A friend, Addison Pemberton, generously took me aloft yesterday in his latest restoration...a 1936 WACO EQC-6 Custom Cabin biplane. It was a great flight over the area's meadows and orchards. Beautiful workmanship inside and out, very nice cabin with more rear seat leg room than you really need. Despite the high temperatures, it was very comfortable in the cabin thanks to the front windows that roll down. The ambiance is rather like that of a vintage Packard...a car that its original owner probably owned. Here's a video of it recent first post restoration flight.

As the saying goes, "some guys have all the luck"! Congratulations on your flight, and congratulations to Mr. Pemberton and the restoration crew.
