Jan 2012 Linda Buroker-Melhoff had a very Happy New Year!
You may have heard that when I was putting the “All I Want For Christmas” Lady Taildraggers video together I was drooling over a 1940 Porterfield myself. Â I haven’t given up on it yet but it didn’t make it for Christmas 2011. That’s OK though, I’ve got wings to fly whenever I want and no more hangar space anyway. Can’t hurt to dream though! Sounds like this couple did a little dreaming of their own and it paid off. I’m very happy to report there’s a new taildragger project in Linda Melhoff’s hangar and it’s got a big red bow on it. Pretty darn cool. Congratulations Linda and hubby! ……… Â Now back to work you two!! Â Judy
“A Piper Cub of our own! Â My Christmas wish came true (just like the LLT Christmas video) when we brought home this beautiful project on New Year’s Day. Â It has been great Â to be able to get current and fly our friend’s J-3 Cub but there is nothing like having your very own airplane. Â My husband and I will get busy and try to get flying by this coming summer but I love her already.”

Oh wow. I’d love to find something like that. Can’t wait to see her finished!
