    Antique Airplane Flying

    Every year the antique airplane people have a 'fly-in' to Watsonville Municipal Airport. In 1965, our antique automobile club local chapter volunteered to serve as shuttle transportation from the airfield to town. I decided to write the event up for the antique automobile magazine. I wanted a photo of the whole layout (which had to be in b&w), so I got permission to go up into the tower. But I thought it would be even better to get a photo from a plane. So I asked around, and a guy said he'd take me up. He gave me a leather helmet and I got into the front seat - we took off and circled the airport. I took this picture. After we landed, he told me he'd just bought the plane and had never flown it before!!
