enjoyed your homepage. brought back memories. was at cu chi 1966-1967, with the AGC.
I enjoyed reading your airplane, journey of love, project. I purchased a 1958 Tri-pacer 1 year ago and have taken on the task of recovering the wings and tail feathers this winter. I have striped everthing and was starting to feel overwhelmed until I read your story. I hope to be back flying by spring. I can hardly wait to fly back into the Great Bear wilderness this comming summer.
Dave, I am only 31 .born in 1968. I would like to say thank you for your great story. Also thank you for being a damn good american. PEACE & LOVE Blaine Yaeger
Great pictures! Nice to see a well maintained Tri-Pacer. I used to own a 1961 Piper Colt and really enjoyed flying it. Hope to someday purchase a Tri-Pacer or maybe another Colt. They’re great airplanes.
I’m a student at the Belgian Air Force studying flightmechanics and I want discuss the tri-pacer in all his technical ways, like the engine . So if you could give more technical information about the plane or if you know an adress on the internet, plese send it to me. My uncle also has a tri-pacer, the OO-JAK! But he can’t give me all the information I need, but you had to fix your plane so I hope that you can give more technical information. Kind regards, Olivier Etienne p.s.:nice homepage
I wish to know about the battle in Gia Dinh on 5/11/68. SGT Leonard Bell of the 25th inf div was killed in action on that day. Thank you
