I am not asking much, just, when and if it is ever sold... it would mean more to me than any other buyer.

I am getting some pics from the fam back in MI... some of the plane. How incredible... Google is freaking awesome. I am so happy that I found it and who is flying it. Id love to jumpseat out to Cali just to take it up!

I wanna see any pics you find. I only realized last week in something you posted that you are a former michigan boy!!!!

I betcha he'd get a kick out of hearing about his plane...and yeah somewere down the line he'll probably take you up on it...give you first consideration.

Yeah, I am an ol Michigan dairy farmer...

I also located my grandfathers FIRST plane... a 1948 Cessna 170 that he bought new. It resides in Utah currently.

I have had one hell of a great week at home.
I searched the database at AOPA in the members section to find the current owners of the two planes my dad owned. There is a particular database where you enter N number and get the name and city of the owner. Using phone books I found addresses and sent letters to the owners. Both planes (a T-craft and a Champ) are still flying, and owned by guys who fly them from their own private strips.

I found the owner, I will be sending him a letter with copies of some photos of me and gramps with the plane.
