Brad Poling's photos of N382A

N382A was recently flown into Sacramento Executive, where it is now being dismantled for a complete rebuild. Brad tells us that this Mite has spent virtually all of its last 35 years in the Sacramento Valley. It was tucked away on a farm near Davis, CA until fairly recently, so it's not surprising that no one had reported seeing it.

These photos were taken on October 8 at Sacramento Executive airport after the arrival of the Mite from Lodi.

Brad and Jim are also partners in N12817, a Stinson Model O.
