These were pretty easy to find. I pulled out my Unibit and drilled of the rudder cable holes called for in the plans.

The family and I were out at our East Texas hangar cutting grass and doing a general cleanup when this one-of-kind beauty taxied up. This is Bill Allan and his 1949 Luscombe T8F. I made him wait while I ran in a got my cameras. What a cool aircraft! It has tandom seats and dual throttle controls.

The guy who gets to sit in the back seat is one lucky bugger. Talk about visability! It has a clear shaded canopy over the rear seat.

Bill graciously agreed to let me shoot some pics while he took off and circled the field.

Eat my dust!!

What a cool bird!
