Jan 2013 Bonnie Johnson (Kansas)
Bonnie Johnson is based at 3KS5,Â High Point Airport, Valley Center, Kansas.
My engagement ring was a 1946 Luscombe 8A (N71718). After marrying my husband I learned to fly “Fairlady”. I soloed her just before my 30th birthday. My checkride with the Luscombe was 6 months later. I have over 500 hours in her. Sad to say I had to sell her.
However, my taildragger time has not ended. I now fly my husband’s design, the Merkel Mark II Maverick. It is a marvelous aerobatic biplane.
It is safe to say I may have more taildragger (conventional) time than tricycle time.
