FAIRCHILD F24

by Eli C.Wenger
(Akron,Pa.17501)

I Had a Fairchild F24, # NC9387, it was a delite to fly,with a Scarb Werner Radial, 185, 1938 mode.


It could fly on its own, I went up to 500 feet one day, trimmed it out, landed, started over with hands & feet free, full power, it took off and leveled at 500 feet. It was called a ladies airplane, with balanced controls. It had a Motorola Air Boy radio, I still have. I still have 2 mags for the 185 when I replaced the engine. I have feeler gauges to adjust the valves. When I would land, many would come out to see this magnificent plane.

Wish I still had it today, but would be broke.
