Fritz also sent some photos about his Taylor Young A, and the lovely model next to the plane is Fritz's wife Rand.
Fritz says: This plane has a big history and belonged to Mr. Peek, it is in Mr. Peeks book (s/n 260). I got it from Wallace Black just before the tornado got New Castle, OK. It has the original engine in it which was lost for 50 years, and reinstalled quite by accident. People come out of the woodworks wanting to buy this plane back because it was in there past and they find the N number on the computer, but for now it has adopted me, along with seven other antiques. Roger Freeman seems to have flown it when it was in Lavernia, Texas and I may have flown in it in the 50s in Seguin, Texas.
I want to fly it to the Blakesburg fly-in but not this year. The STUPID strut A/D.
