Congrats to owner Jim Savage for winning the Bronze Age Champion (1937-1941) trophy at Oshkosh 2013. Jim has devoted many years of money, blood, sweat and tears into the restoration of Spartan Executive serial number 17. Hats off to Jim! This Spartan has flown over 50 hours in the last twelve months and plans to attend the Antique Fly-In in Blakesburg, Iowa next week.

Oshkosh 2013 photos are starting to make the rounds. These photo comes from my buddy Jim Buxton who was on the grounds. I requested photos of N500LN, the Howard 500, showing its new paint scheme. Wow... it looks sharp!
The colors match the owners Grumman Albatross. See the link below for more on the Howard 500 and check out past posts on this blog for links to the videos.
