    Neat bird. It sort of looks like a slimmed down version of a Beech 18.

    Edit: I decided to Google it...

    If anyone wants to have this checked out it is about 50 miles from where I live.

    Looks neat...

    A lot of those Dutch pilots are still in Jackson, MS, in the cemetery off the end of rwy 16 at HKS. Their peers make a pilgrimage every few years to the gravesites.

    FWIW, I've never like the looks of the PT19. I like just about every plane out there, even the Bolton Paul Defiant. I just never warmed up to the PT19.

    Nice flying old aircraft, it's got that solid feel of a wooden wing. and the smooth running old ranger 200. But without cockpit canopies it is a sunny day aircraft.
