Terry and Mary Meyer came all the way from Winona, Minnesota to see that N4149E has gone to a good home. (Mary's father, Boyde Anderson, bought the Mite from Ben Workman and owned it briefly before passing away last year). They stayed in the apartment which looks out on the runway as well as down on the airplanes parked inside.
As mentioned elsewhere on this site, N4118 was discovered going to waste in the back of a hangar in Connecticut.
Jim's PA-15 Vagabond and Mite wait outside Friday while N4118 is removed from its travel trailer. There were about a dozen fuselages already in the hangar.
Harold Hanson is very proud of N4149E, the latest addition to his fleet of pristine aircraft which he keeps in several hangars in Concrete. Harold's beautiful new hangar has a 5000 square foot floor area and an upstairs apartment built especially for accommodating visiting pilots.
Along with half a dozen loads of other airplane parts and pieces, Jim Jenkins trucked the Mite to the West Coast.
Saturday morning coffee in the Pilot's lounge (L to R): Mal Gross, Gil Gilbert, Terry and Mary Meyer, Harold Hanson, Jim Jenkins, and Cadet owner Carl Badgett.
