister in-law lives in Plainfield and we'll be up that way at some point... Cheers

    Hi Donn. That’s a good laugh and now I’m going to figure out what the original location was just for fun. Please give a shout when you fly to VT. I reckon KMPV is closest to Plainfield and I bet we could squeeze a second Clipper in my hangar.

    Thanks for the link to the ‘50 Pacer POH...! That’s very helpful as I educate myself on the PA 16.

    I based my ‘47 Luscombe on VT grass strips for most of the 17 years I owned it and fully understand all the advantages of flying off the lawn. But the hangar I was able to lease is at KMPV and I try to commute to Burlington as often as possible so keeping the Clipper straight on the tar is a vital skill. I fully plan to touch down on all the grass strips I can next summer, especially places that have the grass strip right next to the paved.

    Thanks or all the info—so appreciated...!
