I've got a few old pics I'm pulling out of my Dad's archives from the 50's and 60's
thought you guys might enjoy
some are a little rough, but have that Historical Value to them,....always fun to get the memories going, right?
and maybe answer a question or two for me, maybe recognize an old friend
My Dad, and his Flying Club buddies,...circa 1953 maybe,...
Anyone know these guys,....I can barely recognize my own Dad from back then, (grin)
I think they were all UAF guys, maybe,...
my Dad, Curt Ryden (leaning against the J-3(?) was a mechanic at Elmendorf ,...
I've heard him refer to, "The Little Red School House," as the plane they learned to fly in,...this one below
can anyone ID that airplane for me,....and I think that's Gene (?), the guy that taught them all
and here's a few others, a classic, from the PNA days...and can anyone tell me where this is,...??
looks a lot like Kodiak, the Navy plane,...could it be ??
Nah,....I don't know, but it's tearing me up looking and wondering
My Dad is still around, I'll grill him more later,...I just ran into these and was wondering if anyone here would know anymore about them
